In addition to our in-house filigree designs, we also build custom one-of-a-kind pieces by special reservation. Whether you’re envisioning vintage-inspired earrings, a gorgeous necklace, or stunning custom wedding rings, we make jewelry for all occasions — from “just because,” to “just married!”

Hisako Yamada

himePortrait_square_smBorn in Hiroshima, Japan, near the beautiful island of Miyajima, Hisako Yamada loved crafting finely detailed works of art from a young age. Many years later, she discovered the western art of filigree jewelry, and the two have been inseparable ever since. After moving to Portland, Oregon, she began Laceworks Jewelry with Peter as a way to share her handmade creations with the world.

Peter ChordasPeter grew up all over the West Coast of the U.S., studying a wide range of subjects from classical literature to computer programming. This disparate blend of art and science eventually led him to Portland State University where he met Hisako. As a storyteller/designer, Peter became captivated by the beauty of Hisako’s work immediately. His writing, design, and web programming skills make Laceworks Jewelry possible.
