Handcrafted jewelry designed to inspire your unique magic™

The Desert Zen Collection


Gail Jessen Designs stands for bold + organic jewelry that not only reminds you of your power, but summons it. 

I see you, wild one. I see the magic only you can bring to this world.

I forge handcrafted talismans designed to inspire that unique magic.

tal·is·man / noun

An object, typically a ring, pendant, or stone, that is
thought to have magical powers and bring good luck.

Each one-of-a-kind piece is designed and made by hand, then released in small-batch collections. I sincerely hope you find your special piece. I also hope it reminds you every day of who you were before the world told you who you should be.   

Stay wild,
Gail Jessen
Creatrix + Metalsmith


My ring is less like jewelry and more like an extension of my body, my self. Gail is a gifted craftsperson and a magic maker.
— Deb in Brooklyn, NY

I love my ring so much, it literally vibrated when I put it on! Gail has the power to hold and shape energy, while leaving room for the new owner to make their magic.
— Brandi in Redlands, CA

Gail makes pure magic. It’s been a really hard year and my ring is bringing me so much joy and peace. It’s more than jewelry.

Desert Zen Collection

“The desert is a natural extension of the inner silence of the body” — Jean Baudrillard.

Patient. Still.

An awe-inspiring display of space and time.

The desert is not for the faint of heart. She will test your limits. She will demand courage and wisdom beyond your linear years. She will also teach you how to come home to yourself.

The Desert Zen Collection honors the stillness our modern society fears.


Gail creates deeply powerful, and gorgeous, talismans. My daughter was not a jewelry lover until this ring, now she says she feels naked without it.
— Kim in Chicago, IL

Hands down one of the best pieces of jewelry that I own. I don’t like mainstream stuff and Gail knows how to work her magic.
— Ada in Holloman, NM
Gail has a major talent with intuitive design. I love the energy of my custom piece and the intention with which she created it.
