Liberatus Jewelry was founded in January of 2016 by VCUarts Alum and Richmond native, Ginny Crane. She makes versatile handmade jewelry & men's accessories. Her timeless yet modern and simple designs are hand-cut in recycled sterling silver, brass, and copper and are easy to dress up for work or a formal event or down for everyday wear. These effortless pieces are styles you’ll love to live in. Creating sustainable designs through ethical studio practices is something she strives for. Many of her designs are inspired by the “throwaways” of her other pieces, allowing organic shapes to occur and virtually no material to go to waste. Her goal is to create goods that do good. Available products include trendy chokers, stackable rings, stud and drop earrings, layer-able necklaces, as well as men’s tie bars and money clips. There’s something for everyone!
"I love my art because it isn’t for walls. These pieces of me are made for others. For us—you and I both. I’m in the file scratches on the edges, in the fingerprints I leave when I take it from my bench. It’s for you to wear down, to ding and scratch and make your own as it molds to your body and becomes a part of who you are just as a tattered old swing becomes part of its tree."
