Inspiration behind the new collection

Curious about the inspiration behind our new collection of handmade wax cast jewelry designs? I've compiled some of the source imagery that I was referencing while making each piece to give you a little window into the jewelry design process. As a vintage and antique jewelry lover and dealer these new designs are antique inspired with a deep appreciate for timeless, symbolic jewelry of the past. I hope you enjoy this little window into my jewelry obsessed brain (haha) and hope you love the new pieces as much as I do! xoxo
