Very pretty, different from the norm, and subtle-yet-eye-catching. Arrived very quickly. This is my... third (?) time purchasing from Bird of Virtue & I just want to say her customer service is exemplary. I mentioned an issue I was having w/ some studs I'd purchased a few years ago, that the wood part was detaching from the metal backing (she has since switched glues w/her newer pieces) - all I was expecting was advice on a sturdier adhesive for repair - but she unexpectedly sent me replacement studs and very graciously thanked me for my continuing patronage. So not only does she create genuinely lovely pieces - she truly appreciates her customers!

About

Thought-provoking, intricately detailed, handcrafted jewelry for men and women

I believe that jewelry shouldn’t overpower a person, but rather, should complement your natural confidence and style. My designs are modern yet delicate, elegant with an edge and a point of view, and timely without being trendy. I make things that I would want to wear out and about to an urban picnic on a gorgeous day, to a fabulous party, or to an important work meeting where I want to make an impression.

You can see different aspects of my personality in my work—fresh, funky, chic, quiet. Lately, I’ve been drawn to the variations and warmth of high-quality hardwoods. In addition to using natural woods, my designs feature playful, hand-painted splashes of color—my nod to pop culture and the fun, lighthearted fashion moment we’re living in.

Conceptually, I also draw inspiration from the architecture of geometry and music. Being a musician, I’m fascinated with the mathematical components of music and the patterns that make us feel something when we hear a melody. This fascination with the mathematical, the patterned, and the organic is evident in many of my creations.

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

{ product info }

My jewelry is made of thin layers of hardwood that are hand-painted, veneered to one another, hand-sanded + oiled - creating intricate, three-dimensional works of jewelry. I've always been drawn to the simplicity of geometric shapes, and how shapes relate to one another + I think that's expressed in this new series. I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoy making it!

Please note, due to the natural qualities + varying grain/color of wood, each piece is unique + yours may vary slightly from the one pictured.

These necklaces are delicate, however suitably strong as jewelry. They are not made to be worn in water + prolonged storage in direct sunlight can warp the wood. Please be kind to your jewelry + in return, it is sure to bring you many compliments! If you have any questions or concerns about durability, please message me.

{ production time }

All jewelry is custom made for every order. Typical production time is 3-5 days, though many times, it will be much quicker.
