Germinate is a diverse compilation of handcrafted wearable & functional art in a resonant synthesis of natural, bohemian  & symbolic elements. The collection includes jewelry, textiles, home décor & photography, as well as an apothecary line made from local wildcrafted herbs & organic hand infused oils.

 

All work is handmade from natural, reclaimed, vintage, upcycled, local,

organic, fair trade  & sustainable materials.

 

Germinate illustrates that one can find beauty in simplicity, resourcefulness in items

cast aside, an appreciation of the little details in our surroundings & that functionality, aesthetics & sustainability can co-exist.  Transcending gender & generations, the Germinate aesthetic appeals to those focused on eco-conscious natural living, seeking local, ethically & sustainably made wares, to individuals who surround themselves with functional & wearable art that has meaning & purpose.
