WE HAMMER WITH OUR HEARTS
Welcome to Jammin Hammer! I’m Alyssa, a formally trained metalsmith and gemologist of over 25 years and mother of four amazing children. I’ve had a rich career in jewelry making, selling my creations all over the world. After many years of being in business by myself, something amazing happened that changed everything.
IT’S IN THE WATER
In 2015 my son Jordan (who was 12 at the time) was working on a community service project at his school. He decided to join me in the studio and started making bracelets and donating 100% of his profits to an organization focused on drilling water wells in South Sudan. He aspires to raise enough money to drill an entire water well by the time he graduates high school. He is well on his way!
GIVING BACK CREATIVELY
Jammin Hammer Jewelry was born as a joint effort between Jordan and I to help help him achieve his fundraising goals. My son’s philanthropic ways inspired me to focus on raising money for others with my own jewelry. The mission of our company is to share our jewelry and profits with organizations and causes that are close to our hearts. Every time you purchase something from our company you help us accomplish that goal. Annually we are able to donate thousands of dollars and handmade items to many deserving organizations around the world.
THE FABERGE CONNECTION
Growing up, our family had a close friend who was more like a grandfather to me. He was a traditional, old fashioned jeweler and the tools he used came from his grandfather who learned his skills at the Faberge company in Russia. These extraordinary tools that were handmade over a hundred years ago were handed down to me to carry on the tradition of making beautiful things. I feel so connected to the rich history behind these tools and I love to imagine the amazing things that were created with them so many years ago. I know my son Jordan will one day carry on the tradition and be the fifth generation to use these precious tools. Until then, I’ll keep hammering!
