▼ Foxtail is handmade by Betsy Yates in Downtown Portland, Oregon.

Betsy makes custom engagement rings, memorial jewelry, and small-batch production lines that are often cosmically inspired and have kinetic or interactive aspects.

Her style can be colorful or neutral, finding the place where classy elegance meets playful charm. Inspired by her hand-selected gemstones, she builds around them to create unique, one of a kind designs.

She uses gold, silver, bronze, and precious gemstones. 


A year after graduating with her BFA degree in early 2010, Betsy realized that her happiness depends on a fulfilling creative outlet. So, she joined a communal studio to nurture her creativity. Even though that first studio was just a dirty, freezing industrial warehouse, working there reignited her inner spark and a side-hobby emerged. In late 2011, Foxtail was born.

"When I started up Foxtail, I had no real expectations-- just the stark realization that I needed an outlet for my creativity. What started as a side-hobby eventually evolved into my full-time job, and all these years later I am happy to say that I am doing what I love, and lucky to call it work."
