About

Jewelry - organically born, naturally made

It all started one Christmas during my time as a grad student when I decided to make gifts for my family and friends. The wooden jewelry was born out of the desire to keep off-cuts from those gifts out of the waste stream. It started with the pendent necklace and with encouragement from loved ones and strangers, it has since expanded and is now available for sale on Etsy. If it makes people happy, I'm happy to make it.

Originally designed with my loved ones in mind, I wanted the jewelry to be safe and eco-friendly. I continue to use non-toxic adhesive, natural oil finish, wool felt/fabric, 14k gold-filled chain and findings and surgical steel (for those with nickel allergies) and re-purposed wood.

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!
