About Us

Spreading the gospel of levity, one piece of jewelry at a time.

Welcome to Hawk + Handsaw Jewelry. Through our irreverent and quirky wood earrings and necklaces, we aim to help you take life a little less seriously. We’ve created everyday-wear pieces in both bold and understated styles because we know you’re complex, and we applaud it.

Seattle-based, we laser cut and engrave our pieces from sustainable plywood. The natural earthy tones of wood allow our jewelry to go with everything, so you can save the time you spend thinking about accessorizing for another pursuit. Maybe thinking about your special someone, or maybe dessert. We think a lot about dessert.

We do take your happiness very seriously, and we offer returns or exchanges on any order you are not thrilled with.

Why do we call ourselves “Hawk + Handsaw”?

It’s a Hamlet reference: “I am but mad north-north-west: when the wind is southerly, I know a hawk from a handsaw.” You’re probably thinking, given our sensibilities, why reference a tragedy like Hamlet? It’s because we’re also complex.

A lover of chocolate, leopard print, and, of course, jewelry, she’s always up for talking books or reproductive justice.
