The majority of our jewelry is made-to-order and custom work, made one piece at a time for each customer. My portfolio speaks to the world class materials and innovative designs and construction we've become known for, and our many customer reviews are proof that we are serious about both service and quality. I've been creating body jewelry from natural materials for nearly 15 years, and it's an honor to say that many of my customers have been with us that entire time.
I come to work each day excited to admire and shape beautiful natural materials into wearable objects, and I would be delighted to craft jewelry for you. Safe travels on your body adornment journey!

Inspired by my love for ethnobotany, the study of the human relationship with plants, the Somnia ear weights are a tribute to the history of Papaver somniferum, the opium poppy. This controversial plant has seen ancient ritual and medicinal use, been used as the economic basis for war and the addiction and enslavement of an entire country, and most recently has provided medical science with the single known natural source for lifesaving opiate medications. Follow the story of this beautiful flower from ancient use to the inspiration for our new Somnia ear weights.
A first of its kind, SOMA is a creative body jewelry experiment inviting customer participation and challenging me to write more. I've created this new original ear weight style with a fictional backstory that customers will have the opportunity to help complete.
I am excited about these ear weights because I like heavy jewelry and the spool is one of my favorite styles. I define the spool style as having a smaller than necessary wearing surface and massive flares on both sides. The flares balance the piece front to back and prevent it from falling out. Halfway between a plug an and ear weight, the result is a comfortable and very stable piece of jewelry.
As I design and produce new innovative styles and continue exploring my favorite materials, I find myself creating more one-offs and high end pieces as stock for the website. This has me wanting to expand how we take payments so the initial up-front cost is not a barrier to wearing the materials and styles you love. I'm pleased to say that I have settled on a solution that streamlines the payment process and gives you some flexibility in scheduling payments to fit your lifestyle.Read More
We want you to be happy with your purchase! If you can't wear our jewelry, then we've our wasted precious time and material, and nobody is happy. Contact us immediately about any issues and we'll see what we can do for you.
Our products are shipped sealed in clear plastic, and it's possible view all aspects of the jewelry without opening this plastic. Please examine your jewelry closely. Once you open the plastic, we can no longer accept a return or exchange. No exceptions.
If your jewelry arrives damaged, that's on us.
We will replace (if possible), substitute (with your permission), or refund (last resort) your order.
If your jewelry was made with the wrong specifications, and the specifications you provided meet our sizing guidelines, we'll make it right.
However, we cannot be held responsible for misunderstandings related to size conversions or how to measure wearing length or flare sizes. We provide a size guide on each product page for your convenience.
If your jewelry is not to your liking aesthetically, let's talk.
Please understand that we are working with natural materials that vary in color, pattern, and texture not just between tree to tree or stone to stone, but within the same piece of material. We take detailed product photos, and clearly explain each piece. We encourage you to learn about the materials and styles, and ask any questions you might have. We cannot promise very specific color requests, patterns, etc. If we have not disclosed something, or we come to agree that we have not accurately described what you've purchased, we will work with you to make it right.
We charge a restocking fee on pieces we have made to your specifications. We are open to reducing the restocking fee on returns if you opt for store credit rather than a refund.
For stocked and made-to-order items without custom specifications there is no fee!
For made-to-order items with custom specifications and custom orders cancelled before completion the fee is 20% of the jewelry cost.
The fee for custom specifications and custom orders is because the jewelry was made to fit you specifically, and/or because we have corresponded, booked time in our custom queue, done sketches, cut and prepared materials, etc.
We guarantee our jewelry to be free from manufacturing defects, but we can make no guarantees about materials due to the unpredictability of natural materials. If there is an issue resulting from the production process (workmanship) we'll make it right and repair or replace as necessary.
Once jewelry has been removed from our sealed plastic packaging, we have no control over the storage conditions or handling of your jewelry, and we cannot be held responsible for any damage.
If your jewelry requires basic repairs due to accidental damage, we're happy to work with you to make sure you have something wearable. We will, at our discretion, and at no cost to you, repair by means of sanding, shaping, or polishing to make a piece safe to wear. This may not "fix" aesthetic issues but will remove sharp edges. Shipping both ways is your responsibility.
If your jewelry cannot be repaired, we're happy to work with you on options for replacement.
