Olivia Shih: Jewelry for the Inquisitive

blog-olivia

 

Halstead Grant Top 10 Finalist Olivia Shih creates eye-catching jewelry that reflects the urban experience through inventive textures, colors and forms gleaned from her travels to various cities.

 

Olivia is a globetrotter who is devoted to designing and making jewelry in an ethical way, whether it be through using recycled precious metals or using gemstones from reputable sources.

Olivia’s adventures in jewelry making began after she realized that the fast-paced, highly competitive lifestyle she’d begun just wasn’t for her.

Unafraid of hard work centered on building a business, she went back to school to study jewelry design.

She says, “Art school allowed me to make sense of what made me

 

happy, what I could do, what kind of life I wanted, and where all these things intersected.”
