I love connecting with businesses that incorporate a few of my favorite things: horses, style and living. Auburn Jewerly is a winning trifecta of just those. A collection of sterling silver, 14k gold, brass, copper and enamel jewelry that can be tailored to your personal interests designed by a talented young woman with ties to Saratoga Springs, NY.
Meet Samantha Auburn Levine, CEO of Auburn Jewelry! Samantha launched her handcrafted jewelry line in 2012. She developed a passion for jewelry making during high school and went on to attend Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY where she minored in jewelry and metals. Following her graduation from Skidmore in 2009, she went to law school while continuing her education for jewelry and metals. Samantha graduated from law school in 2013 and has been designing and handcrafting jewelry full-time ever since.
Auburn Jewelry provides a personalized and unique line of sterling silver, 14k gold, brass, copper and enamel pieces for both men and women. Each piece is custom and made-to-order, which I absolutely love. I think its great that customers are able to work directly with the designer to make a piece of art that truly represents them and/or their particular interests.
Beyond her home-based studio Samantha is quite the animal lover, having ties to… you guessed it: horses! Her first horse as a child, Simon, was a retired thoroughbred racehorse and she has had multiple horses since. Also being a graduate of Skidmore College, I know first-hand how one can’t help but feel connected to the horse culture that exists in Saratoga Springs and that has transcended into Samantha’s work. Recently Auburn Jewelry began a line of horse inspired pieces. In fact, the line is currently being carried at A Silver Breeze in Saratoga! If you’re floating around Downtown Saratoga, make sure to stop by the Broadway location and take a peek at Samantha’s work.

Auburn Jewelry has #CiaratogaStyle written all over it. It not only has two of my fashion addictions, monograms and horses, but Auburn Jewelry’s line also carries products for MEN. Who doesn’t love a personalized gift? Since men can be a challenge to buy for at times, this is a fun way to give something to that special horseplayer in your life.
Here are a few ways I’ve styled my Auburn Jewelry pieces in recent weeks around the City of Angels:
It’s refreshing to see a fellow Skidmore College alum applying our college motto of “Creative Thought Matters” and developing a business doing something they truly have a passion for. Though only in business for a short while, Auburn Jewelry is gaining much recognition, they most recently won Best of Westchester 2015 for Westchester Magazine and have appeared in publications such as The Daily Voice, The Hollywood Reporter, ClintonKelly.com and People Stylewatch. Well done, Sam! Do what you love. I look forward to watching your continued success.
