About Misty & J.R.

Misty Brown

Misty Brown is a custom jewelry designer with a passion for creating one-of-a-kind works of art. She holds a BFA in Fine Arts, with a concentration in metals, from Kent State University and 20+ years of jewelry making experience. For nine months of the year, Misty resides in Wilmington, NC, where she has outfitted her garage into a custom studio for her creations. She spends the summer months teaching girls ages 7 to 15 jewelry making at Camp Pinecliffe in Harrison, ME.

Many of Misty’s creations over the years have been inspired by her passion for athletics. After multiple injuries from competitive gymnastics, Misty discovered running and triathlons when she moved to Wilmington. She has completed countless running races and triathlons, but the longer the race, the better for Misty. She has completed 18 full iron distance triathlons, including the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, HI in 2016. She creates custom pieces to help others commemorate their big races and accomplishments, too.

Please feel free to contact her and stop by the studio to visit and help to design your own custom piece if you are ever in Wilmington (or in Maine in the summer).


J.R. is the woodworking half. He has developed a fine craft and set of skills to create products revolving around something we can all raise a glass to, drinking!

He has created wine bottle stoppers, bottle openers and wood signs using different materials and types of wood to accentuate his pieces. Almost all of the woodworking products are customize-able with variations of the wood or request personalized engravings.

These make great gifts for celebrations, holidays or just a great way to welcome in the weekend. J.R. has been crafting pieces for years and recently experimenting with color patterns between woods like oak, ash, cedar, maple and cherry maple which creates a rich dark red color that plays nicely with the lighter colors of some other woods.

If you need a custom order, engraving or large number of these products created please submit a form on our contact page or call J.R. at (910) 599-4561.
