One-of-a-Kind, Wearable Art
Looking for something different? Something natural? Jewelry doesn’t have to be made from hard, cold metal and stone cut from the earth in destructive mines. It doesn’t have to be mass produced to all look the same.
It can be made from warm, organic, renewable sources. It can be lovingly crafted by hand, each piece unique, each piece a small work of art.
I make two types of jewelry using natural materials raised here on the farm. The first type is made from needle felted wool. The other, from hand-carved sheep’s bone.
The photos on this page show just a few examples of my work. To see what is currently available, visit my Etsy shop.
I also do custom orders. Please inquire!
Carved Sheep Bone Jewelry
Bone jewelry is light and luxurious, with a smooth, organic feel that is more comfortable against the skin than either metal or stone.
Each piece of bone jewelry I make is individually hand-carved and polished from natural Icelandic sheep bone, so no two are ever exactly alike.
It is a challenging material to work with, rigid and unforgiving of mistakes. So my designs are very much dictated by the shape and structure of the material. But I love the challenge—and the results!
I like to use simple, flowing patterns to show off the innate beauty of the material. Shapes from nature, as well as Celtic, Pictish, Viking, and other ancient cultures, inspire many of the motifs in my work.
My materials come from my own lovingly raised flock of sheep, and each bone is cleaned naturally by exposure to wind and weather, then briefly sanitized with hydrogen peroxide. No harsh chemicals are used!
All the bone jewelry is
cruelty-free, respectfully harvested from sheep that
died of natural causes,
NOT sheep that were
sent to slaughter.
Ear Tag Earrings
I also make these fun earrings from genuine livestock ear tags, the very same ones we use to identify the lambs on our farm.
