About DancingLoonStudios

On Etsy since 2011

Dancing Loon Studios brings nature to you when you can't get away from the house or office.

In 2011 I was a stay at home mom with two kids ages 2 and 7. As much as I like being available for my kids, I also felt the need to actually FINISH something (because laundry, dishes and cooking is a never ending cycle). So, I picked up the beads and book I had bought years before and started playing with them. It was fun AND I could finish a project and feel a sense of accomplishment. But I didn't need the worlds supply of jewelry, I needed to get it into other people's hands. So, I did some research and decided I could handle a small business from home. Dancing Loon Jewelry was born. I opened an Etsy shop and did a few craft fairs and let the business slowly grow.
At the same time, I was also working on learning to be a nature photographer. I love to get outside and experience the world. When I have the camera in my hands the world disappears except for what I'm looking at through the viewfinder. I need that solitude and focus as much as I need to make something with my hands. Over the years I have spent a lot of time learning and practicing both crafts and love them both. Now I am in the process of tying the two together. I am designing jewelry that features my photography.
I know how isolated and disconnected people can feel when working in an office (especially one without a window), or how trapped moms can feel when they are home with little kids and just want a break. When I worked in offices I always covered my walls with pictures I had taken outside. I hope people will want to connect with the outside world by hanging my pictures on their walls or by wearing my jewelry and being able to see and touch some of the beautiful places I've discovered.

Thank you for shopping at Dancing Loon Jewelry. My jewelry is lightly feminine, and inspired by nature and the stones and metal I use in my designs. I hope you get as much enjoyment out of wearing or gifting my designs as I had making them.
