At one point, making jewelry by hand was a means of survival for Pam Jackson. She was 16 years old and living on the streets, and her knack for creating hippie-chic pieces with nothing but a few donated beads, some free wire, and a borrowed pair of pliers kept food in her mouth until she was eventually able to leave the streets. After 30 years of doing life, working and raising a daughter, Pam decided to pick up her pliers again. Her jewelry now, is an amped up homage to the creations of the 16 year old street kid. She still uses only hand tools, but has changed out the little wooden beads for luscious gemstones and the base metal wire for Sterling Silver and 14k gold fill. Pam’s work is carried in 12 local stores and one in Singapore.
