About

Mush Appreciated; Locally Foraged Mushroom Pendants. More process shots to come ♡.

Mush Appreciated is a seasonal pop-up shop dedicated to promoting the wonders of the Fungi Kingdom through jewellery and art.
My work is inspired by the unique qualities and properties of fungi and how they work and interact within their ecosystems. I spend a lot of time in the Coast Salish forests studying, admiring, and collecting specimen. Being in the forest and interacting with various organisms is my favorite part of this process and I am so excited to share this passion with fellow mushroom lovers through my jewellery. Each piece I create is made of real mushrooms and comes with information on the species.
Keeping active in local communities such as the Vancouver Mycological Society ( https://www.vanmyco.org/) and Wilderness Awareness Schools, as well as engaging in Art and Reconciliation workshops, help to inform my practice and assist me to further my knowledge, skills, and understanding of fungi and our incredibly diverse ecosystems. I also draw inspiration and admiration from the rich Indigenous cultures and practices that have existed here on the Northwest Coast of Canada for centuries. With that, I acknowledge that I gather, create, live, and explore on the traditional, ancestral lands of the Musqueam (ʷməθkʷəy̓əm), Squamish (sḵwx̱wú7mesh), and Tsleil-Waututh (sel̓íl̓witulh) Coast Salish Peoples, and am grateful for the sacred traditions of honoring these forests which have been shared with me over my years of doing this work.
The intentions behind Mush Appreciated is that each piece will serve as a physical reminder of how magnificent the fungi kingdom is, and all of the benefits, healing and wisdom they bring to us and our collective environments. I also encourage people to be curious and research their adopted mushrooms to help spread awareness of these sacred organisms.

Please see item descriptions in each listing for more details.

Also big shout out to fellow mushroom appreciator and photographer; Luke Mikler, who beautifully photographed my fungal accessories. Find his wonderful work on instagram @MSHRMS -https://www.instagram.com/mshrms/?hl=en

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

If you have a favorite mushroom or species of fungi I am happy to try to meet your custom requests. However I cannot always guarantee it as my work depends on season and supply.

Care instructions

These pendants are made with quality fine art resin and will stay bright and clear for a long time. For best care practices please try to keep them out of direct sunlight for long periods of time.

Some specimen are also more delicate than others and parts of the mushrooms protrude out of their frames to create eye-catching 3D effects (especially the larger ones), because of this please be cautious and aware of big bear hugs and treat them with tender love and care.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each pendant is packaged in a small recycled-cardboard box and envelope with recycled padding and tissue to protect it on its journey to you. It will also include some information on your mushroom, a fungi fact to get you excited to learn more about mushrooms, and a card. If you wish to have any words included please let me know

*Sorry but I do not gift wrap
