Exodus Goldsmiths is a woman-owned business in an industry that is predominantly male. We’re hoping to change that.
While the jewelry industry itself has advanced greatly in regards to technology and innovation over the past 100 years, there is a lack of representation by the clients it predominantly serves: women.
At Exodus Goldsmiths, we believe that sustainability, transparency, and craftsmanship are of the highest importance. The actual art of jewelry making is nearly lost. Gold plated, hollow, cheaply made jewelry is the new norm. We create art, but we also help our clients design high quality heirlooms that they will pass on from generation to generation—pieces that last the test of time. We use only recycled precious metals, and responsibly sourced gemstones, diamonds and pearls. Our clients deserve to be informed, educated, and be at peace knowing that not only will their piece last for generations, but that the materials used to craft it are eco-friendly and human-rights friendly. Please visit our Ethics & Sustainability page for more detailed information.
ONE WOMAN/ ONE MAN/ TWO CAT TEAM
What is Your Favorite Type of Jewelry To Make/Design?
Definitely engagement rings! I enjoy making any type of jewelry, but engagement rings are special because you're making them a family heirloom that will be passed down (hopefully) for another hundred years. The ring I make will far outlive me as a human, and I that just boggles my mind sometimes.
How Did You Come Up With Your Business Name?
Exodus chapter 31, verses 3-5. It talks about a man named Bezalel and how God gifted him with wisdom and knowledge and skills. Specifically artistic skills of designing works in previous metals and setting gems. This passage inspired me to create a fine jewelry brand where I can express the skills and talents He has given me.
Are You LGBTQIA+ Friendly?
While we are a Christian-based small business, we fully support the LGBTQIA+ communities right to love whom they love and express that.
It would be our honor to be a part of your unique love story, no matter your sexual orientation, gender, etc.

GOLDSMITH, JEWELRY DESIGNER, CAT MOM
Exodus Goldsmiths developed from a long-term love affair with gemstones and other sparkly things. I believe in creating one-of-a-kind wearable works of art that will last for generations.
I am a GIA certified Applied Jewelry Professional and I am also working towards my graduate degree in Gemology. I formally apprenticed and trained under a master goldsmith for starting at age 15, and have worked for many other jewelry companies since.
I live in Carlsbad, California with my two fur babies Freya & Luna. When I'm not working on jewelry design, you will almost always catch me reading Sarah J Maas books with a hot cup of black tea (no matter the time of year) or watching the latest seasons of the Witcher.
