Ashley is a self taught silversmith specializing in highly personalized jewelry made from your pet's actual prints, cremations, fingerprints, handwriting, and more. She began creating jewelry in 2011, after looking for a necklace with her first born's name on it and failing to find anything she felt spoke for the overwhelming amount of love she had for him. Her first cremation piece was created shortly after with her own father's ashes. Her work and techniques are ever-evolving as she aims to help her customers embrace and champion over their grief, something she struggles with herself.
Ashley grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and relocated to North Carolina in her early twenties. She lives among the Blue Ridge Mountains- just outside of Asheville- with her two beautiful and wild sons and her woodworking Veteran husband.
