Fascinated by jewelry and design throughout her childhood, Chelsey Bartrum was pursuing a Master’s Degree in Nursing from Yale, when a visit to Chetumal, Mexico, ignited a cathartic, life-changing decision. Inspired by the color and craft of Central America, Bartrum decided to forgo Yale in favor of settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was here where she would begin a longtime apprenticeship with a master goldsmith and a rewarding job at a boutique silversmith’s gallery. A decade later, Bartrum’s extensive jewelry design experience includes a Graduate Gemologist degree from Gemological Institute of America and time spent working alongside with master goldsmiths and designers throughout the United States, including Janis Savitt, Scosha, Loree Rodkin and Pippa Small.
In 2016, Bartrum founded her own line, Starling, a culmination of her years of training and her passion for creating accessible fine jewelry, for everyday wear.
