Hey! I'm Ana Brazaityte and I'm the owner, designer, and maker of Truss and Ore Jewelry, based in San Francisco. My line of unique, contemporary jewelry is most inspired by modern art and architecture. I especially love the style of the Bauhaus school and the artists' intentional and artful approach to creating beautiful and functional objects. I take this same approach with every piece of jewelry I make.
If you're looking for a fresh perspective in fine jewelry, an alternative style, something that will be elegant and timeless, you've come to the right place!
I've practiced metalworking since 2011 and also teach beginner jewelry classes at Scintillant Studio in the Mission District of San Francisco.
I believe strongly in the value of quality craftsmanship and really taking the proper time to fabricate each piece of jewelry. I use recycled metals whenever possible and only ethically sourced gem stones. I also work hard to reduce waste in my production process and save scrap metal pieces for re-use/recycling.
You can rest assured that every piece of Truss and Ore jewelry you buy is carefully handcrafted to high quality, ethical, and sustainable standards.
I make Truss and Ore pieces by hand, from start to finish in my San Francisco studio. Only one small part of my production is outsourced, which is the casting of a few components. For this, I work with local artist Kenly Warren.
For custom pieces, I can work with you on everything from sketching a design to the final finishing to create your dream piece. A design consultation is always free and available in person for those in the Bay Area or through a video chat if you're not local.
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions and custom jewelry inquiries!
