About Our Process
Hi, my name's Benjamin Posin and I'm the founder and jeweler at Sticks & Stones Jewelry.
I start by sourcing the perfect wood for the base of the jewelry, selected for both its beauty and durability. The wood is then shaped for proper size and style, and the top & side materials are added along with the hand pierced metals. With attention to every detail, and to ensure fit and comfort - the wood is sanded, soaked, and cured to then be thoroughly inspected, polished to perfection, and ready to wear. Materials may be custom curated or designed in house. My process welcomes and invites your vision for limitless possibilities. There is no end to the variety of styles that can be imagined and created.
Each creation is brought to life by hand using old world techniques and unique materials. Check out the video below to learn more.
