About

Science through Art

My mother is an eccentric, lovingly scatter-brained artist who truly lives through art...so I suppose that art is in my very genes. However, with my life-calling of becoming a biologist underway, I found that there is very little room for the practice of art in the often cut-and-dry world of science --- even though, paradoxically, science can only progress and thrive through the innovative, out-of-the-box problem-solving of it's most creative scientists.

Having been starved for some sort of tangible artistic outlet for so many years, combined with a love of unique jewelry, I decided to begin designing and creating pretty little things inspired by what moves me most - nature. I hope that this endeavor will prove to be a way to connect with like minds and kindred spirits.

I believe in the deep interconnection between art & science, and that by practicing my creative side, I can become a better scientist...and a greater, more fulfilled person overall.

    Nature lover to the extreme - from the oceans, to the land, to the sky...all things fascinate me. I hope that I can share some of this deep fascination and appreciation of the natural world with fellow humans through my nature-inspired jewelry.

Shop policies

Last updated on July 1, 2013
Welcome ! I'm happy that you have found my shop here within the Etsy community. I hope that you find something that speaks to you -- either for yourself or for a special person in your life.

Everything in the shop is designed independently by me and is in large part inspired by nature and la vie bohème. In this theme, I use a wide variety of natural components - seeds, wood, bone, feathers, minerals, quills, and so much more. I always strive for these materials to be sourced responsibly.

Each piece is created mindfully, never rushed, and with careful attention to detail. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and will only send out a finished design that I am proud of, and would wear myself. I also take pride in offering my customers beautiful, independently designed, and handcrafted jewelry using quality and responsibly sourced components - for an honest price.

>> Please message me with any questions, comments, concerns, or constructive critique - all are very much appreciated, and will get an immediate response. My goal is to shape Shop Policies that are open, honest, and positive for both the customer and the business. This is the beauty of the Etsy community! <<
