Hi, I'm Jill, the hands and spirit of RusticJewel jewelry: http://www.rusticjewel.etsy.com

An intimate encounter with a Scarlet Dragonfly sparked my journey into jewelry making.

Being immersed in nature and learning how to make stuff is a lifelong passion with me. At first I lived in the City and made stuff I couldn't find or afford to pay someone to make for me -- like artwork and furniture and cabinetry and kitchens and bathrooms.

Then I moved into the country and did all that,too, but in the company of birds, bugs, flowers, stars, planets and quirky natural events I couldn't make happen if I tried. Like catching a shot of that real bird perched on a faux pigeon in my Avatar image. Unbelievable!

The spirit of my jewelry was born from a similar "perching" event on a summer afternoon near my pond. A Scarlet Dragonfly landed on my foot and proceeded to use me as its launching/landing pad. Flying around, hunting for bugs, then bringing them "home" to eat. SWEET!

I watched this gossamer beauty in amazement, and admired how lovely my foot looked with this rustic creature attached to it. Natural jewelry. Nature's own Rustic Jewel!

In homage to Scarlet Dragonfly, I strive to design and make jewelry that's both lovely and lively.

Feel-good, spirited adornments!
