Terra Rustica Jewelry Signature style
Wabi-Sabi, simply, is to find beauty in rustic simplicity, imperfection, and broken things.
Terra Rustica Jewelry was founded on the belief that every woman is magnificent and beautiful in her own unique way, especially in her most vulnerable and broken places.
Inspiration for our collection comes from wanting you to recognize your beauty, that you know your own magnificence, and that you embrace your Wabi-Sabi.
Journey to authenticity
It takes courage and confidence to show up and be who we truly are. When we are authentic, we acknowledge our imperfections, love all of our self, including the broken pieces, and are able to give back and make the world a better place. As a jewelry designer, I find the act of being authentic incredibly inspirational. I aspire to create designs that will take on a life of their own and tell the story of one’s sacred path to authenticity and become cherished heirlooms.
Where possible Terra Rustica Jewelry uses recycled metals and responsibly sourced stones. We also use recycled packaging for most of our branding materials. Terra Rustica Jewelry believes that it is possible to create jewelry that is both environmentally friendly, as well as luxurious and beautiful.
About the designer
When I was a young girl, I loved to adventure in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. My friends and I would explore the hidden depths of caves, catch tiny creatures at the bottom of streams, and collect crystals and rocks until the sun would go down. That was the beginning of my love affair with the natural world. I went on to study and then work as an Interior Designer, where I incorporated my love of earthy colors and rich textures into my designs. I had always dreamed of owning my own business. So, in 2011 I started Terra Rustica Design, with the intent to be an Interior Design consultant and to develop my own sustainable product line using a unique sandblasting technique. A jewelry home party changed everything! I fell in love with a stone pendant necklace and realized I could sandblast my own custom designs onto pendants as a way to express myself and share my love of the natural world. I then took metalsmith classes and studied all I could on Jewelry design. I now combine both vocations to create unique wearable pieces of sculptural art.
