Great work! I urge everyone reading this message to order a pair for yourself too. It is by far the best plugs you can get (anywhere I guess). So what are you waiting for? Go order yourself a tiny bit of space to wear 8)

I am so excited to be able to wear these amazing plugs! If you think that the picture looks cool, just wait until you see them in person! They are definitely my new favorite pair and I can't stop taking them out of my ear and just looking at the design. Also, they are probably the most comfortable pair of acrylic plugs that I have ever worn! I am extremely happy with this purchase and Beth was lovely to work with. I highly recommend her shop and products! :)
Roots and Wings Designs, where earth meets sky.
I'm always looking for beauty. Especially up. Up is a great place to look; sky, clouds, trees, day, night, moon, stars.
I have a desire to work with everything (just ask my husband). I have a sculpture background and I love the concept of portable, wearable art. Merge these and this is where you find me, creating jewelry.
Roots and Wings began in November 2009 with tree ring jewelry. Although I spend a fair amount of time in space now, I still make tree ring jewelry. There is something so mesmerizing about cutting into a branch to find what warmth is inside.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I live to explore the world around me and share it with great company. Great company includes my amazing spouse Chris and 3 awesome dogs: Chaucer, Luna, and Orik.
My philosophy is to have both roots and wings. Stay connected to and remember where you come from - your roots, but have wings to explore the world around. I offer artful designs, mostly rooted in and inspired by nature, however I don't like to limit myself. I enjoy the freedom to explore any idea or concept, to twist it and work through it, approaching it from multiple viewpoints.
Favorite sources of inspiration include:
The natural world and science - especially plants, trees, insects, rock, and space
Fiction - fairy tales, science fiction, fantasy, book characters
Art theory - principles of design and elements of art, form and color being my loves.
Currently I am offering a variety of handcrafted jewelry. I began with tree ring necklaces. No trees are harmed in the making of these, only fallen branches are used. Each piece is unique - no two are alike. The necklaces make the perfect gift for both women and men. I am now branching (haha) out a bit and offering jewelry made from other materials as well. Favorite materials include glass, stone, clay, wood, and metal.
Roots and Wings is a small, single artist owned and operated business, with production currently at about 10 pieces per month. I strongly believe in using handcrafted artisan goods. I hope you enjoy my slice of life, artfully made with love.
