Black Cloud Metal is a jewelry brand founded in 2019 inspired by the American Southwest. Each piece of jewelry you see here is designed and handcrafted by Jess Cunningham. Earthy stones and precious metal make up the core of her work. Our aim is to focus on the value of handcrafted by creating jewelry in small batches using a slow, intentional process. Hand selected for quality and originality, Black Cloud Metal sources all turquoise stones directly from independent miners and dealers located in the Southwestern United States.
Each piece of jewelry is hand assembled locally in our Nashville studio. The same two hands build each piece from start to finish using hand tools and employing traditional metalworking techniques. It all starts with raw metal, genuine turquoise, and hours of detailed work.
