While working as a translator in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Ashley seized a moment of true inspiration that forever altered her path — she followed her heart and created a jewelry brand. As an accomplished traveler, Ashley’s vision was to bring her global experiences to life, infused into her creations. In her own words, “Whether talking about the actual mementos I’ve brought home or all the ways the people of the world have changed my perspective, I wear my travels everyday. This is what I wanted to bring to any woman who wears our jewelry: Even if just a small glimpse of the textures and colors of a different place, she can take a journey wearing our globally inspired designs. That’s the heart of Ashley Schenkein Jewelry Design.”
Ashley’s journey — and indeed, the company’s journey — began in from Jackson Hole but she soon set off on the next chapter of her adventure. Ashley studied metal smithing and stone setting in San Francisco and apprenticed under master artisans in Peru and Argentina before returning to her native Denver, Colorado. Today, between travels to near and far-flung locales, Ashley designs from her studio in Denver.
