Hello,

My name is Trevor LePenske and I am founder and artist of Trevor LePenske Jewelry. My partner, Eden Oleson, and I work together as a team to create and market our handcrafted jewelry. All of our work is made at our home in Laguna Beach, California or at one of the few local art shows that we enjoy participating in. I began making jewelry when I was 18 years old when my Grandfather, Earl Reid, taught me how to weld. Since then, jewelry has become my passion and my own small business after I graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 2016. We have participated in many art shows and events including; Laguna Beach Art Walk, Laguna Beach Craft Guild, Raw Art Orange County, Shelter Cove’s Trade Fair, and the Aliso Viejo Holiday Craft Fair. I am also a featured artist for the past three years and Board Member at the Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival and Winter Fantasy. For more information on any of our upcoming shows please visit our “Find Us” page.

Each piece of our jewelry is made individually by myself, making each one an original. We pride ourselves on producing quality, long lasting handcrafted jewelry for everyone. Much of my jewelry is inspired by the two beautiful coastlines of Shelter Cove and Laguna Beach, California, where I was born and raised. The designs we create include both elements of nature and geometric shapes in classic and modern forms.

Thank you for supporting our business and we hope you enjoy our art! If you have any questions about us, our jewelry, or upcoming shows please contact us here.

Sincerely,

Trevor LePenske and Eden Oleson


How are each of our pieces made?

I make every piece of jewelry by welding, hammering, and manipulating bronze rod into different shapes and placements. Once I have finished welding my desired hair pick, barrette, ring, or earring design, I sand them until they are comfortably smooth. Then, I electroplate each piece with either 14 Karat Gold, 14 Karat Rose Gold or Rhodium Platinum (silver color without the tarnish). Because of this process, each design is slightly different, making no two pieces exactly the same.
