faerwear is inspired by many things:
predominantly nature, travel (of the nomadic sort), transformational festival fashion, earth-based spirituality, ancestry, waste reduction, and yes, of course, faeries – hence, ‘faer wear’. I have been designing jewelry for over 20 years, and some of the materials I use come from a collection just as old.
All the leather that I use is 100% recycled. The silver that I use is also recycled (if you have even further questions about the materials I use, the FAQ is a great place to start, too). I am an avid “junk sifter”, constantly on the lookout for stuff to keep out of landfills.
I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from making things at the moment, but you can see my designs on Instagram. I am the originator of the shape and cut (this page was first published on August 25, 2016!) but as is typical with Etsy, it has since been copied *sigh* – regardless, I hope to resume making again this summer now that we are settling into a new place on the east coast where I am going to school.
