In Situ is a handmade jewelry line founded in 2015 by designer Suzanne Lydia. Every piece of In Situ is fabricated by hand in a small studio on the central California coast. 


We are committed to using sustainable and quality materials, and minimal waste practices. 

The metals we use to create your pieces originate in the USA, and all of our silver pieces are made with 100% recycled sterling silver. 

All orders are shipped in plastic-free packaging. Our mailers are compostable, and our designs are shipped in USA made, reusable jewelry boxes. 


Thank you for being here. It is my true passion to create pieces for you and your loved ones. I am captivated by the process of designing and creating pieces out of raw metal and precious stone, knowing they will be treasured for years to come. 

Customers always ask what In Situ means. It is a beautiful, Latin word which translates to “in place.” My hope is that every piece of In Situ is a sweet reminder to focus on the positive, and to live in the present. 

Thank you for supporting this woman owned, USA made, small business. Your support truly means so much.
