Old Blood Jewelry & Wears

Old Blood Jewelry & Wears was started in 2012 by Morgan Jamison. A 2009 Graduate of the University of the Arts Jewelry/Metals Program, I have been making jewelry for as long as I can remember. It started by picking up treasures on the ground as a child and wearing them, and in a sense, that's still how it remains... The fascination with the things I see and places I find.

I see jewelry and the things you choose to carry on the body as more than just an expression of identity and as a maker, I see the things we create as more than just an art form. It is a human impulse and it is just as old as we are. Even when we are making something new, the need we are answering is an old one.

I make jewelry with the intention of empowers the wearer and captivating a viewer. I employ many processes and materials in my work, rarely does a piece have just one process employed or material used. Color, contrast and textures figure highly into my aesthetic and design decisions.
