I ordered the pearl bracelets for my bridesmaids. Said they were to be shipped out May 18 and still haven't received them. Very disappointed :(

Have you received them yet? They were shipped overnight last week. It took the mateirals 6 weeks to arrive to our location, and the order was completed as quickly as possible.

One-of-a-kind Works for a One-of-a-kind Cause

The shop is a collaboration of artists, artisans, and photographers working towards the goal of funding climate change education projects in the US and Guatemala. It was started by me in 2008, an extension from the business I started when I was 18 and partially paying for college by selling my work through other artists. I started drawing and painting when I was 6, and making jewelry when I was 14. A family friend taught me Native American style beadwork, and I was hooked.

The shop name, Haunted Fox, is the spirit name I chose for myself when I was working as an environmental educator in Pennsylvania, and the name stuck and is used by my closest friends.

I find inspiration almost everywhere, and my gift, I am told, is working especially with color in my own works. I work in mosaic, jewelry, and painting. You are likely to find found objects, gemstone, shell, metal, silver, clay, glass, and pearl in my works. All are made to last, and I enjoy doing custom orders for people. All of the designs I use are my own.

My associates each have their own style. Chris likes to do Native styled jewelry, and is an excellent creative close-up photographer. Ramon has an eye for capturing intimate moments and small details in the pueblos and landscapes of his Guatemalan home. Elvis is an immensely talented fine artist who experiments with styles and genres to create landscapes and portraits. Maria uses color combinations and designs found in Mayan clothing to generate unique jewelry designs of her own.

All sales from Haunted Fox Jewelry and design support the artists and activities of Alticultura, my organization that helps indigenous Mayans adapt to climate change pressures that threaten their culture and land. I am happy to answer any and all inquiries related to our work.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you bookmark us if you like what you see.
