 Serpentine jewelry designer Jesseca Mccloskey 

Serpentine is curated and designed by Jesseca McCloskey in Portland, Oregon.

Jesseca grew up going to flea markets on the East Coast, developing a love for vintage and antiques at an early age. She has been drawn to jewelry and the art of adornment her whole life (maybe being a Taurus has something to do with that)! She is a firm believer in jewelry as a type of armor- a layer you put on that helps you feel powerful as you go about your day. 

Jesseca holds a BFA in the visual arts and has been designing jewelry for nearly twenty years. She seeks out heirloom quality vintage pieces with a story to tell and takes great joy in connecting these objects of the past with you. She is endlessly inspired by Victorian, Art Deco and Art Nouveau designs and aims to strike the perfect balance between dark and moody/ timeless and classic. You’ll notice some common favorite themes around here include the celestial, astrological, witchy, sentimental and symbolic. 

2023 marked the year that Jesseca launched a collection of her own original jewelry designs which are hand carved in wax (by Jess) and cast locally in metal. It is naturally inspired by antique jewelry as well as symbols of luck, protection and transformation. This new direction has been a long time coming and she's over the moon to be able to share it with you! 

When Jesseca is not making or dreaming about jewelry, she can usually be found haunting thrift stores, escaping to the coast (her happy place) or snuggling her fluffy cat, Morpheus aka Mr. Biscuits.
