About Mettle, Abby, and You
Every piece of Mettle is lovingly made with intuitive design and a passion to bring you truly one of a kind jewelry no one else has.
Mettle is made to help you remember, celebrate, and share that you are not like anyone else! There is such strength and beauty in what makes you different from the rest.
The struggle to fit in (or not) is rough, especially when you're a teenager. When I was 15, I decided that trying to fit in not only made me unhappy, but it was also an unworthy waste of time. I celebrated the decision to openly and fully be me by making jewelry for myself. People quickly caught on and I saw that I could spread my mission to others!
Here I am, 31 and counting, in my favorite place doing my favorite thing.
There’s something magical about a one of a kind piece of jewelry made by happy, intuitive hands! Wearing something no one else has is the best way to express yourself!
My mission is to help strengthen and encourage people to be confidently themselves.
Making jewelry is the only thing I have ever wanted to do. My heart is fully in this for you. Following your heart and trusting your intuition are the keys to becoming the best and happiest you this world can have! I want my jewelry to help you celebrate as it has helped me!
Celebrate one of a kindness.
My Promise to You
I want you to wear your Mettle jewelry… a LOT! That means, I strive to make every piece as comfortable and durable (thanks for the engineering gene, Dad!) as possible. I also want you to be as excited about your jewelry as I am! That means, if you aren’t in love, let me know, I want to make it right!
I want your Mettle by Abby jewelry to remind you that no one in this world is like you, and that is cause to celebrate!
How is Mettle by Abby made?
Every piece of Mettle by Abby is hand-forged by me, Abby Meadows, in my private studio (my favorite place on Earth!)
What do I mean by “hand-forged?” Well, I don’t cast anything and everything is hand made. This means I fuse and solder all the silver and gold with a torch, I form and bend with a hammer and anvil.
No two pieces are the same or even reproducible due to the nature of how I create!
To further instill this one of a kindness into your jewelry, I seek out natural gemstones full of wild and irreplaceable characteristics. Pursuing these stones is one of my favorite things to do and I want you to feel like you’re doing the same when you peruse my shop. My heart sings out when I find a stone I need to take home and make something with. You will experience a similar effect when you find the right piece of jewelry. The wonderful thing about jewelry that sets it apart from other kinds of art, is that you can wear it and express yourself! So why settle for anything less than one of a kind!?!
