Bronwen Lodato has been making jewelry for as long as she can remember. Her inspiration stems from a life lived in motion. Whether she is stand-up paddling in Phuket, sailing the Tuamotus in search of pearls, or slacklining in the high Sierra, Bronwen is gathering images for jewelry. The colors, textures, and memories of her adventures are reflected in the lively pieces of her collections. Her jewelry is equally lovely worn on a yoga mat, a beach in the South Pacific, or a bistro in Cinque Terre.
Bronwen met Michael Rubovits in the mountains of Oregon while they were instructing wilderness expeditions for Outward Bound. Growing up in the rugged beauty of Colorado and Arizona with educator parents, Michael has always led a life filled with outdoor adventure and cultural travel. Bronwen and Michael teamed up and have spent the last decade working and playing in the wilderness, exploring foreign countries, and successfully navigating the ebb and flow of marriage. After Michael completed his MBA in Sustainable Business, he became the Financial Director for Keep Tahoe Blue. Michael and Bronwen have combined her passion for designing jewelry with his interest in business and in 2008 they launched the Bronwen Jewelry brand. With jewelry production in full swing in January 2011, they welcomed their daughter, Una Jewel, into the world and she proudly wears a Tiny Charm Necklace and Ribbon Wrap Bracelet. The adventure continues!
