Design Process 

Raw materials of the highest quality are transformed into energetically empowering jewelry for expressing your life. 

 
 

HANDCRAFTED & ONE OF A KIND

Each piece of Skullptress jewelry is created by Natilie Michaels in her Big Sur studio.

Skullptress jewelry is literally made by hand with tools and techniques used by jewelry makers all over the world going back to ancient times. Each piece created is unique and completely one of a kind. 


CONFLICT FREE & FAIR TRADE

All diamonds and gemstones used in Skullptress deigns are conflict free & fair trade. The stones I use are carefully tracked to ensure they meet my high standards of social and environmental responsibility.

ETHICALLY SOURCED & NATURALLY MINED

 The ethically sourced natural diamonds originate from mines that adhere to strict labor, trade, and environmental standards.

Additionally, I am committed to responsible labor practices. Many jewelers outsource their production to countries where labor and environmental standards are weak or poorly enforced. While this may reduce cost, it often comes at the expense of product quality as well as worker health and safety

The mother of pearl shell used in my beads are from cultivated stocks of Pinctada Maxima, not from wild-harvested marine molluscs. The abalone pieces are also from aquaculture operations, not wild-harvested.

RECYCLED METALS

I strive to use recycled metals (sterling silver & gold) whenever possible. Recycled metals are an important component of Skullptresses commitment to the environment.
