Announcement   in·sou·ci·ant
   [in-soo-see-uhnt; Fr. an-soo-syahn] Show IPA
adjective
free from concern, worry, or anxiety; carefree; nonchalant.
Origin:
1820–30; < French, equivalent to in- in-3 + souciant present participle of soucier to worry < Vulgar Latin *sollicītāre, for Latin sollicitāre to disturb; see solicitous
Synonyms
lighthearted, debonair, jaunty, breezy.


Clip Earrings! You don't see them in store, but due to customer requests, they are now available. I can work with you to convert any jewelry design from pierced to clip--all you have to do is ask!

Insouciant Studios is a small jewelry and stone carving company dedicated to pure original designs inspired by nature. I spend a great portion of my time outside in the fresh air--gardening in the dirt, hiking through the woods, along a beach, across the desert, or up a mountain, digging for fossils, basking in the light of the sun, moon, and stars, and gathering inspiration at every turn. I am inspired by colors, textures, shapes, shadows, silhouettes, and sometimes even smells. I then turn those experiences into jewelry that is easy to wear and easy to love--jewelry that transitions from day to night, that is special enough for a big event, but not so precious that it must be locked away and never worn.

Woolpops is the fiber arts division of the business- where I interpret the colors and textures of my time outside (and my time spent with fiber animals) in the forms of prepared fibers, handspun yarn, hand knit items, and thoughtfully crafted spinning and knitting supplies so that you can do the same. A woolpop is wool with color that pops.

I asked Kit to make a custom bridal bracelet for me. I was so impressed with her jewelry making style and I was having trouble finding something at shops that I really connected with. I absolutely love how it turned it. With just a few back and forth conversations, Kit created the bracelet of my dreams and was able to incorporate Amber accent beads which hold special meaning for me as my Grandmother loved Baltic Amber jewelry. Highly recommend insouciant studios!

Earrings arrived and are absolutely beautiful! So, so happy with them- unique and a perfect neutral piece for pairing with fall/winter outfits. Would definitely purchase from insouciant studios again, the jewelry is stunning.

Fantastic sampler, arrived promptly with each sample individually bagged and labeled. I had conversed with the seller regarding Racka wool, which was what I was particularly interested in, and she provided multiple samples of Racka along with lovely samples of several other wools.
