Handmade goods + plunder from the urban wilds of St. Louis, Missouri
Made the hard way – by hand.
Each Fable & Lore piece is crafted in small batches from scratch by one pair of hands, right here in our sunny home studio in St. Louis, Missouri. Using traditional metalsmithing techniques such as sawing, hammering, and soldering, we hand-fabricate and assemble every piece with the utmost care.
We don't outsource any of our processes. We take pride in our craft and do everything in-house.
Jewelry for the modern free spirit.
We design with a streamlined bohemian aesthetic in mind. Balancing minimalist principles with boldly independent expression, Fable & Lore crafts infinitely wearable jewelry for the modern free spirit.
We believe in slow fashion.
Fable & Lore is a small one-woman business owned and operated by metalsmith/designer Chelsie Hellige. As a former advertising copywriter, Chelsie regularly found herself cranking out work she didn't love. Now, as a full-time maker, she believes in taking time with every design, only producing new pieces that stand the test of time – and can keep a Gemini's interest for more than a couple of days. (Not easy!) In between designs, Chelsie spends countless hours refining her craft, learning new metalsmithing techniques, and sourcing quality materials with a focus on sustainability.
