Announcement   Welcome to my shop! Thanks for taking time to look around. CURRENT COUPON:

Use the code 30OFF for holiday shopping and enjoy 30% off your entire purchase!


I love all things organic, earthy, and natural. I try to design jewelry pieces that are feminine and girly, but with a rustic twist, that can be worn just about anywhere. You will find a mix of boho chic, yoga inspired, southwestern, and vintage feel pieces in my shop. Some beads have been upcycled from pieces I find at the local thrift shop or flea market, while other gems have been purchased from wonderful ETSY sellers. I find inspiration all over!

All of my work is made with solid metal, unless noted. I try to limit the amount of "processing" my finished pieces have. The brass and copper pieces you see have been hand forged from pure metal, oxidized and purchased by another wonderful ETSY seller. Here is what she writes about her product:

"The brass wire I use is an alloy of copper and zinc and has a beautiful golden hue when it is hand buffed. The wire is not enameled or shiny and has a soft powdery coating called a patina. The patina can be tailored to your tastes by hand buffing with a scotchbrite pad that can be purchased from your local hardware store. You control how light or dark you want the finished piece. Because the patina is delicate, some of it will rub off your fingers while working with the wire. This is natural and to be expected. Some people prefer to lightly buff the wire before beginning their project. I recommend either Renaissance wax or Permalac sealer to seal your projects."

I choose NOT to seal my products with a chemical sealer. Instead I use Unpetroleum Jelly by Alba Botanica. This adds shine and protection without the addition of harsh chemicals. Some people choose to spray coat their pieces, but I have opted not to do that in order to reduce the chemicals used on the piece and in the environment. As noted above, there is not lead in the alloy to make the brass. With that being said, as a natural result of this metal reacting with the skin, there might be a slight residue after wearing. I have noticed this more with the copper that I use, as opposed to the brass that these are made of. However, this is not they typical "green" reaction that cheap jewelry might have in the ear. My skin does this with sterling and gold as well. It washes away easily and is not harmful at all.

Wear these pieces in good health, and enjoy them for years to come! Any other questions, just ask!

About

Turning creativity into visual works of beauty.

What started out as a simple "how to" at a local bead shop, turned into a growing interest in making my own jewelry mixing creativity with the latest fashions and colors. My simple idea has turned into fun way for me to relax, while making simple pieces of art that women from around the world have come to appreciate.
