About

Beyond the Meadow...

Jessica Masiker (the mama of this mother and daughter team) has been designing and making jewelry and art for years for her brand, The Vintage Angel. Her daughter Julia is a high school student, accomplished young bassoonist and can now add handmade jewelry artist to that list...

--------------------------------------------------
"I collect very old books. I purchased a hardbound history book from the 1800's and was delighted to discover very old pressed flowers and leaves within its pages. That was the first glimmer of this idea to create pressed flower jewelry. I began to research the best ways to press and preserve wild flowers. I then began the tedious task of learning to work with resin. Ralph Waldo Emerson said "Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience." Well that is surely true of resin as well. I learned how to work with it and how to wait and trust the process. I learned how to best press and preserve the blooms and foliage I work with. And I learned to love flowers even more.

My daughter Julia, although busy as a blossoming musician and high school student, was fascinated with what I was doing. She became inspired to create a line of glass orb terrarium necklaces with her favorite gilded bright gold accenting, adding tiny preserved and dyed blooms inside glass orbs. She also had the brilliant idea of adding 24 karat gold flakes to the mix, adding shimmer and enchantment to her miniature meadowscapes.

We now enjoy foraging in the meadows and beyond near our NW Ohio home and creating together in the studio. Soon, our friend Johna Gibson-Bowman (she thought of our lovely brand name, The Pickled Posey) will be joining us with her own pressed flower gifts and treasures."
