I love to combine leather with natural elements, vintage components and found objects to create simple, pretty pieces for everyday wear.

I love combining leather with natural elements, vintage components and found objects to create simple statement pieces. I have been handcrafting my own jewelry and home decor for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I collected rocks, twigs, leaves and shells on weekend hikes with my family to create my own jewelry and room decor. In high school, I enrolled in a graphic design program and was aesthetically drawn to the subtleties of random patterns in nature that often complemented the more deliberate human-generated designs. I started collecting broken pieces of jewelry, along with random scraps of leather, metal, fabric and wire, and combining them with natural elements to create jewelry and wall art.

After earning a B.S. in Conservation Biology from the University of Maine in 2001, I began working as an environmental educator in "Downeast" coastal Maine. I took every opportunity to collect pebbles, twigs, and shell fragments along local trails and beaches to incorporate into new creations "someday", when I had more time.

When my husband, Jason, and I were expecting our second child in 2008, I began working from home as a freelance business writer and started investing more time into creating jewelry. With a few leather belts rescued from the local GoodWill, I began creating bracelets and barrettes for myself between writing projects. Encouraged by the many compliments I received, I created a a few pieces as gifts for friends and family. They were a hit! I rented space at a couple of local craft shows, and did fairly well. Though an Etsy enthusiast from the start, it still took me a while to take the plunge and open my own shop here in 2013 (there are just so many amazingly talented artisans creating beautiful things!).

Today I work from my home studio - a dynamic, creative art space shared with my two children, ages 8 and 5, who bring a vibrant and exuberant energy and are often the inspiration for my designs.

I am so excited to have this incredible opportunity to offer some of my inspired creations through Etsy. I hope you will find a piece that you love! If you have a specific idea or design in mind that you don't find here, please contact me. I would love to create a special piece just for you!

Peace, Tracey Gamache, Finn and Rose Designs

***Duty, taxes, and other customs fees charged on internationally shipped packages are the sole responsibility of the buyer.


HOW WILL MY ORDER BE PACKAGED?

Your item(s) will arrive in my signature, environmentally conscious packaging: I carefully wrap each piece in reclaimed tissue paper inside an unbleached, natural waxed-paper bag that's tied with a pretty ribbon leftover from one of my creations. Your order will be shipped inside a manila bubble mailer.

If you have purchased multiple items, I will bag and ship the items together in one envelope unless otherwise requested.
