Thank you for this mysterious owl necklace. Nice and weighty, love the moon cutout and the glistening little gemstone flowering inside, so enigmatic. Well package and received fast, thank you for this great one of piece.

Gorgeous. One went to my best friend and she nearly cried. This is the second time I have purchased from this shop, and these pendants are very well-made and beautiful. The customization option is so great. Everything is gift-wrapped so well as well. I will definitely be back at this shop!

I am SO pleased with my wax seal initial pendant! It arrived in the timeframe specified, and is so beautiful. It's also quite solid/sturdy, and something I can wear with no fear as a mother, the kids/babies can't break it! The seller did a lovely job, and even inscribed something special for me on the back. Since the day I received it I have not taken it off! I've already returned to the shop to buy two more. Don't hesitate to shop here! Jessi is really an artist.

About

Dreaming...

Ever since I can remember, I have been busy making things. Growing up in Northern Wisconsin, my family was very good at using the long, cold winters to stay busy indoors. As I grew older, I found myself dabbling in every type of art I could find, from ceramics and encaustics, to lapidary and tattooing. It wasn't until I found precious metal clay (or PMC) that I finally met a medium that satisfied my desire to create three dimensional art that would last for ages.

Living in a Bavarian-themed town deep in the Cascade mountains of Washington, I am constantly inspired by the European architecture around me. I may not live in the Alps, but the weathered rooftops and cobblestone streets melt together in my mind to create the inspiration for many of my tower creations.

In our busy, hectic world, it's becoming easier and cheaper to buy mass-produced goods made by unknown hands. As much of our society embraces these habits, we are forgetting valuable trades and talents passed down through generations. I seek to create unique and lasting pieces that each tell their own story...in fact I rarely remove the impressions my fingerprints make in the unfired clay, to prove that a human made it, not a machine!

In addition to creating with PMC, I also work as a full time middle school Special Education teacher. My students teach me more about life than I ever imagined, and that each day is precious. Last year I also became a mother to a beautiful baby girl, so life continues to be a learning experience. I am excited to share my love of art and nature with her as she grows!
