Little Bean Necklace & Earrings

  This past week my 7 year old grandson came to spend some time with us, and among other things we made this set for his mom. She has always referred to him as her “Little Bean”, so the Green Girl Bean bead was the inspiration for the necklace. He was attracted to a strand… Continue reading Little Bean Necklace & Earrings

Suede, Deerskin Leather and Pendants

Ashley, of Wild Human, made a couple of pendants recently and used some of our suede lacing and deerskin lace to turn them quickly and easily into one-of-a-kind necklaces. The deerskin lacing (which you can see in the necklace below) is new to the shop and is incredibly soft and feels wonderful.
