You will love our newest collection of colorful, one of a kind jewelry- Metal Monk.

Donya Lynn O’Brien is the artist behind, METAL MONK. The Collection pieces she creates are upscale, sterling silver and semi precious – definitely bold colorful statement pieces! They feature beautifully detailed carved sterling castings, carved Japanese vintage glass cabochons, and unusual stone combinations. Some pieces follow a theme like her gorgeous Seascapes group with all sorts of ocean creatures adorned with stones and pearls, or they simply highlight a grouping of vintage cabochons like her show stopping turquoise linear collar. She also creates a “cheap & chic” line playfully names “Pink Monkey”. Taking her vintage finds, Lucite, and reclaimed materials, her best selling “Frida” floral garland necklaces are like a party you can wear! Known for making things out of unique materials, she likes to joke that there was never a yard sale she could pass up.

Afer graduating for the Rhode Island School of design in 1994, she dreamt of having her own collection while designing in NYC. Being a practical single mom, she knew she wanted to have the flexibility of owning her own business, so she could be home for her son, Hudson. She made that a reality in 1998, building the business from the ground up, Donya took the collection door to door. Shortly thereafter, her handcrafted work could be found in galleries & boutiques across the country, and as far away as Japan, and has been featured in major publications such as “In Style” “Lucky” and “Oprah”.

Today Donya enjoys living out on the beautiful North Fork of Long Island in wine country, with her 8yr old son Hudson, and Buster….a very friendly pound puppy. Her store in Greenport has become a local destination, where her fans love to come see her latest creations which she is usually making right in front of them. We love that Donya doesn’t take herself too seriously, and she certainly juggles a lot of hats…single mom, jewelry artist, store owner, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

In A Nutshell

The Giving Keys exists to employ those transitioning out of homelessness to make jewelry out of repurposed keys that get sold and shared around the world. Each key is unique and carries a message like HOPE, STRENGTH, DREAM or COURAGE. When the wearer of the key encounters someone else who needs the message on the key, they give it away and then send us the story of their key being paid forward.

How It All Began

It started with a New York hotel room key. The Giving Keys founder, actress and singer/songwriter, Caitlin Crosby, wore the key as a necklace and had the idea to start engraving old, used keys with inspirational words. Realizing that in a way we are all like these keys – unique, flawed, scarred, and at risk of being discarded – she wanted these keys to have their purpose renewed over and over again. Their message is yours for a time, but once they’ve served their purpose with you, pay it forward to inspire another.

They’re here!!
We are excited to announce that we have been chosen to carry Lokai! This bracelet will be the perfect gift or addition to your own collection.

The name lokai was inspired by the Hawaiian word Lokahi meaning unity and to blend opposites. Lokai is our unique pursuit of finding a mental balance. The founder of Lokai brings a piece of the highest and lowest places in the world, Mt. Everest and The Dead Sea, right to your wrist.

Sometimes you’ve hit a low, Stay Hopeful.
Sometimes you’re on top of the world, Stay Humble.

Find Your Balance. These two key elements are brought together because life is full of cycles, and because we all have our own story of balance to tell.

When you purchase a Lokai, 10% of net profits will be dedicated to giving back to the community through a variety of charitable alliances.

Lokai bracelets are now available at both of our locations.
