Welcome! We're so glad you found our magical little shop! Serpentine is curated by Jesseca McCloskey in Portland, Oregon. Jesseca grew up going to flea markets on the East Coast and has had a life long infatuation with treasure hunting and jewelry design. She's been creating jewelry for 15+ years and is most inspired by well-loved vintage finds that seem to have a story to tell. She seeks out heirloom quality pieces that often need a little tlc and restores/ transforms them so they can live their best new lives with you. Jesseca is particularly drawn to Art Deco, Victorian and Art Nouveau designs as well as anything celestial, astrological, sentimental (lockets!), superstitious (good luck charms!) and the occult.
The idea for this shop began as a big dream a few years ago when Jesseca was living in a tiny house, collecting pretty things in storage bins that piled up to the ceiling in the living room. Those pretty things eventually made their way to a pop up space in the back of Porch Light as well as to a case in a local antique mall, Antique Alley (case #19)... and at long last the web shop lives! Jesseca now has a proper workspace to tuck all the bins of pretty things and you never know what gems are going to be pulled out next so we do hope you'll check back in to see what's new!
