Do you have a store?

We try to do our best to make our customers happy! A lot of times we can customize or handcraft our jewelry according to style or size...the best way to find out if this is possible on a particular piece is to phone our studio to discuss your special request. Our studio number is 714-963-6200.
What is Island Cowgirl made of?
Island Cowgirl Jewelry is made from lots of love, a lot of inspiration and a little bit of magic. We hand carve each original design in our studio right here in Huntington Beach, California. It is then cast using the ancient art of lost wax casting. Each piece is comprised of combination of sterling plated, silver filled or sterling silver components. We only use semi-precious stones and recycled metals.
How do I clean or care for my Island Cowgirl Jewelry?
We recommend cleaning our silver jewelry with a soft polishing cloth. We sell them here if you would like to purchase one! Please do not use commercial Silver Dip as it will remove all of the words/details of the piece.
Also please do not wear the our leather pieces in the water. Water can make it age, weaken, discolor and mold. To keep it strong and beautiful it is best if it remains dry.
Why is Island Cowgirl Jewelry so cool?
Because we spend a tremendous amount of time daydreaming and thinking up new inspirational ideas for more jewelry. Also, because each and every piece is made by hand and made to last. We always infuse each and every piece with a little love, a little bohemian ingenuity & a whole lot of magic, which gives it that unique rugged handcrafted jewelry edge.
How cute is your dog?
Oh, we knew you were going to ask this question. He is cute...unbearably cute. Traffic stopping cute. Although, I do catch him practicing in front of the mirror so he has become really, really good at it.
Is that dog on your website a stuffed animal?
No, although many children think he is. He is a real dog actually. An Old English Sheepdog...and his name is Nigel...also known as Nigel-licious. He is part of the Island Cowgirl team. He is very proficient at tearing up boxes, stealing shoes and drawing customers into the store. Also, if your order was packed wrong...we always blame it on him.
