Meet the Metalsmith

Woodland Metalsmith Kahlia Chase

Meet Kahlia.

Jewelry designer, business owner and creative.

Hi, my name is Kahlia (pro. Ka-lee-ah) Chase.

I’m the artisan metalsmith jewelry designer behind every unique piece of handmade jewelry that attracted you to this site.

All my creations are inspired by nature, and you – my customer. 

I specialize in wire wrapping and modern metalsmithing, working with ethically sourced and eco friendly materials.  I love to work with copper and natural gemstones, as they have great healing properties and are simply gorgeous. 


Metalsmithing Copper Jewelry


I design and create high-quality, unique pieces of jewelry. I sell my creations at various festivals and handmade markets around the greater Pacific Northwest. I also sell my pieces in a select handful of metaphysical shop. You can check out these locations and events here.

Every piece of jewelry is 100% handcrafted by me. I do everything from design and making individual jewelry components like ear wires and clasps. I release small batches of jewelry once or twice a month. I’m passionate about crystals and offering a variety of them in different designs – so that no matter your style (earthy, rustic, natural), you can reap the benefits of their healing properties. 


You can follow shop updates by following my Instagram.


My jewelry making and design process is very involved and usually takes a few weeks to create each small batch. I spend a lot of time on each individual piece and put a lot of care into them as well. It's much different than my previous work, which was macramé and wire wrapping. My main focus now is metalsmithing, which has become a full time career.

Jewelry design is actually a lot of fun for me. It's where the magic begins. I usually spend a decent amount of time drawing my designs. I draw shapes for pendants, cut outs for animals, leaves and other patterns that I use for little accent pieces. I will even draw out where I want my stamps to go. I also go rock hounding for my materials now, and shape and cut the stones myself. This takes extra work but it is totally worth it.


I use various metalsmithing tools and skills to create every piece, such as a jewelers saw, torch, hand files, sand paper, pliers, flux, sheet metal cutters, a Dremel tool, liver of sulfur and steel wool. I will also use hammers, stamps and chasing tools to create the finishing touches of the piece. The list goes on. I have well over 50 tools and materials that I use just to create each piece. I use a few different sheet metals including brass, sterling silver, and of course, copper. I fuse these metals together using a torch and solder.

Gemstones can help to reduce stress, anxiety, and tension in the mind and body. Copper plays an important role in mind, body and spiritual balance.


Whether you are looking for a gift for your wife, daughter, boyfriend or husband, I have a wide range of jewelry. Treating yourself? I have something for you.

My jewelry is truly unique and made to last. 



More About Me

Fly Agaric Mushroom

I design, create, and live in a school bus tiny home. Home for me is the lush rainforest of Washington State in the Pacific Northwest. I live with my partner Ryan and our fur baby, Aspen. 

We named our school bus Bethel and she’s pretty awesome. Learn more about her here.

Skoolie Tiny Home

I have a chiweenie, Aspen, who has been with me since the beginning. We’ve been through it all – relationships, friendships, a car collision, brain surgery and starting my business over many years ago. She’s getting older now but still comes along for hikes and other outdoor adventures with Ryan and me. 

Ryan joined the party in 2016. Since then, we achieved so much together!  We have spent our entire relationship building our school bus tiny home, backpacking, camping, and more recently, buying land in Quilcene, Washington, where we will be moving our tiny home very soon.

I am super passionate about being environmentally conscious. I love hiking, yoga, meditation and rock hounding. Some of my favorite spots to hike are in the Olympic mountains here in WA, very close to our home. I am also a vegetarian, love to garden and grow my own herbs!

Live in my neck of the woods? Where do you like to hike?


I love to chat and connect with my customers, so feel free to shoot me a message in the live chat on my main page! You can also email me via the Contact page. 

Woodland Metalsmith will be moving to the base of the Olympic Mountains this summer. Here I will be even closer to nature! My partner and I have a serene piece of property overlooking wetlands, a lake and the mountains. It's very quaint.
