“My beautiful custom made wedding ring arrived today. It is simply exquisite! My experience with Chayse was wonderful from start to finish. I cannot recommend her work more highly.”
“When dreams are made in the mountains and on long trails, it’s a perfect gift to take the trail and turn it into the mountains. The custom mountain necklace designed from the elevation profile of a trail turned out perfectly. Something super meaningful that reminds us of a goal, but subtle.”
“Oh my. How I love this ring, I feel so lucky to own it. Beautifully done leaf cutouts, nicely set stone. The wide band hugs my finger like an old friend. And the stone itself! Like vines creeping over a silver moon. All in all, a story piece, a little piece of growth magic in silver. Chayse is a talented artist and silversmith. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on her creations <3”
