The owners of Forge Jewelry Works, Shawn and Rischelle Mikkelson, believe that creating jewelry to express love is not just their job. It’s their passion.
Forge is not a traditional jewelry store. The Provo-based business is as unique as each piece they design. The Mikkelsons take pride in their amazing team of dedicated designers who meet the needs of every customer, whether in person or through their online CONNECT process. Forge considers it an honor to help create treasured designs as unique as their customers’ love stories.
The Mikkelsons have long been valued partners of The Younique Foundation and are sponsors of the 2021 Reclaim Hope Gala.
“Caring for our community, our employees, and every guest we cross paths with is important to us. Giving was always part of the formula and business plan from day one. Our core belief is that we owe every ounce of our success to the communities in which we live and work,” Rischelle said. “At the most basic level, ‘forge’ means forming and creating with fire and metal. We feel that it also expresses forging relationships. The essence of our business is building bridges of love and fostering relationships. Partnering with The Younique Foundation is our honor and a perfect fit for us!”
Forge designed and crafted the pendants given to each survivor who attends the Foundation’s Haven Retreat. The pendant serves as a constant reminder to the survivors of their ability to heal and reclaim hope.
Forge also sponsors the Defend Innocence class, “Dating? Keeping it Safe,” on university campuses to spread awareness about sexual abuse.
