Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
— Mary Oliver

Buffalo Lucy is Julie Morris. Born and raised on the Canadian prairies, then roamed the Great Plains of the US, followed by a few years of the marine and mountainous beauty of the Canadian West Coast. I now spend my days in the Pacific Northwest Wonderland that is Portland, OR.  I make jewelry to feed my soul and my family. But mostly my soul.

Working with metal and stone is my heart's work. I do it because I love it. I do it because it makes me feel alive. I do it because I can't imagine not doing it.

All of my pieces are made from scratch and many are one of a kind. Every silver and gold component (with a few exceptions, such as some chain) is hand sawed, filed, soldered and finished with love by my own two hands. Each design is born of my own experience and imagination. The creative process for me is much like a birth. There is some of my heart and soul in every piece.

I have available work in the shop section but I also do custom work, so please contact me if you're interested in creating something together. 

Check out my blog for a peek into my daily life and to see how my work (it hardly seems right to call it work!) permeates every other thing I do.
