▼ Foxtail is handmade by Betsy Yates in Downtown Portland, Oregon.
Betsy started Foxtail nearly 10 years ago and has been on a self-employed journey ever since. She makes custom engagement rings, memorial jewelry, and small-batch production lines that are often cosmically inspired and have kinetic or interactive aspects.
She uses gold, silver, bronze, and precious gemstones.
"When I started up Foxtail in 2011, I had no real expectations-- just the stark realization that I needed an outlet for my creativity. What started as a side-hobby soon evolved into my full-time job, and now I am happy to say that I am doing what I love, and lucky to call it work."
