Arcana Silver is the work of goldsmith and solo entrepreneur Jenna Bantjes.
How did you get into metalsmithing?
Always a creative child, the conscious desire to work with my hands started while attending art college for graphic design. I love the design process and there's something about working with tangible materials that has always called to me.
A few years after graduating, I signed up for a basic metalsmithing class through a local continuing eduation program and fell in love. At the time, it felt impossible which- being someone who loves a good challenge- was incredibly appealing.
Today, the process of melting metal with fire feels powerful, and being able to take materials from the earth and shape them into something beautiful and meaningful is incredibly satisfying.
The longevity of jewelry appeals to me. The ability to craft heirloom quality pieces for my customers and know that those pieces can last a lifetime and beyond- there's a lot to that.
But it's the stories behind a piece of jewelry- the connection, meaning, and memories- those are what I love the most.
We believe jewelry should spark joy and make you feel empowered. We strive to bring you inspiring pieces that evoke connection, self-expression, and healing.
We believe that making heirloom quality jewelry is more ethical and sustainable than fast fashion.
We are committed to giving back and have a growing line of products that directly contribute to global causes.
Our goal is to make jewelry accessible, so that when you find the perfect piece that you connect with, it will fit your body and your budget.
We bring together the finest materials and stunning design to create something very special. We believe in quality, care, and creating unique products that everyone can enjoy.
Colorful, creative, and inspired by the beauty of the earth, each product represents what we love about the world we live in.
We hope they'll inspire you too.
