Launched in 2010, J. Southern Studio is a woman owned and operated, Los Angeles based design house that creates specialized adornment and wellness objects intended to elevate our atmosphere and align with the energies around us.
Each piece of J. Southern Studio jewelry transcends generations, carving the way for memories and stories for those who come after us. Using the lost wax casting method and traditional metal fabrication practices, each piece of jewelry is molded from natural objects or hand-sculpted from wax, then cast in various metals. In the end, the product is a sturdy, substantial piece of adornment, not for the faint of heart. Modern, mystical, unique and timeless, these are pieces that are both relevant and versatile; pieces that continuously reveal our individuality.
Since 2014, our Wellness + Ritual collection is one that, through ceremony and ritual, celebrates our ancient past, awakens our curiosities, and reconnects us to the Earth. Inspired by crystal healing philosophies, candle magic practices, traditional herbal smoke rituals, and the use of aromatherapy and essential oils, each Ritual Kit, Candle, Oil, and Mist are made to encourage manifestation through meditation. The components in our kits, from the Earth born minerals to our soy wax, are thoughtfully, sustainably, and respectfully sourced or cultivated from it's place or people of origin who own small, local farms, private land, or companies based in the United States.
Everything JSS creates is made to order by hand and with love in our downtown Los Angeles workshops. We are proud to happily employ, support, and work with members of the LGBTQ and POC communities. Additionally, a portion of our online sales are donated each month to one of the following nonprofit organizations:
Because we are a very small business, please note that many orders are made-to-order and can take some time to finish. Please see our shop policies page for more details.
