I'm Lindsey, the owner of Riveted Oak Designs. I'm a skier, hiker, camper, and backpacker, and I love being outdoors in general. I'm also a stagehand, a mom, an artist, a craftsperson, and a seamstress. I started making gear and accessories because I saw a need for products that could stand up to a beating, whether it be while working in a harness, hiking, or just running around in the great outdoors! I enjoy making modern, clean jewelry inspired by the natural world, that won’t break or tarnish if it’s not taken off for a few days (or longer).
I create products that are durable, simple, and tough, but still fun! I listen to the folks around me when they say "I wish someone made a _____" and then I start prototyping. Simply put: I design and make the things that I see a need for. I strive to make every product both fully functional and aesthetically pleasing, and if it’s not, I head back to the workshop. As a result, my products are constantly changing and evolving, and I think that this is a good thing!
All of my jewelry and accessories are handmade. Some of my accessories are made in collaboration with others, although the designs prototypes are all my own. I only work with companies that provide good working conditions and fair treatment for the folks that are doing the work.
