Meet Mariel (she/her)

I started begging for pierced ears at age 5, and when my mother finally relented 7 years later, the obsession began.

I started my apprenticeship in a busy studio in 2008. I took a break for college, but felt myself pulled back to the industry. I started my own studio in order to carry ethically sourced and quality jewelry because I want to support other businesses who also care about where things are sourced and how they are made.

My family, business, and faith fill me with love and joy. I am mom to 3 wild, wonderful little boys. My husband, Max, and I also own SO Fine Jewelry. Max handcrafts gold jewelry for piercing studios and I'm proud to offer his collection in our studio. I cannot wait to serve you in studio!


Mariel is an APP Business Member in good standing and a trauma-informed body piercer.

Meet Jasper (they/them)

Daith piercings are my favorite piercings to perform, along with any piercing where the geometry of the jewelry and the anatomy being pierced are very well fitted.


I became interested in body piercings from a young age. My first few experiences being pierced were less than ideal, and after my first experience with a reputable, compassionate piercer my interest in learning to pierce grew. Creating a comfortable space for clients to express themselves and increase their bodily autonomy is my favorite part of being a piercer. I have been interested in gems and minerals for most of my life so working with fine jewelry every day is a huge added bonus for me!

I love working with an awesome team of people who are focused on offering positive, client focused experiences at Agave in Bloom.


I am also a trauma informed body piercer and I attended the Fakir Intensives Basic course in 2016 and the Fakir Intensives Advanced course in 2018.

Meet Nicole (she/her)

I joined Team Agave, moving from Texas to Oregon, after a guest spot in studio that changed my experience in the industry thanks to the positive environment, supportive leadership, and collaborative atmosphere at Agave in Bloom.


After my time in the military, I found piercing to be a challenging and intriguing new career path. My favorite piercings are flats & faux rooks, but I've also got a keen eye for curation overall. I also love to put flashy jewelry in nostril piercings and stacking pieces together for a unique look. I recently began designing custom chains and dangles to truly offer a one-of-a-kind look for our clients.

Meet Amy (she/her)

Amy is our backbone - the Office Administrator! If you've called the studio, ordered a piece of jewelry, needed help with your appointment, or just had questions, Amy probably saved your day.


Amy joined Team Agave in 2021, helping to organize the extensive fine jewelry collection and get all the offerings online for your at-home shopping convenience.


Without her, we probably wouldn't have such a quick turnaround time on shipping. We wouldn't be able to answer your phone calls or emails as quickly. We certainly couldn't resolve scheduling issues or in store service needs as quickly as we do now, either. We're so grateful Amy is on our team!

Meet Mandy (she/her)

Mandy is our Media Manager, the second "behind the scenes" team member! Mandy joined our team in 2021 to help organize and launch our new website, as well as run the Agave in Bloom Insider group on social media.


She comes to Agave in Bloom with a background in marketing and communications and a CV full of human connection. Mandy helps us keep our social media presence up and going, along with capturing images in studio, sending all those emails, and maintaining the website.


Mandy LOVES using client images and piercing selfies, so share them in our Agave in Bloom VIP group and maybe you'll see yourself on the site someday.


She also has the fewest piercings out of our entire team... and the entire team keeps threatening to change that!
