WonderDustStudio

Charms and talismans for modern life

Old Tuscarora (historical), Nevada

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    Hi Friends! I can't get an electrician until mid-January, so no listings until I get that sorted out.
Very Happy Holidays to all of you!

If you're interested in a video tour of my exhibit, go here- https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/697112710. Thanks - as always, for looking!

Hi Friends,
I have good news, I have two shows coming up this spring. I'll continue to work for WonderDust, but at a slower pace, fitting things in as I make my larger work. I am taking special orders, as long as you're not in a hurry. Thanks to you all, you're the best!


Here's a Tuscarora snapshot -- There are 3 baby magpies in my yard - huge babies that still need their mama to feed them. LOTS of rabbits. You'll see a couple portraits soon. It's been really cold - then really hot, one right after the other. AND we have Marmots, Rock Chuck, Whistle Pigs - fat and cute rodents that used to live at higher elevation, but now they live in town :)

I want to share with you part of my other life. I'm part of the Tuscarora Pottery School, that operates in the warm months in our tiny town. We are kicking off our season with a festival and have nearly full summer classes. You can find out more at tuscarorapottery.com.

Everything in my shop is completely hand made by me. I feel a connection with artisans everywhere and throughout time, happily sitting making the things I love to make.
The natural world, ancient art, and artifacts are inspirations for my charms and beads.

To keep you safe, I do the correct thing by thoroughly washing my hands and disinfecting the area where I pack your orders. Also, I live in a population of about 10 people, so isolation is a usual way of life. Our post office is operating normally, but I feel like the mail, in general, is slower these days. I usually pack your order the day I get it.

I'm happy to take special requests and answer any questions
you might have.

Happy browsing!

About WonderDustStudio

Sales 1,792
On Etsy since 2018

I'm a maker in the high desert, creating charms and talisman for modern life.

I recently returned to my high desert home and studio, after about a decade away.

I like to spend my time walking around, picking up natural and man made artifacts that I take back to the studio to live with me.

I love walking around in nature, as it gives me time to think, mostly about what I want to make. I live in a place that has few people, though once it has many, so it's compelling to imagine what life was like before.

I'm currently getting my studio back up to speed, so making the small things, that you see in my shop is very gratifying, while getting organized for bigger projects down the road.

I am a "fine artist" as well and do installations periodically. If you're interested in seeing some of this work, please check out the photos and links below.

Thanks so much for looking!

    I'm an LA native, who relocated to the high desert. Inspired by ancient artifacts and everything natural, I feel most at home when working with my hands, so the things I make, I do with love.
