About

What's in a Name?

Many of the sculptures and jewelry I create are based on organic forms or inspired by reclaimed materials. I am infinitely inspired by nature, its forms, textures, it's fighting spirit and our ties to it. I named my shop after the sensitive fern or bead fern, Onoclea (On-oh-clee-uh) Sensibilus as a tribute to the fragility and inherent strength found in nature and because this plant in particular fascinates me.

Along with inspiring my designs, my focus on nature has inspired me to work towards sustainable and environmentally friendly practices in my studio, using many reclaimed, recycled and sustainable natural materials. I am constantly learning new methods and processes that help make my studio more environmentally friendly and will continue to be sensitive to my impact.

I am a high school art teacher by day, I work in the basement studio that I share with my husband by night and I exhibit my art and jewelry as much as I am able. I have been working with and exhibiting works in metal, glass and ceramic for over ten years but teaching has taught me to work with a variety of materials so you'll find a lot more than that in my shop.

Check out the Onoclea Studios Facebook page, follow me, @cjdinunzio on Instagram or check out the blog to see what's happening in the studio or where my travels have taken me! Hopefully I'll have posted something new by then for you!

Frequently asked questions

Can I personalize a piece of jewelry with engraving or lettering?

I have letter stamps in a typewriter style font in two different sizes that I can use to monogram or add custom lettering to many of my jewelry pieces. Additional cost is dependent on the amount of text desired. Any other type of engraving is sent out and subject to charges from the company doing the engraving. Message me for details or specific questions.
