Sunflower Jam started as a curious hobby driven by some serious day job blues (hello fashion industry!) and the need for a creative outlet (hello diamond district!). I was frustrated that many jewelry companies made it so difficult to customize and how insane mark ups were for solid 14k gold pieces—so I learned to make the things I dreamed of wearing that I couldn't afford.
I quickly learned how beautiful it was to make pieces that would never lose their value, pieces that had the flexibility to be exactly what the customer was dreaming of, and could be passed down for generations. There is nothing quite like working on a piece for someone that they are going to take with them on life's journey. I want these pieces to not just be Sunflower Jam, but something personal, to be treasured and worn until the cows come home.
I have taken a lot of time to not only source materials and packaging thoughtfully and sustainably, but to have my business support other small businesses I have made relationships with in NYC. Seeing SJ support small vendors and local artists for custom projects (hello my amazing illustration, photography, and 3D friends!) brings me so much joy.
Sunflower Jam is sort of an extension of me and my quirky personality, not limited to its products, but a world that is fun loving, flexible, committed to the finest sustainable materials, and inspired by its customers and the reality in which the treasures live their long life— until, of course, they would be melted down and remade new again.
Which btw, I'm proud to say that we do that, and we give you a hell of a discount too ;)
