VINTAGE SQUARE NAIL NECKLACE
All parts & elements are handmade mindfully, ethically & sustainably.
Each individual component of each art piece is made by transforming natural, reclaimed, vintage, upcycled, found, organic & fair trade materials. Being fully involved in the process, is a fundamental element in all my work, from individually hand forging components, to salvaging discarded items, to sustainably hand collecting raw materials to incorporate into pieces.
Please keep in mind that the finished result may vary slightly from piece to piece. Stones, crystals, feathers, seeds & other natural materials have unique qualities & likewise, may vary.
The nature of the materials used assures each piece unique & truly one of a kind.
From the manner in which things are grown, gathered, harvested & handled, there is embedded energy in what we put in & on our bodies, in that we choose to surround ourselves. When you know your maker, their philosophies & their practices, you understand the vibration infused in your wares, which ultimately influences the way you feel. Supporting handmade cultivates a connection to the maker, to the elements & to the process of creation.
