Welcome! Suzanne here, founder x designer of In Situ Jewelry. Every piece of In Situ is handmade to order in my studio in Santa Cruz, California. Most pieces begin as sheet metal or wire, which is then hand cut, formed, and finished in house. I am captivated by this process of transforming raw metal and stones into beautiful pieces, made to be treasured for years to come. 

Sustainability is very important to me. All orders are shipped in 100% plastic-free packaging. Every piece of packaging that comes into my studio (from supply orders, etc.) is recycled or reused, and I recycle all scrap metals. All of the metals I use originate in the USA, and all sterling silver pieces are made with 100% recycled silver. 

In Situ is Latin for “in place.” It refers to something that exists in its natural, original environment. My hope is that every piece of In Situ evokes light, and reminds the wearer to stay positive and present, with the trust that everything is in its place. 

It is my true passion to create pieces for you and your loved ones. Can’t believe it’s been six years now! Thank you for your support, it means the world to me 🖤
