Who We Are
Bloedstone is run by husband and wife duo, Cody & Christine Howell.
Cody's route to design was inadvertent, starting with a genuine love for two raw materials: stone & silver. Throughout his life Cody has picked up rocks wherever he travels: serpentine in Big Sur, sandstone at the Grand Canyon, terrazzo on the beaches of southern Italy. Small mementos of treasured memories. He's worn a simple silver ring for the past fifteen years, a piece that’s been with him since childhood. A piece of jewelry that has aged with him. In 2016 Cody began stone cutting and silversmithing, and from that the idea for Bloedstone began to form.
Christine is a sculptor by trade, jewelry designer by accident. She started her jewelry label Dear Survivor in 2015 with her $800 tax return and a hell of a lot of blind ambition. Six years later and she’s traded her early materials of clay and leather for gold and diamonds. Christine is deeply passionate about doing good through the consumer market. Through Dear Survivor, she has been able to donate over $50,000 to the fight against human trafficking through her partnership with Generate Hope, and she's excited to see what environmental good can be achieved through Bloedstone.
