I absolutely love my earrings! They are very well made and somehow even more gorgeous than they looked in the picture!

I absolutley love these lovely earrings, beautifully crated and thanks so much!
When I was little girl growing up in the woods of New Hampshire, I began collecting objects from the natural world: rocks, pieces of plants, wood, shells, and bones. I continued this habit into my adult life, and also began to collect gemstones and beads, as well as interesting objects I found on the streets and in thrift stores.
Now, I live in rural New Mexico, where there are all kinds of oddities left behind by previous travelers and inhabitants. My walks in the desert reveal bones, old cans, glass, and unusual rocks and pieces of wood.
I've broadened my scavenging to include natural materials from around the world, such as recycled glass beads from Africa that are made from old bottles, and sustainable wooden beads from South America.
I enjoy combining these things in unusual ways to draw out their unexpected, often subtle, natural beauty.
My latest materials come, unbidden, from my post office box. The previous owner subscribed to numerous catalogues. Rather than throw them in the trash, I'm making beads and enjoying the unexpected colors and patterns that emerge when the strips of paper are rolled into different shapes.
If you enjoy the unique and the slightly eccentric, I hope that you'll find something in my shop that calls to you.
My products are designed with the body's sensitivities in mind.
For those who have sensitive skin: unless otherwise noted, my ear wires are sterling silver, sterling silver plated, and gold-filled: substances that are more gentle to the body than 'silver' or 'gold' colored mystery metals, many of which contain nickel, a substance that can produce itchy and irritated skin.
All purchases are mailed in ready to gift wrappings made with recycled materials.
Expedited shipping is available upon request.
I hope you see something you like!
