Announcement   Ethical, Passionate, and Eco-aware. Hand Made Stationery and Jewelry - Individually Crafted in the USA using Fine and Recycled Silver. ALL our cards and envelopes are 100% recycled; EVERY BLESSED FIBER.

FoxFern Jewelry is built from scratch using raw materials, sheet sterling, USA Made Chains, Fine Silver, Recycled Automotive Silver and PMC. I hand cut, sculpt and form each work of art; and they take several hours to finish.

Our cards feature early career, second career and young budding artists to help develop their portfolio, provide financial support and secure a long term relationship with the arts. The greeting cards are printed in small batches, then cut, folded and packed by hand in the middle of the night. (By a magical, insomniac, artist; me.)

Everything FoxFern is a deeply personal connection to the work with good vibes and best intentions for the person who will someday own (or share) the art.

Updates

The heart is like the moon, it can stir oceans of emotions and wouldn't be as beautiful without its scars.
Each piece is hand cut, carved, carefully assembled and trimmed. This stage is a very delicate first part of the long, but wonderful, process. (A budding romance.)

About

Just call me Fern.

My name is Jennifern, but my friends call me "Fern". I hug trees, talk to insects, reuse paper cups, compost and respect the Earth as much as I respect people. I am an autodidactic artist living in Warwick, NY with my toddler son, partner and a menagerie of animals. I have had a long career in Business Development and Graphic Design, but spend much of my free time working on art. Every item in this shop is designed and handmade by me, (Fern) in our Warwick, NY Studio.

The Dream:
I started working on art full-time, so I could sell my works and make contributions to the community and those that could use a helping hand. I wanted to be in charge of where materials come from, if they are ethically sourced, and have minimal impact on the environment. Our papers are 100% Recycled and US manufactured, as are our packaging and trims. (Please see Ethics notes below.) Our metals are US manufactured and our PMC metal contains silver recycled from the automotive and electronic industry.

Like many artisans, I have been selling paintings, illustrations and greeting cards in for years, in person and at art fairs. Many of my first works were penned on lunch breaks, or late at night after working a full time job. ALL of my artwork is now created during "The Night Shift" (when my toddler sleeps), which starts at about 9pm and often goes into early morning. The back of FoxFern cards say; "Made with caffeine and midnight oil."

Why Jewelry?
I am not a jeweler, but an artist using silver to make strong, beautiful, wearable art. I started designing and making jewelry because I could not find pieces for my collection. I have a quirky style as free spirit and identify with the unusual. I designed an anatomical heart with my babies initials on it, which I was delighted with. What I did not expect were all the compliments on how unique it was, and before I knew it, I was making anatomical hearts for people I never thought would love the design. As a creative person, the ideas for pendants just filled my notebooks and I lost sleep dreaming about my next piece.

The GOAL:
The long term goal for FoxFern is to help provide affordable or free learning resources, a paid working environment and a support community for other artists.
