Announcement   Organic, Woodland Jewelry, Accessories and Sculpture, Preserved Wild Mushrooms and Bark, Wearable Art and Ornaments. Woodland Gems evolved from my habit of searching for edible mushrooms in the woodlands and grasslands near my home. Walking in the woods, focusing on nature's extraordinary diversity, and enjoying the pleasure of the hunt, I discovered an astonishing array of natural materials so beautiful in their form, color, line, and texture that I could not resist bringing them back to my studio. There I carefully prepared and dried all the materials. A wood hardener and a polycrylic sealer are used to make them maximally durable. The great variety of mushrooms, bark, lichen, seedpods and moss comprise the “gems” with which I work. Their intricate patterning, varied shape and delicate color, in addition to their small scale, inspired intimately scaled constructions. These natural ornaments display a jewel like, unique character.

Woodland Gems offers pendant/pins, stick pins, head ornaments, wall sculpture and vases and holiday ornaments. Each single earring, fascinator, pin,brooch and ornament is “one of a kind” due to the uniqueness of nature’s creations. The jewelry is worn by both men and women of all ages.

Welcome to my shop, Woodland Gems. I forage for the all the “gems” in the woodlands near my studio. I dry and seal wild mushrooms, seed pods and lichen for maximum durability. Please note that because these are natural, organic materials the colors may change with time.
Woodland Gems is my way of sharing my delight in nature’s bounty. I hope you enjoy visiting my shop and thanks for reading my shop policies.
