Founded in 2006, Freshie & Zero studio is located in Nashville, TN where each piece of jewelry is created by "Freshie" Beth Lawrence while her dog Zero sleeps nearby. A Nashville native, Freshie has made jewelry since she can remember, and even sold her work to neighbors and boutiques while still in elementary school! After earning a BFA in Studio Art from Belmont University, she worked in art and craft galleries in Atlanta and Nashville before rekindling her passion for creating jewelry. Mainly drawing inspiration from geometry, she makes each piece with "love and a hammer", using sterling silver and gold-filled wire to create jewelry that is simple and delicately feminine. Freshie travels extensively to promote her jewelry. However, Zero typically stays in the studio dreaming about squirrels and peanut butter.
