WHITNEY SHELHAMER FINE JEWELRY
Currently residing on the Oregon coast, jewelry designer and owner of Manna, Whitney specializes in fine metal and precious stone pieces. Certified conflict free diamonds and colorful gems are carefully selected, gold is carved and sanded by hand. Striking, forged solitaires and curated cluster settings are formed into one of a kind pieces with signature organic bands and earthy, etched textures. Using historic jewelry method tools, Shelhamer's collections reflect the stroke of a file, notched details and custom finishes for clients. Beyond her own bench work, Whitney carefully selects unique fine jewelry pieces that are available in Manna as well.
Whitney and film-maker husband, Zak Shelhamer (www.zakshelhamer.com), live with their two boxer pups, working and playing along the California and Oregon coastlines. In 2016, the Shelhamers opened MANNA, their working studio and retail shop where customers can try on the jewelry in person and often times, witness the pieces being constructed within ear shot.
