Wax seal jewelry and other odd art bits
Renata started out making found object jewelry and her discovery of precious metal clay opened up a world of creative possibilities and helped her find her ultimate passion. She primarily works with fine silver. She started making wax seal pendants based on her love of history. As their popularity grew, she branched out with an ever growing collection of antique wax seal stamps, intaglio glass gems and making her own molds from original antique wax seals and historical treasures. Renata is a Rio-certified PMC instructor. She received it under the guidance of Christopher Darway. She is also a member of PMC Guild and contributor to Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine. The most important tools are her hands! She likes her work to show signs of the maker - nothing too clean or too perfect. Her handmade process is part of the product. She always prefers to find eco-friendly, reclaimed materials. The possibilities of transforming a lump of metal clay into something beautiful and precious keeps her inspired.She wants to make jewelry with content, pieces that would be intimate and symbolic to the wearer. She loves art, a good cup of tea, ocean and horses!
Jonathan produces mixed media illustrations of hand drawn sketches and digital painting techniques. Each is signed and dated and printed on the finest watercolor paper available. He prepares all the product photography (which Renata shoots), writes the product descriptions, handles the shipping and social media aspects of the business. He also has a collection of his own royalty free art on Digital Art Downloads here on Etsy. You can visit his other shop at this link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DigitalArtDownloads/

About Our Jewelry
Renata is greatly inspired with the natural world. Creating tiny terrarium worlds of hand made mushrooms and moss, tiny cottages of clay, all reminiscent of her childhood adventures in Europe. Her shadow box pendants of exotic paper butterflies are a favorite of mine along with the rescued vintage lace pendants she makes from glass and solders together her self.
Renata primarily works with fine silver, bronze and sterling silver materials. She started making wax seal pendants based on her love of history.
We also try hard to be as eco–friendly as possible.
Please note that the essence of a handmade product is that it doesn't look machine made.
About Our Artwork
Well that would be me now, yikes!!! All the work you see is hand drawn in pencil, scanned and then finished either in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator or a combination thereof. Digital art is my big passion. I love the textures I can create and the utter freedom and endless possibilities working in this environment. For those interested, you can visit our blog as I sometimes post in-depth looks into the creative process of the artwork itself.
My original prints vary in image size but are small so you can easily mat and frame them for your home. All prints are hand signed and dated in pencil and printed archival Hahnemühle watercolor paper designed for maximized image quality and durability.
