Adore these little pins; was bought a pair years ago for X-mas, but bobby pins have a tendency to walk off. Was so glad to see them back on Etsy, will be keeping them close...

The beautiful Ashley Rickards wearing my Luminous Gold Tiny Twig Hair Pins, for Seventeen Magazine. The gold is the most popular color in my Tiny Twig collection and sold out quickly during my limited edition re-release, so I decided to restock it.
The first pair of metallic twig bobby pins I made, ten years ago! The Bella Rustica Antique Bronze color is still my personal favorite for their subtle, rustic charm. I still have a few pairs from my limited edition re-release in stock!
Tiny Twig Hair Pins are still available, though they are selling out quickly! Featured here is my best-selling You Choose Mix and Match Set of Three. Photo by RealSimple Magazine.

About

The Woodland Belle Story

Blending a rustic aesthetic with graceful design, my idea of the woodland belle is that of the modern woman filled with sensitivity and acclamation for the natural world. Simply put, a woodland belle is beautiful; a woodland belle is still a girl at heart, with a fire for discovery. She is bright and optimistic; she feels deeply that sublime spiritual truths lay at the heart of all creation.

Each piece in the Woodland Belle collection is designed and created personally by jewelry artist Mai McKemy, who currently works from her studio in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Mai studied fine art and design at Appalachian State University and began crafting jewelry and accessories soon after graduating. From experiencing profound awe and awareness for the beauty of God's creation in her own life, Mai strives to convey this spirit of admiration through her work, expressing classic nature motifs with a fresh sense of wonder.

The Original Tiny Terrarium Collection©

In this collection, the concept of the terrarium is expanded and explored on a miniature scale. Tiny botanical curiosities are encased in glass, each exhibiting a high level of realistic detail. Each delicate flower is carefully handcrafted into a treasured keepsake, making it a meaningful gift for special occasions and loved ones.

The Branch Collection

The Branch collection includes hair accessories and jewelry designs, cast or molded from real specimens picked up on nature walks. Each design is forest-inspired and infused with rustic woodland touches. This collection includes my best-selling hair pins, The Original Tiny Twig Bobby Pins©. (This collection has been discontinued.)

Frequently asked questions

Do you offer custom orders?

While I generally do not accept custom orders, I do allow for certain types of customization, i.e. color changes, etc. Please contact me for more info.

Can I purchase your designs wholesale?

At this time, I am not accepting wholesale orders. I do offer various sales and promotions throughout the year, and I offer a special discount for bridal parties ordering multiple necklaces.

How fragile is the glass? Is it easily breakable?

Certainly, glass is fragile and as such it does require a certain level of mindfulness while wearing and handling the pendant. However, the vial is surprisingly durable and will withstand normal wear and gentle bumps, knocks, and other minor mishaps. If it slips out of your hand and lands on a tile floor or a marble countertop, then yes, it will break.

How do I care for the necklace and pendant?

The chain and vial cap are made of .925 sterling silver or 14kt. gold-fill. I do not recommend submerging any part of the chain and especially the pendant in liquid jewelry cleaner. To polish the chain, rub gently with a jewelry polishing cloth. Remove smudges from the glass pendant with a soft microfiber rag.

Also, as with all hollow glass objects, the inside of the glass may condensate if left in a warm, sunny location. Just remove the necklace to a cool place until condensation clears.

PLEASE NOTE that the pendant is NOT waterproof! While the opening of the vial is sealed against dust and incidental moisture, it will fill with water if submerged while swimming, showering, or bathing. Please take care to remove beforehand.

I see other necklaces like this on Etsy. Why are yours so expensive, and why should I buy yours instead of someone else's?

When I created the first Tiny Terrarium Flower Necklace© in 2011, very few people on Etsy were making anything like them. Each Woodland Belle Tiny Terrarium necklace goes through many tedious stages to become an elegant piece of jewelry. My teardrop glass vials are customized by my husband and sealed with a unique, hand-cast sterling silver cap suited to fit the vials. Each flower is intricately made and formed by hand from paper and ink with great attention to realism and miniature detail. Every chain is custom made to your length specification from the highest quality materials. Competition is inevitable, and many imitations have appeared recently. These are designed to be heirloom quality, and not merely a fashion accessory.
