gen was founded by Lauren Beacham in 2007, and was a creative outlet after earning her BFA in photography to bring her Polaroids and jewelry together. After 4 years of significant growth, Lauren left her job as a gallery director to run her business full time. Her husband Tyler helps part time, and wonderful studio manager Brittany Elbourn joined the team in summer 2015. They work in a small studio nestled in a tiny mountain town in northwestern Maryland. 



We at yūgen are here to provide excellent customer service, beautiful products, and a welcoming atmosphere. We are here to celebrate the universe with you - its literal beauty, incredible mystery, and the people and places we find as our home within it. And we love hand-crafting these treasures to incorporate into your own beautiful life.
We're positively thrilled to have you.
Welcome to our Universe.
