Designs that Tell Stories

I'm a homeschooling, running, painting mom from Texas, and I love a good story.

The word "wonder" carries weight in this house. One of the most important things we can do is lead our children to experience the wonder of the world and to wonder about the world. Great questions lead to great thoughts, great conversations, and point to our great God. We do lots of star-gazing and planet-following so my shop also has several galaxy-themed items in honor of that wonder we should all carry with us.

I design special pieces that are meaningful to me. Much of my inspiration comes from stories my kids and I are reading together or maybe a hymn or folk song we are learning. I hope you find something that's meaningful to you, too.

A few years ago, I started reading The Celtic Wonder World by C.L. Thomson and decided to illustrate a couple of the stories. In the process, I relearned how to hand draw Celtic knots and got a little sidetracked. There are several Celtic knot designs included in my inventory because of those wonder tales.

Some pendants are hand drawn or painted, then covered with either glass or resin depending on the material needed. Some designs come from found art that I've taken from boxes of tea! You never know where an idea will come from.

Do you have a favorite quote or book that you'd like to see represented in the shop? PM me to discuss a custom order. Some of my favorite designs came from customers with a great idea.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to work with you on a custom pendant. Some of my favorite designs came from a customer request. Start a convo to get started.

Sizing details

If you need a chain size that is not listed, PM me.

Care instructions

Water is not good for jewelry.

The design on the lockets and pieces covered with resin will be generally water resistant, but should still be removed before showering, swimming, etc.

The designs covered in glass are not water resistant and care should be taken to keep them dry.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Jewelry will be shipped in a decorated kraft box or in an organza bag, depending on availability. In both cases, your jewelry will be ready to enjoy yourself or to give as a gift.

Do your items contain nickel?

The lockets I use are from multiple sources. It is impossible to trace their original origin.
The pendants I currently have, according to my supplier, cannot be guaranteed to be nickel free.

Wholesale availability

Start a convo to talk wholesale. I would be happy to work with you.
