Corey Egan: The Perfect Mother's Day Gift

Posted by

Beautiful, edgy, and entirely individual. These are the three feelings that Corey Egan keeps in mind for her customers when designing her jewelry. She says "my work is pretty, sure, but it’s also fierce, bold, and timeless. Just like you." Make sure Mom feels that this Mother's Day with a gift from our Corey Egan collection. 

When she was five, Corey began drawing, eventually transitioning into painting, carving and sculpting during her teen years and developing the skills that would translate into the wearable treasures she’s known for today.

After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Metals from Wayne State University, Corey moved to San Francisco to study jewelry technology and instantly felt at home in the new city. “I fell in love with the warmth of the San Francisco culture immediately. The people here embrace things made by hand. The shop owners would walk you through their stores personally, showing you their collection,” she says.

After finishing her studies, Corey worked for a series of goldsmiths, galleries, and designers before branching off on her own and creating collections that highlight natural details like the slender veins in leaves and the sharp points of a spine.
