Love my new earrings! Look awesome with the ring I previously bought.
Organic Nature Inspired Wedding Rings and other things! EcoFriendly and Made to Order
I am a full time artist and loving it! I specialize in organic style wedding bands using 100% recycled metal. I make other jewelry as well a variety of other artistic mediums. I love to paint, though rarely have the time for it! When I can find the time, I do a little screen printing, make note cards, knit and whatever else seems fun and interesting. I'm also a yoga teacher!
I have a fabulous studio full of tools I've been collecting over the past few years. I suppose "tool collecting" could be considered a hobby! I like to think of it as a need :)
I graduated from the Univ. of GA in 2003 with a degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing and am so happy I've been able to make it my "job".
I stay busy doing mostly wedding rings and throw in a few other pieces now and then. I don't currently have any employees, but I think about it often. Between answering emails, photographing work, creating new listings, the blog, fb, twitter and various social networking postings, packing and shipping? actually creating the work? Sometimes I wish I had a clone. I will have an intern for a short time this summer, so who knows, maybe it'll develop in to something!
I love what I do though and take pride not only in my work, but in the service I am able to provide to all the happy and in love clients I have! I like to think that its not just a ring that I'm selling, but a little piece of beauty and happiness. It comes from a place of love to a home where it will be loved.
Trees are my favorite, though nature in general is extraordinarily inspiring. There are so many amazing textures and elements. Its fun to do research and learn about so many different aspects of the world around us. I'm constantly thinking of new ideas of wedding rings. Pinterest inspiration boards are so fabulous!
And, because nature is so important to me, I make sure that all the metal I use is 100% recycled. I order exclusively from Hoover and Strong - a wonderful company that cares about the environment. You can read more about their Harmony metals if you're interested - https://beta.hooverandstrong.com/harmony
I donate to a number of organizations through the year (sierra club, habitat for humanity, npr), but make a monthly donation to greenpeace. i'm making some changes to my business this summer and hope to add a few more charities to my monthly roster.
All of my ring designs are customizable and available in just about any metal, width or thickness. And if you have a nature theme you'd like made in to a ring, just ask!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
My standard timeline is around 4 - 6 weeks. During busier periods or for more custom orders, the timeline may be longer. This does not include shipping time. My current timeline is listed in my announcement or individual item.
Ring sizes available 1 - 16 including 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 sizes. I have ring sizers available if you do not know your size. Wide rings fit differently than very narrow rings. Fingers also change size, by season and also throughout the day! Fit can also be a personal preference - some like a tighter fit, while others prefer something looser, just not so loose to fall off.
If you have questions about finding the right fit, just ask! I don't have enough space to include my full instructions for sizing.
