Hello. I’m Brigitta, the creator and owner of Chestnut and Fig since 2012.
From my one-woman studio in a quaint beach town in southern California, I handcraft a line of distinctive jewelry. For me, an essential part of living is creating. My one-of-a-kind pieces begin in my heart and imagination yet come alive when worn by you.
I place the utmost importance on utilizing only high quality items. I strive to have every piece of jewelry I design to be long lasting, timeless, and beautifully unique. As an artist, I value the innate connection between women. I seek to inspire women to look and feel their absolute best when slipping on my jewelry. I work with only ethically sourced semi-precious gemstones, metals, pearls, and vintage charms and coins. As a lifelong lover of travel, my eyes remain wide open for rare and special trinkets to incorporate into my work.
Yet my greatest hope and vision is that when you select a piece of mine, it evolves into a part of you. That it invokes what you love most about yourself. That it adds just the right bit of allure to any outfit. And that it reflects you so accurately that you chose to treat it as an heirloom, and lovingly hand it down generation after generation.
