These are wonderful! It's such a creative idea and I love the design of the carrots now in spring while we are starting our garden. Fast shipping and packaged beautifully. I look forward to ordering more. Thank you!

Unique and beautifully crafted! These earrings were the perfect gift for a perfect friend! Quick delivery, and Lori even gift wrapped them. I highly recommend Wildflower Jewelry!
Wildflower Jewelry: A Story Of Blooming Where You're Planted
I began making jewelry in Fargo, North Dakota when my two girls were 5 and 3. I put my first earrings on recycled cardboard backs, signed my name in a metallic pen and called my work "Out Of My Mind Designs."
Since then, my jewelry has brought me on a journey that has introduced me to incredible friends, new techniques, and never-ending discoveries about our resources. Despite being a military wife and mother, I can bring my jewelry with me anywhere, and it's been a way to connect me to my local community and its resources and people.
As I moved from Fargo to Fort Riley, Kansas, and then to Italy, Minnesota, California, and finally Arizona, I felt that "Out Of My Mind Designs" no longer reflected what my jewelry meant to me. I wanted something sturdy, something grounded, to represent my jewelry. I thought of my favorite things: trees. With roots even deeper than their towering branches, they are what we cling to when the world is falling apart. They're strong and adaptable..
So that's what I became: Wildflower Jewelry. But the name change was one of only a few changes. My earring cards became a cleaner cream-colored card stock with an flower punch, but the rest is roughly the same: I respect the earth in all I do. I still use recycled roofing copper, flashing, aluminum cans, repurposed gift cards, vintage tins with precious stones, and other things I've found in nature, like cactus skeletons and acorn tops.
I am finally where I will set my roots, in Bisbee, Arizona, but the jewelry I send to places I've been across the country is the reminder that Wildflower is a state of mind.

I'm a nature- and animal-lover who has been making jewelry for almost 20 years. Because of my love of nature, I try to incorporate those themes into my work and use reclaimed materials whenever possible. I'm so excited to meet you!
