Valerie Madison is a Black Latina woman in the fine jewelry industry. She designs simple, minimalist, and elegant fine jewelry inspired by classic designs and new ideals. Since jewelry is a reflection of our individual style and can serve as markers of our personal journeys, Valerie designs each piece with style, quality, and durability in mind. Valerie earned her degree in Environmental Science & Resource Management from the University of Washington before discovering her love of jewelry design and has found ways of applying environmental responsibility on this new path. The Valerie Madison Fine Jewelry studio is in a beautifully renovated, century-old, charming building with high ceilings, exposed beams, and is crawling with creeping green vines.
