Unique handmade jewelry using expertly and ethically sourced gemstones

The Kenzie is a made-to-order piece that begins with a carefully chosen pieces of malachite that are rigorously inspected by a geologist to ensure that they meet our quality standards.  Next, because malachite is a naturally fragile and soft mineral, it is carefully reconstituted, to add strength and a protective layer so that it will be more protected from scratches and future damage, in this phase it is shaped, polished, and drilled. It's then wire wrapped by hand, and strung on a vegan waxed cotton cord; every Kenzie is made by hand in Austin, Texas, USA by our artisans that are paid ethical, living wages.  Before each is sent out, they are inspected again for quality, before being carefully packaged and shipped out.  In crystal healing, Malachite is often referred to as a protective stone, it draws away negative energy from the body and surroundings and helps protect against negative outside influences and relationships.

"After getting my degree in Geology from the University of Texas at Austin, I worked for a few years in the corporate world as a geologist. Doing that I felt like a piece of me faded away every day— I was working long hours doing something that I realized I had no passion for. I didn't feel like I was making a positive impact on the world, there was little opportunity for creative expression, and there were no women in leadership roles for me to look up to. The purpose of me telling you this is not to cast stones nor to condemn my old employer, but to explain that the job was not my path. One day, I woke up with the realization that if I didn't leave soon, I could wake up in 30 years and still be unhappy, wondering "what if". So, I started saving any extra money I could, and in March of 2017, I left that job.


The day I quit, I went back to my apartment and started brainstorming about how I could build a company that...

1) Could change the world for the better and help a lot of people

2) Could incorporate the creative, fashion-loving side of me

3) And could play to my education as a geologist


That’s when ROX was born. The idea was simple:
