About me

A very moody shot of my carving bench.

A very moody shot of my carving bench.

My name is Cheyenne Weil and I’m a full-time jeweler/designer out of Portland, Oregon. I specialize in custom-designed and hand-carved rings out of 100% recycled metals. My personal style tends to gravitate toward natural and botanical motifs, with hints at Art Nouveau and Art Deco. I did not study or train to make jewelry, however; rather, I got a really useful degree in History and Russian(!). It was a solid four years, but quite honestly, I probably should have majored in Art. (When’s the last time you heard someone say that?) I *never* imagined that I would end up doing art for a living, yet here I am. It makes me happy just typing that!

I have been making jewelry, in some fashion, for over 20 years, and selling officially through Etsy and elsewhere since 2010. I’m the sole owner, designer, wax carver, metal manipulator, polisher, stone setter, photographer, blog-poster, email-answerer, packager, and podcast jockey at Studio Cheyenne. Mostly I work via online, but I do now have a few of my pieces showing in a shop downtown Portland called French Quarter, if you ever find yourself in the area.

    I just stumbled upon your work and I am stunned into silence. I have never been much for jewelry, and I certainly haven’t been actually moved by any pieces until I came across yours. My husband and I have talked about replacing our not-so-special-but-right-price wedding rings when we have a little bit more disposable income, but I haven’t actually looked forward to it until now. Anywho, your work is just simply incredible and I want to follow it, so I hope you don’t mind if I add your blog to my blog’s list of blogs/blogroll.
    Cherrio,

GORGEOUS!!!!i was searching tree themed rings because I love the book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstien and that ring is beautiful. I will definitely be visiting your Etsy shop and I hooe you create more like the tree landscape!

    Please contact me. I really like your rings and was thinking you might be able to design a ring that was stolen from me. It was given to me by my grandfather when I was a little girl. Had it resized to wear as an adult. Missing it fiercely. Would love to get in touch to discuss. Thanks.
