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.
Committed to Sustainability
Here at Sticks & Stones I'm committed to sustainability. Not only with my material selection, but with my process. I use wood scraps that would normally be thrown away. I reuse anything I can from gloves to stirrers to containers and everything in between. I strive to generate as little waste as possible.

One of My Favorite Materials
Brown lip mother of pearl is one of my favorite precious materials to
work with. Not only is it absolutely stunning, but it is also
sustainable and can be ethically sourced. It's not so easy to find
though. While mother of pearl may look like pearls, there are some key differences between the two.
