Jodie Guirey is made to order demi-fine jewelry that takes hints of classic, nostalgic silhouettes and reinterprets them with refined contemporary elements. Our jewelry is made with recycled and deadstock materials and fair trade, conflict-free gemstones. Our mission is to find a beautiful balance between high and low jewelry while blurring the lines between old and new. We work alongside a small team of jewelers and producers in Los Angeles to help bring our vision to life. Various techniques are used to create our jewelry including handcrafting, hand sculpting for lost wax casting, and CAD printing.
Our mission is to create aura around every piece of jewelry. We design jewelry that is made to last generations. The majority of the jewelry is carefully gold-filled and plated for accessibility. We ask that you respect each piece; take care of it accordingly, and your jewelry will last as long as you’d like. Most of our jewelry can be custom made to any karat and metal as they are all made to order. Please email us for any requests.
Jodie Guirey is a first generation Filipina raised in Lakewood, CA. Her innate entrepreneurship and curiosity with form and design developed at a young age from her parents. Her father was a Civil Engineer of his own company and taught her the value of creating something out of nothing. Her mother taught her the power of minimalism with her unique style and manner . Both parents enjoyed relaying stories of their childhood growing up in the Philippines, immigrating to Chicago, IL then later settling in Long Beach, CA. Their cherished items full of memories were tucked away in their closet, waiting to be rediscovered and reminisced through their stories. Jodie's favorite items are her father's harmonica that she would wake up to being played in the mornings, and her mother's diamond and pearl jewels that were only allowed to be worn on special occasions.
Jodie attended Otis College of Art and Design to major in Product Design, and soon started work in the fashion industry. While creating jewelry to fulfill her design needs, she ultimately gained a following. Her love for jewelry intensified and she decided to quit her full time job to attend FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising to study Jewelry Design. Her studies included intense training from jewelry professionals on the techniques of metal smithing, lost wax casting, illustration, and computer aided design. Jodie continues her education at GIA/Gemological Institute of America. She currently holds a Colored Stones Essentials Certificate with a goal of achieving her Graduate Gemologist certification. She continues to research and experiment with jewelry through her namesake collection. Jodie lives and works in Mid-City Los Angeles with her rescue pup Pancake.
