Tuggle Designs was born of the mutual passion for one-of-a-kind, handcrafted jewelry from husband-and-wife team, Matt and Lauren Tuggle. Their jewelry is a modern take on traditional design, where color and contrast guide the direction of each piece. Inspired by patterns and architecture, they emphasize contrast and negative space. Using traditional handwork, they demonstrate the highest-quality craftsmanship in their bold, yet wearable jewelry.
They believe that more beauty and artistry goes into a piece when it is made by hand, and do not rely on CAD in their process. This makes every piece of jewelry special, intentional, and truly distinctive. They love to work with oxidized sterling silver and rich golds, with a variety of bright gems and diamonds. They believe that finishes are just as important as the design, and incorporate hand engraving, textures, and high polished areas to produce dynamic, compelling works of art.
