I am Raïssa Bump. I take great pride in providing you great designed, absolutely original jewelry. From the moment a piece is put on a transformation happens. Its impact on your day will be tangible. Beauty expressed. Compliments noted!

Although my days are often similar, overall each year is very different from the next. I am in my studio most days designing and making jewelry or occasionally working on a commissioned knit piece. I am on the board of Art Jewelry Forum and volunteer on a committee for the Society of North American Goldsmiths. Some weeks I am on the road for an exhibition or teaching a workshop. To get centered and take a break I practice yoga, take a walk on the beach with my boyfriend and dog, or cook a delicious meal. On good days all of that happens and the Beauty is palpable!

A little more:

I grew up in the Hudson Valley region of New York State. Currently I live and work in San Francisco, CA.

I have a BFA in Jewelry & Metalsmithing from Rhode Island School of Design.

I also studied at two different times in Florence, Italy. Once at Alchimia School of Contemporary Jewelry and once at Studio Art Centers International (SACI)
