Where function meets fancy...
Welcome to my one-woman shop, nestled in the heart of rural Eastern Oregon. Here, I pour my heart and soul into every piece, crafting jewelry and gear that embody the essence of the wild west.
With a keen eye for quality, I hand fabricate each item in-house, ensuring that only the highest-grade materials are used. Sterling silver, copper, brass, and steel become the canvas for my creations, reflecting the rugged allure of the western landscape.
The beauty of my designs is matched only by the authenticity of the stones I source. Working with genuine stone dealers and talented lapidary artists across the United States, I select stones that resonate with the spirit of the land, bringing a touch of nature's marvel to my pieces.
At the core of my craft lies a commitment to durability. I take pride in creating gear that is not only built to use but also built to last. Each item is a testament to hardiness and is crafted with the intention of becoming an heirloom that stands the test of time.
As you explore my collection, you'll discover a harmonious blend of western elegance and resilience. My jewelry and gear is a reflection of the untamed spirit of the wild west, made with love and care to become cherished treasures in your journey.
Thank you for joining me on this creative adventure. I invite you to experience the allure of the wild west through my handcrafted pieces, each a unique celebration of the rugged beauty that surrounds us.
Meet the Maker
Meet the artist behind the creations - I'm Carlee Stutz, a 25-year-old jewelry artisan with a deep passion for crafting sterling silver and turquoise jewelry, alongside sterling silver hardware. Originally hailing from the picturesque landscapes of northern Colorado, I now call rural eastern Oregon my home, where the enchanting high desert serves as a wellspring of inspiration for my work.
Nature's raw beauty, from the vast horizons to the intricate details of desert flora, infuses my creations with an authentic sense of the wild west. The allure of the high desert landscape reflects in each piece I meticulously handcraft and adds a touch of rustic elegance to each piece I create.
Currently, I have the honor of studying under the skilled guidance of Pat Horlacher, honing my craft creating a variety of sterling silver jewelry and hardware as well as the renowned Horlacher and Marsh bits (formally Marsh Bros and Al Teigen). The opportunity to work with such skilled craftsman is a true testament to my dedication to the art and my reverence for the western heritage.
Through my artistry, I aim to celebrate the spirit of the Great Basin, capturing the essence of the desert in each piece I create. As you explore my work, I invite you to immerse yourself in the magic of the high desert, and experience the timeless allure that springs forth from every piece I create.
Thank you for joining me on this journey of craftsmanship and reverence for the land. I am excited to share my creations with you and to have you as a part of this creative voyage into the heart of the wild west.
