Lindsey Snell is an Portland-based artist, jeweler, and writer with a special love for the storytelling power of material. 

I handcraft evocative, everyday jewelry offering clever interpretations of American iconography, symbols, and industrial materials. The pieces emerge as I collect and research each material's life history. From the mild steel used in building foundations to the naval brass developed to standup against sea water and adorn the coat of a Lieutenant, the materials talk about our collective past and every piece is made to continue its life story as part of your personal history.
