Our Studio & Process

Studio 

Our mission is to create community and foster connection through the jewelry that we make by hand in our Seattle studio.

Each piece of jewelry is made from start to finish by one of the makers in our studio. We use non-toxic substances and sustainable practices whenever possible. We recycle all of our metal scraps and do our best to ensure our studio and production is safe and environmentally friendly. It's important to us that we are minimally impacting the space around us, and continually work to minimize the amount of waste we create. All of the metals we use are hypoallergenic, lead-free and nickel-free. Learn more about the materials we use here.

Process

We believe that the how is just as important as the what.

We are more than a jewelry brand. Our company culture and the way we do business is just as important to us as the products we offer. We are constantly striving to do better and create the best experience possible for everyone who is a part of Fresh Tangerine. We truly value feedback from our customers and employees and that feedback has helped shape us into the brand we are today. We use our core values and character pillars to help shape the way we interact and engage with those around us.

Our Core Values

Always Be Kind
We aim to treat everyone with kindness and an open mind. Our goal is to cultivate a diverse community of people from all different backgrounds because each individual has a unique story that deserves to be heard.

Inspire and Be Inspired
We live by the phrase “collaboration not competition.” There’s room for everyone to follow their passion, and we want to use our own story to encourage others to take the leap.

Keep Learning and Growing
We believe that every mistake is a learning experience and an opportunity to grow. We’re always asking ourselves “what’s not working” and “what will we do differently next time.” We’re inspired by change and aren’t afraid to take risks in order to move forward.

Create Meaningful Connections
We believe every interaction is an opportunity to connect with someone and to create a unique and positive experience. We love meeting new people, hearing their stories and using our spaces as a gathering place where everyone is welcome.

Work Hard & Have Fun in the Process
We love what we do, and there’s always a lot to do. We try to find joy in whatever it is we’re doing, even if that means finding a playlist to motivate us or giving ourselves a reward after. Work doesn’t always have to feel like work.
