Welcome to Barefoot Earth Designs!

The idea for this shop began on a road trip across the American Southwest in the summer of 2016. I took time off from my job as a makeup artist to drive from Southern California to Colorado with some friends, stopping along the way at one of my favorite places on earth - Sedona, Arizona. While perusing the town’s upscale shops, I came across a gorgeous yet very simply designed gemstone necklace that was quite a bit out of my price range. I thought to myself, I can buy this necklace and starve the rest of the trip or I can purchase the raw materials when I get home and custom-design one for myself. As an artist, I chose the latter. That necklace along with hours spent driving through the spectacular beauty of Arizona, Utah and Colorado got my creativity flowing. I began to see inspiration in every mesa, creek and aspen tree and I knew then that I couldn’t possibly stop at just one necklace.

Each Barefoot Earth piece is designed and hand crafted by me. Being self-taught, I am constantly refining my skills and try to keep things fresh by learning new techniques and experimenting with different materials. I love using semiprecious stones (especially turquoise!), wood, bone, shell, glass, clay, copper, silver, leather and other natural components. Many pieces are directly inspired by a particular place, trip or aspect of nature and I often share the stories behind them in their listings.

I chose the name Barefoot Earth Designs because as a child I was ALWAYS barefoot. Even though I lived in the heart of the big city, I loved the feeling of earth against my bare skin… and still do! And yes, I used those very same bare feet as my logo. ☺

I hope you enjoy browsing around my shop. If you have your own idea for a design you would like, I would love to hear from you… custom orders and collaborations are always welcome!

Thank you for visiting Barefoot Earth Designs.
