Announcement    I'm Riin. I'm a jewelry artist, metalsmith, and handspinner. I make eclectic jewelry out of mixed metals, stones, and found objects. And I make handspun yarn. (Sometime the handspun yarn finds its way into the jewelry.) And I do custom spinning.

I've been on a bit of a hiatus since I broke my wrist and then my mom died and my fibromyalgia got really bad. My wrist is mostly healed now, and I changed meds for my fibro so I feel like a human being again instead of a geriatric sloth on tranquilizers, so maybe I can start making jewelry again soon.

In the meantime, I started a second shop for my mom's vintage jewelry and accessories: https://MamaLikedShinyThings.etsy.com

About

Riin, the maker

I’ve been a maker for as long as I can remember. I started doing embroidery when I was 5 or 6, and making clothes for my dolls along with makeshift doll furniture, then graduated to needlepoint and sewing for myself.

Next thing I knew, I was sewing and designing all of my own clothes, making jewelry, and knitting.

I eventually got burned out with sewing (I think it was the quilt that took me three years to make), but making jewelry and knitting remained passions. I learned how to spin my own yarn, and it made me love knitting even more. The yarn I could spin was so beautiful, and it made the simplest sweater absolutely breathtaking!

My jewelry has changed over the years, but certain elements have remained: mixed metals, found objects, whimsy, gemstones. I’ve started using my handspun yarn in some of my jewelry, and I’m really liking the results.

I create because I have to. I can’t not make things. This is what I’m meant to do.

I hope you will find joy and beauty in the things I create. I would love to see you wearing jewelry I’ve made or something you’ve made out of my handspun yarn!

Do you have an idea for a piece of jewelry you’d like me to make for you? Let’s discuss it!

Do you have fiber you’d like me to spin for you? I do custom spinning as well!
