BelleEpoch's Profile

About

My work:
All Belle Epoch items are handmade with love and great attention to detail. Every piece must pass my own scrutiny of form, function, design and technique. I am inspired by my travels, colors, the woods, the ocean, and my own desire to deepen my understanding of art & crafts.

I am committed to sustainability & the environment. I buy jewelry components from reputable sources with safe environmental practices, fair trade certifications, and use vintage components often. Many metal components are forged by me. All feathers for clips and earrings come from U.S. farms with happy birds. I hand dye all of the feathers in my studio.

More about me:
Besides the crafting.... I have worked on projects with aims to protect wild birds and forest ecosystems in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Nevada, Indiana, Hawaii, and Costa Rica. Always restless, I am equally at home exploring backcountry wilderness or promoting handmade arts and crafts at events throughout the United States.

I currently live in Washington, DC.

I am a proud member of the Indie Free Spirits Team, which has a lovely blog full of crafty inspiration.

My work, alongside my sister's amazing handmade Alligator Factory scarves, has been sold at the Renegade Craft Fair (Chicago, IL & San Francisco, CA), Crafty Wonderland (Portland, OR), Urban Craft Uprising (Seattle, WA), Crafty Bastards (Washington, DC) and numerous other regional handmade arts and crafts fairs.
