Our Story

Clay by Shay Jewelry started in Banks, a small river town in the mountains of Idaho. Our company is woman-owned and operated. Our founder, Shay Woodhouse, potter, painter, and designer, has a passion for wild places and a devotion to sustainability. Shay’s designs are colorful, reflective of nature, inclusive, and timeless. With resiliency embedded in each design, our jewelry is loved by the most extreme athletes such as whitewater kayakers, cyclists, surfers, and rock climbers.

Using stoneware, porcelain and earthenware clay, our designs are naturally waterproof, durable, and plastic-free. Clay By Shay offers an adventure-proof promise, guaranteeing the life of each piece of jewelry we make, reducing waste through free repairs and offering peace of mind that our jewelry is truly made to last lifetimes.
