J + I Jewelry, founded in 1999 by Jessica and Ian Gibson, is designed by Ian and completely handmade in the heart of Philadelphia. The studio of talented artisans is filled with the sound of hammers, sanders, and laughter. Self taught in the art of jewelry fabrication, Ian's fascination with metals formed from a schooling in geology and a desire to work with his hands. The organic and artisanal designs are created combining sterling silver and 14k gold fill metals with gemstones and pearls. Each piece is made as if it were a gift for someone dear!
