Original Hardware was borne of the idea that we can truly live original lives-if we just take the leap. Company founder and designer, Carrie Schafer, took the leap by leaving the corporate world to follow her passion of stones and metals. Carrie’s designs are inspired by her love for travel to far-away places and the cultures that call them home. Original Hardware designs feature stones from conflict-free areas and ethically sourced materials, reflecting the company’s mission to do right by people and the planet. The line is handcrafted entirely in the USA by a team of passionate artisans and designed for the journey, wherever it may take you.
