“When I was like ten at camp, I was the one making really badass friendship bracelets,” Jess Hannah explains. “And in high school I would make stuff with chain, crystals, and wire wrapping.” During her (very recent!) university days at Cal Poly, she started taking metalsmithing extracurricular courses at a local jeweler's studio, and that’s where she really found her footing, whizzing past her classmates and following a teacher’s urging to give this jewelry-making thing an old college try. ...

“When I was like ten at camp, I was the one making really badass friendship bracelets,” Jess Hannah explains. “And in high school I would make stuff with chain, crystals, and wire wrapping.” During her (very recent!) university days at Cal Poly, she started taking metalsmithing extracurricular courses at a local jeweler's studio, and that’s where she really found her footing, whizzing past her classmates and following a teacher’s urging to give this jewelry-making thing an old college try.

Buoyed by, as she puts it, her “can-do attitude and a strong will,” Jess started a namesake line in July 2014—and launched a style blog rooted in her pared-down vibe hardly a month later. Because why not? She saw the opportunity to establish a strong personal brand—and it doesn’t hurt that her aesthetic is like fashion-world catnip.

“With minimalist design, I think what goes into it a lot is discretion—holding back from going full force and embellishing. A lot of minimalist jewelry looks really similar, so finding that special touch makes your piece stand out,” she adds. Her pieces, all made from solid, recycled 14-karat gold, are meant to worn always—not that you’d ever want to take them off. — koun bae
