Amaree & Reese

You've heard me rave about how many creativities there are in Portland. With Love, From PDX showcases some of the best brands in our city through my gifting company. They're all hard at work and I've asked local makers to take some time out to share more about their company so we get to know the makers behind your favorite brands. 

Over the last few years, I've gotten to know Risa Regory as a premier jewelry designer but also as a friend who makes goregous handmade items. I've been fortunate to have her lay hands on jewelry for me and design a custom brass cuff made to celebrate my own spiritual journey.  I wanted you all to get to know her and her lovely company Amaree & Reese. 

Why did you start your own business?

I love jewelry and very much love being my own boss.

Portland's filled with makes and jewelry's a lot fun but really competitive tell me about Amaree & Reese

I'm dedicated to excellent customer service and quality craftsmanship.  In addition, it's important for me to connect with people who wear my jewelry.  I want people to feel amazing wearing my designs and feel just as good in it as I did making it! 

You've raised a family here and have grandchildren what are some of your favorites spots around town?

My favorite spots in Portland are Green Zebra Grocery, Belladonna Beads and I love to walk Alberta, Mississippi, Williams Ave., and Hawthorne to shop local.  That's were the best finds are!
