Machete's one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces are crafted to feature natural gemstones and minerals sourced from the United States. Many stones are collected from the Pacific Northwest and cut by designer/owner Anna Evans. By sourcing stones domestically and cutting in house, or by other local lapidaries, Machete is able to ensure 100% conflict free and ethically produced stones with a minimal carbon footprint. Every piece is made by Anna in an old barn turned art studio in SE Portland.
Anna has been living in Portland for 15 years and is a graduate from Portland State University with a BA in Business Management. She is a nature enthusiast, rockhound, amateur geologist, happy camper, textile designer, lapidary, and metalsmith.
