The Olive Tale • Jewelry from Repurposed Paper

South Bend, Indiana

Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    Studs brought to you by Color Street nail strips! Can I upcycle like a boss or what?!

Now featured in Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine! Spring 2021 edition.

The way The Olive Tale works: I release new earrings every single weekend. I only make one of each pair so they are truly unique. If you want them, grab them before they're gone! Each pair of earrings includes my signature dot piece made from repurposed paper such as greeting cards & all that scrapbook paper I had from when I gave up on that hobby. Lol! Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop!

TheOliveTale • Jewelry & Repurposed Paper: A Love Story • new releases every Friday • repurposed paper is my signature • I love using wood, leather, real gemstones & metal with my repurposed paper pieces that I make by hand • I only make 1 of each pair so no 2 are alike making them truly unique, just like you • I make customs too so message me your wishes & I will make them come true!

With more than ten years of experience as a photographer, I transitioned to found art and jewelry design after getting some time off work for knee surgery at the beginning of 2020. My love of earrings and creative variety has led me to repurpose paper materials in an unconventional way. As an artist with a background in photography, I want to inspire others to see the world and its beauty from diverse perspectives. Dusty boxes of old greeting cards can find new life in the present. Even junk mail can be made into something surprisingly beautiful.

Each of my featherlight pieces showcases recycling and upcycling at its finest and is, most definitely, one of a kind. It is this unique quality that sets The Olive Tale apart from the mass-produced jewelry market and gives each piece a special distinction. The same artistic story is never told twice.

I'm encouraged that you have chosen my piece to adorn your life, knowing that its story will continue through you. I look forward to many more years of inspiring and creating together, as we tell The Olive Tale.

    With many years of experience as a photographer, I transitioned to found art & jewelry design using repurposed paper in an unconventional way. I hope to inspire others to see the world from diverse, and often surprisingly beautiful, perspectives.
