I saw my friend Jenny wearing these and was so enamored by them I had to get some too.. It was important to me to know how these teeth were sourced and I bought them not only because of the awesome artistry, but also the sustainable and ethical sourcing. Thanks!

About

One of a kind, sustainable sculpture and jewelry showcasing the convergence of natural and industrial worlds

A New England native, Johanna Sprague is an artist currently living in Berkeley, California. A life-long creator, she studied fashion and business at FIT while living in Brooklyn. During those 5 years she became increasingly engaged in the environmental issues caused by manufacturing and production while finding herself drawn to the rustic and natural landscapes throughout Europe and to the rugged coasts of Northern California and Nova Scotia; all of which ultimately became the catalysts for her current work. The Nomad Collection is the amalgamation of inspiration and relics derived from her local and worldly travels.

Her primary materials of choice are antique & vintage metals with perfectly aged patinas, delicate bone, raw stones such as turquoise and agate, rusty tools, and sculptural driftwood. Over years of searching, storing, cleaning, sanding, and manipulating, her one of a kind, sustainable sculptures and jewelry take shape as she converges refined and ordinary elements of the natural and industrial worlds, delivering an unexpected elegance with the abundance of resources that surround us daily. Her thought provoking work engages the viewer to consider a deeper relationship with nature, art, consumption, and the balance we all need to find within it.

In gratitude to the earth, she donates 5% of all sales from The Nomad Collection to the Natural Resources Defense Council.
