My name is Shannon Maureen Russell, and I am the artist who creates each piece of jewelry you see here. Handcrafted in my home art studio in Atlantic Beach, Florida, every finished piece is as unique as you!
Located just over a mile from the Atlantic Ocean, my daily inspiration comes from my walks along the northeast coast of Florida. I grew up near the Great Lakes of Michigan and have always loved being around (and in!) the water. It is my intention to share this love for our lakes, oceans, and rivers with you through my contemporary coastal designs.
The protection of our oceans and lakes is extremely important to me. This is why I donate to causes that support our waters, including the United States National Marine Sanctuaries. Because the health of our environment also hinges on green practices in the studio, the majority of my precious metals are reclaimed and recycled, and sea glass is a nature-formed treasure that was once trash. As well, all gemstones have been responsibly sourced, including Australian opals that I often purchase directly from the miners themselves! High quality, environmentally friendly, beautiful jewelry makes you look even more stunning on the outside and feel beautiful on the inside -- feel-good jewelry! Breathe easy knowing that your pieces are inspired by nature and protect it as well.
Each handcrafted, one of a kind piece will vary slightly from the photos. These variances allow each piece of your jewelry to be truly unique and never detract from the quality of work or the intricacies of design. Every piece of Shannon Russell Jewelry® is truly only yours.
