These were made while enjoying the play of my son outside. I have had to come up with ways to still make jewelry while raising a toddler and being pregnant and this is one of them. Clearing the mind and just observing the play of your child is a beautiful thing. Listening to nature sounds as well while storms roll in is another wonderful sensory experience. These are made from sterling silver with adventurine beads on the ear wires. The finish that you see is achieved by adding a patina and tumbling for many hours to get the soft look. Every marking on my hand stamped pieces is like a brush stroke on a painting to create a picture. The stamps that I use are all custom made by me to create my own original designs. It often takes several separate strikes with multiple stamps to create a picture. All my jewelry is one of a kind and made to provide a sense of comfort and hope for the one wearing it. I put a lot of love into all my pieces and they are each different like the ones wearing them.
