Pennyroyal Jewelry is a Hermosa Beach design studio, specializing in handcrafted jewelry and accessories for men and women.
Pennyroyal was founded in 2006 when designer, Tim Foster, hammered a penny into a crude shape, to make a simple necklace for his girlfriend. For the following year, Tim studied various jewelry design techniques, and released Pennyroyal's first collection of sterling silver necklaces, inspired by his previous career in the music industry, and newly found passion for metalwork and organic textures.
Over the next decade, Pennyroyal released over a dozen capsule collections, inspired by a wide variety of interests including music, miniature sculpture, the Sierra Nevada mountains, the ocean, space, and the Fibonacci sequence.

In addition to regular capsule collection releases, a passion for music and philanthropy gave rise to an ongoing series of design collaborations with a growing list of artists. Charitable contributions from these releases have raised over $350,000 to date, for causes such as MusiCares, Trevor Project, Donors Choose, Jewel's Project Clean Water, The Cesar Millan Foundation, Autism Speaks... and many more.
In 2016, Pennyroyal Studio LLC launched a product design company called waxoffdesign, creating premium quality custom collectibles for a unique wholesale client base. Visit www.waxoffdesign.com to learn more.
