made by five and two, a woman owned business based in Fresno, California. more about them in their own words:
five and two is a jewelry collection inspired by the beauty we find in each of our customers. We like to think that we’re dreamers and maybe a little bit hopeless romantic. Our passion for life is mirrored in our handcrafted work. We’re often inspired by the free spirit lifestyle as well as the joy and love that surround us. Ethereal crystals and dainty chains are just a few of our favorite things that remain strong themes in each collection.
