About

Curse Woods all started when I desperately wanted to make myself a "Shit Show" necklace. I was feeling a little down, and in an odd way the idea of this necklace was therapeutic for me. While I've made jewelry for years, I had never done laser cut work or worked in graphic design. So after many late nights yelling at my computer, I taught myself how to use Illustrator and designed the pieces I had pictured in my head. And so, Curse Woods was born!

My other jewelry business is Salvage Siren, which I began in 2009. Salvage Siren is all one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces made from recycled, vintage parts.

Care instructions

Remember to remove your piece before washing or jumping in the pool. Just like our brand, wood can get a little warped. 😉

Also, remember to remove your pin/brooch before laundering.

For the longest life of you chain don't keep your piece in the bathroom, due to the humidity.

What inspires Curse Woods?

Curse words of course, but also feminism and pop-culture, with a lot of B and trash cinema thrown in! One of my favorite ways to relax is to watch tv and movies. Both classics, new, and quite a bit of terribly wonderful movies. 

Why words like b*tch and c*nt? 

Firstly, let me state that I'm a feminist and that is very important to my ideals and brand. There is of course many types of, and theories, in the feminism world. One of those often debated issues is the use of words such as bitch and cunt. I believe in empowerment through the reclaiming of these words. Furthermore, I believe that words that have a history of being used to suppress groups of people should only be used by those people they were originally used to suppress.
I personally find power in words like bitch and cunt. One article that goes into some of the reasons I find cunt powerful and sensual can be read here: jezebel.com/5987317/cunt-should-not-be-a-bad-word
