Founded in 2009 and fiercely reimagined in 2014, Jorie Breonn embodies a modern + minimalist aesthetic that strives to both capture and reveal the empowering flow of self expression that lives deep within each and every one of us. Our pieces are intimately imagined and lovingly crafted to represent a unique confluence of good vibes derived from art, fashion and cultural influences.
Jorie Breonn is the brainchild of Jorie Bandauski. A ‘Creative’ to her core, Jorie embraces a free-spirited yet rigorously meticulous approach to jewelry design, toiling over every detail to ensure that each meaningful piece not only looks beautiful but also conveys feeling, evokes emotion and has deep, intrinsic meaning.
Jorie's jewelry has been worn by royalty, style guru Jeannie Mai, actresses Lucy Hale, Joanna Krupa and Alison Sweeney and journalist Ashlan Gorse Cousteau. Jorie Breonn pieces have also appeared on the covers of Maxim, Ladies’ Home Journal, Teen Prom, Linger and Tantalum magazines and was featured on the popular wedding blog 100 Layer Cake.
With a rapidly expanding online following and an ever-growing customer base, Jorie Breonn represents an established, yet up-and-coming brand - a juxtaposition that, in the moment, renders our signature truly unique.
1. Good Vibes
We practice a ‘green light, go for it’ type of decision making across all aspects of our business. It is a beautiful day, we are surrounded by beautiful people, we feel beautiful and want you to feel beautiful as well. You give us good vibes. We simply want to return the favor :)
2. Loyalty + Integrity
We always strive to be honest, trustworthy, respectful and ethical in our actions and endeavor to foster deep, meaningful relationships with our business partners and especially you, our customers. We want to get to know you!
Perseverance presupposes confidence, and we pride ourselves on creating art that exudes a purposely conspicuous sense of self-confidence and determination within those that wear our jewelry.

Jorie Bandauski, Co-founder + Head Creative
Born and raised just outside of Chicago, Jorie Bandauski began designing and producing handmade jewelry when she was in her early teens. Jorie pursued her passion for design and went on to earn an Associate Degree in Fashion Design at FIT and later a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Polimoda in Florence, Italy.
Having lived in both New York and Italy, Jorie spent her most impressionable years thoroughly submerged in the fashion world: she worked for Barami and Demetrios Bridal and apprenticed under European designers Mauro Taliani and Pierre Gerrudi. Jorie also enjoyed the honor of presenting a collection to the Aristocratic Corsini family.
Upon returning to the States, Jorie drew on both her formal education and practical real-world design experience and found her creative outlet in the film industry. While she found her career in Hollywood to be fulfilling, Jorie never stopped designing jewelry in whatever little spare time that she had. Over nearly a decade, she had created many dozen unique pieces for herself that would regularly receive favorable recognition from friends, family and coworkers.
At the encouragement of those around her, Jorie began to leverage her extensive network across both New York and Los Angeles and shortly thereafter her jewelry could be frequently spotted on the small screen, red carpets, magazine covers and the like. Her label, recognized for its lived-in luxe aesthetic of costume and fine jewelry had been born: Jorie Breonn.
