Laser cut goodness

Poiesis Design began while I was in grad school studying landscape architecture. I couldn't help but take advantage of the tools we had access to, and growing up playing and creating in my Dad's wood and metal shop at home gave me a bit of familiarity with designing and making things. Introduce the laser cutter to the mix though, and I knew I was on to something.

Designing jewelry lets me transform the textures, lines and shapes I see around me into clean, crisp, and wearable designs that contrast simple, geometric shapes and patterns with the natural and organic beauty of wood. I am fortunate to live in the mountains surrounded by rivers, rocks, trees, and trails, which inspire me in some fashion every single day. I hope to transform the beauty around me into my work and into something that makes me and who ever enjoys it feel good and inspired. Each piece is unique because of the beautiful grain and color of various woods used, and I really like it that way.

I'm enjoying taking my designs into other forms - cards, cake toppers, art pieces, etc. - and am open to any great ideas or custom projects. As long as I can communicate my style, I'm happy to make anything!

    I began Poiesis Design out of my love for clean, simple creations that make people feel good. I see visions of texture, patterns and shapes that inspire my designs, and love the contrast between these crisp forms and organic materials.

Welcome and thanks for looking! I love creating these unique designs, and even more love sharing them. If you see a pair of earrings you like but would prefer different findings (gold, silver or a different style) I can change them no problem. All of my pieces are made from walnut, cherry, maple or mahogany wood - all beautiful hardwoods with unique grain and coloring characteristics. Each piece of wood is different, and you may see variance in color even within one earring. I simply finish the wood with olive oil after laser cutting, so if they seem dry feel free to add another coat of oil - simple as that! I want to make my jewelry as fun, affordable and of the best quality possible, and I hope you can see that when you receive your first pair!
