Love this natural trio of bracelets so similar to the jewelry my ancient grandmas from the Corded Ware Culture would wear! Thank you!

You know that feeling you get when you unexpectedly see a wild animal in everyday life? Like one night, when I was walking my dogs, I saw a fox-a gorgeous red fox, just crossing the street, casual as all get out. That fox took my breath away.
I want to keep a little bit of that feeling of wonder with me as I go about my day.
Every year, I come up with one simple practice that I can weave into my life, and commit to doing it every day for that year. One year, I drew a tarot card each morning.
Another year, I made an Artist’s Trading Card (a mini art piece the size of a baseball card) every day.
One year, when my work life took place in a windowless cubicle 40 hours a week, I chose a practice designed to connect me to the natural world. I decided to wear a piece of wild nature every day.
I began by taking small wild treasures and crafting them into jewelry. I crafted a few pieces of jewelry out of bones and raw stones, and started to wear them. I found the conscious act of choosing to connect myself to nature every day was very powerful.
At the same time, I wanted jewelry that had clean lines, was modern, and gave my outfits a good hit of style.
I began to explore and expand on the idea of wild nature. I used only ethically sourced, renewable materials that were fairly traded. I took metalsmithing classes while honing and refining my aesthetic. At the end of the year, I had found a way to deepen my connection to the natural world with style, and I had created a new jewelry line.
I am a designer, maker and blogger living in Gainesville, Florida. Things that make me inordinately happy: the idea that both chocolate and red wine are good for you, the barking tree frog that hangs out on my bedroom window, chartreuse combined with just about any other color (yellow? cranberry? Swedish blue? Yah!), really cute shoes that turn out to be comfortable, the way my goofy Greyhound tosses her toy lion in the air when she is happy, a vintage dress where the waistline actually hits my waist, the smell of beeswax candles, a chunk of grilled pineapple, a hand painted roadside sign, fabulous ’70′s career lady clothes (see the Mary Tyler Moore show for some prime examples), and finding a new natural material to make jewelry out of.
I'm the mom of two daughters who have unique and very fun styles, and who open my eyes to new ways of seeing.
My amour and I moved in together two years ago. Creating a home together is an exciting creative challenge, but we're up to the task! Our home reflects a combination of things we each brought, combined with things we have collected together, nudging each other in new directions. We live with our animals: Luna, a neurotic geriatric poodle, Sacha, a "retired" racing greyhound rescued from the track, and Tux, who is one cool cat. We also have a dozen fish that swim in our pond, and about 30,000 bees. We got married last March right here in our living room, surrounded by the people we love, in a ceremony we created ourselves.
I like to cook, to garden, to thrift, and to explore nature and the small towns here in North Central Florida.
