About Chase and Scout Jewelry
As the daughter of an archaeologist, I am naturally drawn to the relics of our past. Ceremonial adornment and regalia from ancient cultures fascinate me and have long been a source of creative inspiration. The aesthetics of the Victorian and Gothic era also resonate deeply and I love to make the two dance together in my work; light with the dark. Within the circle of these muses you will find C&S Jewelry. A romantic nod to antiquity, with a curio style planted firmly in the present.
To me, jewelry is more than pure adornment. C&S collections are handcrafted one of a kind works. Each piece is sacred, and acts as spiritual talisman or protective amulet for the modern day. Every pendant, earring and ring is intended to carry power and weight for the wearer. C&S is more than just jewelry, it’s daily armor for the playful, unusual, and the bold.
Chase and Scout Jewelry was created in 2008 by Elle Greene, and is based entirely out of Austin Texas. All crystals and gemstones are 100% natural and hand-selected. When possible, the silver jewelry is made from reclaimed sterling silver. Chase and Scout pieces are designed with a kindred spirit in mind — a bit of dark, a bit of light— blending ancient symbology, natural objects, and modern design aesthetics. Modern amulets and talismans for your daily armor.
