Founded in 2013, Tiny Fat Bird Jewelry is a handmade, limited-production metal art studio, featuring ready to wear and one of a kind art jewelry pieces made by Studio Jeweler Grace Matsumoto on Whidbey Island, WA. Tiny Fat Bird releases unique monthly collections of handmade jewelry, accompanying an ongoing minimalist collection of gold and silver earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.
Tiny Fat Bird sources all precious metals from Hoover & Strong, a globally recognized source of 100% recycled precious metals & conflict-free diamonds, and is entirely nickel free.
I am inspired by organic shapes & textures to create pieces that are simple & classic, with a feeling of whimsy. I love working with a torch & changing rigid lines of silver & gold into something playful & organic, always keeping a hint of the original symmetry. I’m trying to create work that is minimalist and adaptable to any wardrobe.
