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…
Adding new items to the shop has been slow due to an influx in custom orders and shop orders. These new items will be hitting the shop today with more added tomorrow! * ^This is one of my very first … Continue reading →
NEW to my blog- Throwback Thursdays! Each Thursday I’ll be posting some older pieces or photos for a little nostalgia. For this first one, some pieces back from 2011! ^Natural old stock Royston turquoise ring with cigar band. Commissioned. ^Deep blue … Continue reading →
This weekend was a nice mini break from working. My fella and I had a pleasant hike to a new place for both of us to visit Portland, Maine’s only natural waterfall (i.e. not man made). The air was crisp, … Continue reading →
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.
with much love and appreciation ((and a decent amount of gleeful squealing))
These new jewels will be added to the shop tonight! A shop I have stocked with for years gave me back some old consignment pieces in exchange for finished wholesale pieces…so you get the first pick! Some of these goodies … Continue reading →
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:
I’d like to announce it’s now the annual MAY SALE! All throughout the month of May in the main Etsy shop enjoy 10% off of your entire order by applying the coupon code: MAYBABY at checkout. The sale will end May 31st at Midnight, and does not apply to custom orders.
A few new items made in between working on custom orders will be added to the shop tonight. Here’s a quick preview:
^Chained rings now made to order with your stone of choice.
Now, a little highlight on rutile & tourmalinated quartz, plus some photo candy:
I also just want to thank everyone for having patience with me while I was sick for several weeks, due to a reaction from some medication. All pending custom orders are still in the works and getting little extras! The Plugs shop will reopen shortly once I’m more caught up with orders.
