about us


Work Harden [/wərkˈhardn/]: the process of increasing the strength of metal by permanently changing its shape.

Just as metal becomes stronger the more we work with it, so too do we grow and strengthen as we increasingly meet life's challenges head on. 

Forged & Co was created as a celebration of the trials that lead to our greatest triumphs. The hammered texture featured in our pieces acts as a reminder that we are strong, resilient and beautiful, no matter what challenges come our way.

Founded by Ilana Solomons during the global pandemic of 2020, Forged & Co grew out of a dream to share beautiful jewellery and to create a community that uplifts one another.

Pieces are made with love in downtown Vancouver, BC. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to CMHA BC.
