Betsy & Iya

Betsy & Iya® started in 2008 in a coffeeshop with a notebook, a bright red pencil, and nothing to lose.  Among scribbles and coffee stains, the words “jewelry making” appeared in that notebook.
Betsy wrote it down, thought about it for a while, and then she made some jewelry.  And it worked, so she did it some more.

    Inspired by her travels and by the bond a bridge makes between the communities it spans, designer Betsy Cross brings us the Bridge Cuff Collection. Each cuff is a celebration of the bridge’s unique elements and structural beauty. Etched on the inside you’ll find the year the bridge was completed and its geographic coordinates.

    Materials: Hand-formed raw brass. 

    Made by hand in our Portland, Oregon production studio. 

    Raw brass will tarnish naturally. Tarnish can be removed with a polishing cloth.

    You'll get more life out of your cuff if you put it on and remove it properly. Click to watch our how-to video about this.

    Bronze and sterling silver can tarnish over time. Both can be brought back to their original luster with a polishing cloth. We recommend removing the jewelry when it makes most sense–e.g. don't do hardcore outdoor sports with your pieces on, don't wear them in a hot tub or submerged in water for a long period of time, put jewelry on after putting products in hair, etc. and you should be good to go!
