Artifacts is a New York City based jewelry line founded by Casey Perez, a designer who unexpectedly fell into jewelry after taking a metalsmithing course at NYU while studying psychology and art history. After graduation Perez did a 180 and launched Artifacts, bringing a love of art and design, sustainability, and hard work to the table. The jewelry is made in her Brooklyn studio using locally and responsibly sourced materials, like stones from dealers in NYC’s jewelry district and recycled silver for all of the silver pieces. The jewelry, with its contemporary shapes, results in modern yet playful designs that are delightful to wear.
