Born from a desire for unique, weird, dark, affordable jewelry...

The headline basically sums it up! I've never been very girly, or much of a fan of traditional gold-and-diamonds jewelry: too feminine, too typical, too expensive. The weird, the earthy, the unique...that's always been closer to my heart. Darkroot Designs began when I started making jewelry that I liked looking at and wearing, and on my budget (which was very minimal). It has been a huge learning process, as I've had to discover everything through trial and error. Over the years, I've honed my jewelry making skills and have been creating strange, unique, and (if I do say so myself) beautiful pieces that suit those with alternative tastes. I love what I do, and I'm always learning. As much as possible, I try to recycle and use eco-friendly and/or natural elements in my jewelry; this makes everything more personal to me. I just hope that other people enjoy my work as much as I do!

    I've been plugging away at some art form or another since childhood. In 2012, I began making jewelry. While I make things for others and love doing custom work, each piece is something uniquely me, and no two items will ever be exactly the same.
