Portrait by Jessie Cagliero
A woman swims solo in the ocean.
The water is cold but not chilling on this summer’s night, and the waves cradle her. With each stroke, the swimmer can feel her muscles pumping - strength she has carefully built in her arms, her legs, her core. She is alone but fearless, and she has the confidence that men often take for granted and women are told they can’t have.
For Women, By Woman
Olivia Shih is a woman-run business inspired by women who dare to strike out and make their mark on the world. Made in Oakland, California, each piece of jewelry is hand sculpted to draw out the texture of your life.
As an introvert, Olivia brings a quiet and nuanced approach to jewelry. Each piece of jewelry that comes from her studio is tailor made for soft-spoken people with strong backbones. This world needs more thoughtful and inquisitive humans, and you deserve to have jewelry that speaks to who you are.
At Olivia Shih, we believe in conscious consumption and conscious making. All collections feature eco-friendly and locally sourced materials when possible.
A small portion of each online purchase is donated to a local organization that empowers women to better their lives.
