These earrings are nice but the post is too big. It took a lot of trying to even get them in my hole and they hurt to move once I got it in. It's nice to have a post you don't have to worry about breaking but I think it's just going to make me not wear these cute earrings.

About

I'm Heather Zoellner - metalsmith, artist, bookworm, nature lover. I began making jewelry in 2007, mostly self-taught I work in a small studio.

As a child I did my best to feed my insatiable curiosity by reading and exploring everything around me. An observer by nature I was always fascinated by the little things, the details that set things apart (or tie things together) and that generally go unnoticed.

My curious nature eventually brought me to work at an independent import store. I loved discovering the unique character of handmade objects from all over the world. It was then that my affinity for jewelry began. It was quite some time later that my love of pattern, texture and structure finally blossomed into Wild Carrot Studio (any Leo the Late Bloomer fans out there?).

I personally fabricate every piece of jewelry in my home studio – right down to making my own earwires and clasps. I do this because of the unique character it creates, giving my handmade pieces a decidedly organic quality that mass produced jewelry cannot capture (the only components of my jewelry not made by me "from scratch" are beads, cabochons, and commercial chain). My love of nature informs everything I do, so I also strive to run a green studio & most of my silver is recycled/reclaimed.

Inspiration comes from all around me: nature, organic forms, science, architecture, history, found objects. I love making jewelry for what the process gives to me but I also hope that the resulting creative expressions will resonate with others – I like to think of it as a kind of conversation about experiencing the world.

Thank you for supporting handcrafted arts!

    In 2007 I began making handcrafted jewelry as a much needed creative outlet while working towards a degree in Biology. I am drawn to jewelry as a tactile art form and love its unique potential as personal adornment.

The beauty and wonder of the natural world informs my creative senses, recharging and inspiring me. As such I strive to have an eco-friendly studio and shop:

* I utilize methods that reduce or eliminate the use of caustic/toxic chemicals in the studio

* My promotional materials and packaging (including gift boxes and ribbon) are made with a high percentage of recycled or sustainable materials
