Bringing effortless, eye catching and earth-friendly jewelry to the marketplace

Jewelry should accentuate your fashion sense, make you feel special and align with your values!

This is the design philosophy that Erica Darlin follows in creating and developing her own unique collection of jewelry. While her background in jewelry spans almost two decades and includes many different techniques and materials, her current focus is on creating one-of-a-kind, earth-friendly pieces.

Her Etsy shop, Deep Blue Notion, takes a fresh look at accessorizing and believes in the idea that people can be environmentally conscious in all aspects of life.

Channeling her passion for all things green, the main components of the jewelry are rolled magazine pages. Each piece is accented with other natural materials including; leather, wood, shells, gemstones, and a variety of metals.

The most recent collection from Deep Blue Notion is the Rendezvous line. This line is inspired by the memorable childhood experience of the artist attending a Mountain Man Rendezvous in Wyoming. The Mountain Man Rendezvous dramatizes the lifestyle of the early explorers and fur trappers of the American West. Often the explorers and fur trappers would carry beads for presents and as a medium of exchange when dealing with Native Americans. These beads had a huge impact on the lives of Native Americans and the bead adornments continue to distinguish them from other cultures for centuries to come.

Deep Blue Notion’s unique necklaces, bracelets and earrings are bold, bright and beautiful. Great on their own or layered with other necklaces, each piece makes a statement.

The collection reflects the earthbound and adventurous lifestyle of its inspiration. The combination of the magazine beads and natural materials results in a highly individualized style. Each piece is a reflection of this sense of rarity and adventure.

Erica is grateful for the opportunity Etsy provides and aligns with the Etsy mission: “We provide a meaningful space for sellers to turn their creative passions into opportunity. We enable buyers to discover unique items made with care. And we treat our employees and our community with respect. We’re here because the world needs less of the same and more of the special.”

Thank you for stopping by!

Welcome to my little shop! I am so inspired by the endlessly unique designs that magazine pages have to offer. Crafting with this medium is also incredibly rewarding because it is eco-friendly! I design, craft, and package all of my products with the highest of care. PLEASE NOTE: My designs contain beads made from paper. I have sealed each bead so that they are water resistant. However, they are NOT completely water proof. No showers, swimming or playing in the rain with these items on! Proper care will ensure a lifetime of enjoyment!
