Check Out Jillian Schall’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jillian Schall.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I have always used art-making as a creative outlet my entire life. My mother and grandfather were artists, so growing up they had a major influence on my artistic journey.

Fire and Honey Jewelry is a small, handmade jewelry collection designed in Southern California. I started Fire and Honey Jewelry in 2015, by making bronze rings, using the lost wax casting process. With a degree in Art History and a background in sculpture and painting, I take inspiration from minimalist and contemporary art. I strive to design enduring and unique pieces for everyday use and enjoyment with longevity and simplicity in mind.

I aim for Fire and Honey Jewelry to be sustainable as much as possible. I focus on working with genuine and ethical manufactures. Most collections are made-to-order to ensure there is no overbuying or wasting of materials.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has not been an easy journey running a business. My mother passed away when I was only 18, so she never watched me grow into an adult and start my jewelry business. As I stated earlier, she definitely left her artistic influence on me and having her gone has been hard in many ways. I started selling my bronze pieces on Etsy when I was still in college with no intention of creating my own business or brand. However, it did grow naturally into what Fire and Honey Jewelry is today. I would say that the growth is steady, but not exponential. I face the typical challenges in running a business, as it is just me working on F&HJ. I am a mother of two boys that are still very young, so my time is mostly focused on them. Balancing the many roles I have especially a mother and the owner of Fire and Honey Jewelry, is the most difficult part in this journey. Nonetheless, I take it day by day and work on putting time in for F&HJ to grow.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
These days, I mostly handcraft and assemble jewelry pieces. Back in the day, F&HJ was handmade bronze rings, which took a lot of time. I gradually moved on to creating jewelry that didn’t require as much time and resources. Fire and Honey Jewelry is known for gold-filled pieces that are enduring and unique pieces for everyday use. I strive to use materials, like gold-filled and sterling silver, that are sustainable and that will last for years (with proper care!). I am proud of F&HJ being a brand of inclusivity, quality jewelry pieces and service.
