Hi there! Everything I make is handmade by me- starting with a straight piece of wire, a few tools, and my hands. Oh and loads of love and care! And to be honest, LOADS of espresso as well ;)

I love all kinds of mediums. Growing up my mom would have "craft" days with my siblings and I and those are some of my favorite memories.

I always made things off and on but it wasn't until my early 20's that I really got started creating wearable art projects, so to speak. The first necklace I made and listed in my Etsy shop wayyyy way back was a moon pendant that I formed from polymer clay. I still LOVE playing with polymer clay- all of my designs were very nature inspired and I adored them. I got a lot of compliments in person but my Etsy shop really wasn't a success. Haha!

As it usually goes when you dive into the craft world I started playing with all kinds of mediums and techniques. (Hey, this was even before Pinterest!)

I love fabric, felt, yarn (knitting and crocheting) and the main medium I work with now is wire. I look forward to expanding more and more with new skills and techniques. I loooove learning new things and have a serious curiosity about anything and everything from craft techniques to space and time and the theory of relativity. I minored in geology in college and am a huge rock/geology nerd. I love being outside and being one with nature. It's an essential part of my being. I just said "being" a lot. Did you catch that? Haha.

I'm very happy to be running this business full time right now and so happy and grateful to each and every one of my customers and Etsy, who have made this happen.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

State Necklaces:
Mini size- ~.50"
Standard size- ~1.25-1.75"
Please let me know in the notes to seller if you would like a very specific size for the standard version. I can make most states anywhere between 1-2". Just send me a message if you have any questions about sizing :)

Heart Charms

Depending on the listing, by default the mini size will come with OUT a heart while the standard size will come WITH a heart. I'm happy to add a tiny heart charm to the minis as well as leave the heart charm off of the standard size. Just let me know if you have a special request in the notes to seller. Read each listing for additional ordering info specific to that listing :)

Can you make my country/province/lake/island/etc.? What about bracelets?

For sure! If it has a shape, I can make it! Just select "OTHER" from the drop down and in the notes to seller let me know the outline you'd like me to make. Feel free to post a link to an image :)

If you'd like a bracelet instead of a necklace simply let me know in the notes to seller!

Care instructions

Each item will come with care instructions as well as a small polishing cloth the keep the jewelry clean and shiny!

14k gold filled is the easiest to care for, and will rarely require polishing.

Sterling silver by nature will need a bit more TLC, but it's super easy! Just wipe regularly with the small polishing square found at the bottom of the box your jewelry arrives in.

SHIPPING UPGRADES + PROCESSING TIME

Shipping upgrades are available during checkout. Please note that these do not upgrade the processing time unless you contact me prior to or immediately after ordering and I am able to accommodate your request.

PLEASE do not leave time sensitive info in the notes to seller- always always send me a message via Etsy before or after you place your order if you need it to arrive by a certain date. While I can't guarantee delivery dates I can guarantee that I will ship your item by a certain date.

As always, if you are unsure or have any additional questions, send me a message :)

How did you start making these?

Why do I make my State Love necklaces? Here is a little back story...

I started making my custom state necklaces in 2011 after taking 2 back to back road trips across the gorgeous state of California. I had been working on wire earrings while on the trip so I guess wire was on my brain (and in my hands) and on the way home from the second trip I screamed (to myself) "Heeeeeey I'm going to see if I can make the shape of California with wire to wear as a necklace!!"

And so, it began. Then of course, naturally, people started requesting their own states or states they held dear to their heart, and I was certainly happy to oblige!

Wholesale availability

Wholesale prices available for retail shops worldwide. You can find me over on Etsy Wholesale, or I can set up a custom listing for you here. Just shoot me a message!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each necklace comes packaged in a cute little box with a ribbon and paper flower (very rarely these are out of stock), perfect for gift giving!

How to order?

For state necklaces:

Select the state of your choice as well as the size and preference of silver/gold from the drop down boxes.

For the multi-state necklaces be sure to let me know your states of choice in the notes to seller!

For outlines not within the U.S. select "Other" or "Country" from the drop down box and in the notes to seller let me know the outline you'd like me to make!

Please don't leave any time sensitive info in the notes to seller during checkout- always send a message via Etsy for any special time requests!
