Betsy and Iya

Betsy Cross, a Portland-based jewelry designer working under the label Betsy & Iya, creates boldly of-the-moment necklaces and earrings using repurposed vintage materials. She handmakes each item—from small details such as her signature earring hooks, hand-formed from sterling silver, to her custom-cast dog tags.
Large, quirky charms and swooping chains characterize much of Cross' designs for a striking yet indubitably feminine effect, while items like the "If" Morse Code Necklace work for a more gender-neutral look.
Featured on Cool Hunting in January 2010 we will be welcoming the Betsy and Iya line of jewelry to the Emporium... with new pieces to arrive within the next week or two. Keep watching!
