Jewelry - organically born, naturally made

Roots eco-friendly wooden jewelry by Vanessa Chew Designs was born out of the desire to keep off-cuts from gifts for family, made during Vanessa's time in grad school, out of the waste stream. It has since developed into the collection you see today.

Originally designed with Vanessa's loved ones in mind, Vanessa continues to make each piece of jewelry by hand using wood off-cuts, non-toxic adhesive and waterproof finish, wool fabric, and 14k gold-filled chain and findings (for those with nickel allergies).

Each piece is carefully hand-sanded and oiled to emphasize the natural beauty of the wood. Due to the nature of wood, no two pieces are alike!
