Throw Back Thursday & NEW STOCKIST!

For this week’s Throwback Thursday…

One of my first pieces. Ever. A necklace made from copper, cheap jasper stones, patina, and deer hide I still collect at the local powwow. I still love wearing this piece.

In other news, I’m now stocking items at another shop! Arcana is the first and sole boutique I stock with in my new home town of Portland, ME. Since I’ve changed locations I’ve gotten multiple messages of folks passing through Portland enquiring if my jewels are in any local shops. I’m so happy to have found a great place for my work after residing here for my first year, and just in time for Holiday shoppers. Rune pieces and one of a kind items with turquoise and tiger’s eye are currently stocked. New items will slowly roll in as well…

The Stray Arrow for Free People!

Remember all of that quiet hinting in the past few months? News is on the way…news is on the way…

WELL.

Here it is.

Free People are now carrying one of my signature rings

my Chained in Turquoise Arrow Vane Rings, which they are labeling as

Chained Turquoise Arrow Ring“.

They will be sold both online and in some physical stores, including the shop on 5th Ave. in NYC.

For these rings I curated some top natural turquoise pieces, and each ring has the mine name stamped inside the band for authenticity. Mines include Fox, Blue Moon, Candelaria, Skyline…all high grade succulent pieces. I cannot express the level of excitement I’ve been feeling since Free People reached out to me. It’s because of you reading this, and everyone who has supported me on this path that this could even become a reality instead of some distant dream. It hasn’t been an easy road trying to do what I love full time and make it work. Being the creator and sole runner of a business has it’s downsides, but the reward of not just doing what I love but being able to share it with those who also enjoy it is worth everything. Thank you all for stickin’ with me, giving me support and exposure, and taking a peak into my world of myth, stone, and metals.

Some Art News!

Well, once again it’s been quite awhile since my last post here. I wanted to update folks about an exciting opportunity to acquire not just my jewels but work by local artists from Portland, Maine, where I now live! For those of you that follow me closely you know I have a studio space at The Dooryard Collective. I’m the only jeweler, and others work in mixed media, paint, printmaking, stencil art, installation, and bronze sculpture. I love being among these talented people, and two of them have recently created CSArt, Portland’s first art share program. By purchasing full shares or half shares you can invest in several *surprise* art pieces by different Portland artists for the price of one of my larger pieces of jewelry. Many of these artists are from The Dooryard. The cost is an amazing deal for what you receive, and it’s also a great starter package idea for anyone with bare walls calling to be covered.

Now because this is an art share program, I will be creating *ONE OF A KIND* works for it! This means one of a kind stacking ring or Cave themed ring sets, one of a kind earrings, plus keychains, rings, or leather necklaces for fellas. This is an opportunity to not only score some mystery pieces from me, but invest in some great talent for the price of one of my statement pieces.

You can check out the other artists participating here:

New Item Preview

These new pieces will be hitting the shop throughout the day and this evening!

Things have been a bit slow in the studio for various reasons. Now that the icy shores I’ve recently planted myself on are starting to show signs of life again, so will the shops! I’ll be finishing up commissions (don’t I always say that?), and creating more items for BOTH shops. YES, that means plugs too!

For now, here are new offerings:
