Announcement    Our brand is a tribute extraordinary around and within us every day. Featuring hand painted, carved, and sculpted pieces inspired by imagination, life, and nature. Hopefully our work can help you when you need a little encouragement. Or, by giving a piece you can inspire someone else.

Sometimes I wear jewelry to help encourage myself to stick up for my rights. That is when I might wear something like the warrior inspired piece. Other days I need some nurturing and I might wear a nice jasper stone, the ultimate nurturing stone.

Two Sisters Creating Jewelry Together

Our love for design and art goes back to childhood. Watching our mother sketch and paint was inspiring. She always encouraged us to be creative. When the world dictated standard horse colors she said, "Horses can be purple."

Growing up on a farm, we both learned to appreciate and be comforted by nature. Some of our best memories are of riding horses through the pasture feeling very free and joyfully swimming at the local reservoir.

As we grew up and moved apart we would always get together to do art and craft projects. Together we work on projects and learn new techniques. We teach each other, share materials and explore new media together.

I, Marjorie, started the shop after Kathy and I had a "why not ?" conversion. Losing one of our sisters was a reminder of how short and precious life is. We both love creating jewelry. So, we decided to share that love with others.

Kathy has loved it since college when she had a metal jewelry class. I learned from my sisters and studied art and design in college. We hope the fun and love we for creating is passed on to you through our designs.

    I love to create art and jewelry in my spare time. I want to create pieces that are personal and remind us to stay grounded, strive to be true to ourselves, and help us stay strong to fight the good fights. Nature both inspires and encourages me.
