I just adore this stunning piece of art. I get compliments whenever I wear it, people are fascinated with it. Arrived quickly and packaged beautifully with a gorgeous little bonus gift. Thanks so much! Saving for another one soon xx 🙌🏽💗

This ring is GORGEOUS!!! Hadn't had it on for more than an hour before the complimentary oohs and aahs started rolling in. ;o) Seller was great with providing additional information (so fast!) and shipping was really quick too. I'll be wearing this ring a lot... it is a beautifully crafted piece!

About

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she turned into a butterfly...

You know the saying....
Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she turned into a butterfly.
Transformation and change can be really scary, but sometimes you've got to take that leap, and trust that you will land on your feet.

I grew up in Los Angeles, and became a make-up artist in my early 20's. I worked in film and television, and really loved it! But about 3 years ago, I started thinking that I'd like to see what else life had to offer. My family all migrated up to Oregon over the years, and I loved coming to visit, but hated leaving my family. So I decided to do something crazy and follow them up here. I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do to support myself, but I did know I wanted to be close to my family.
I've always made jewelry of some sort since I was young, so I decided to focus on that. My brother makes beautiful hardwood cutting boards. If you would like to see some of his work, his shop is AjjAwood.etsy.com.
He had all these amazing little cutoffs, too pretty for firewood. So I took the pieces and started to create jewelry. It is so much fun to take a scrap of dusty old wood, and turn it into a unique piece of jewelry. Although I still do make-up sometimes, (I will always love make-up!) my focus is creating beautiful unique pieces of wearable art :)
It took a while to feel settled in my new home, but I'm so glad I made the leap!
