What a shop!! These pieces are amazing! The shop put a lot of love and care into each one of their pieces, all of which are created by hand. They also take great care with their packaging giving them a already prewrapped look. You would be able to get that special someone an amazing piece and hand it right to them when it arrives because her pieces are so well packaged.
They use stone beads, glass beads, clay and ceramics to put together these great creations. All one of a kind creations that make any wardrobe just pop. If there are any other jewelry wearers like me who love stone work, this is a great place to shop. My favorite piece is the picture frame looking pendant that looks like an obsidian painting. So pretty..
Astro started the shop a year ago as a New Year Resolution and it has completely transformed her life for the better. She is a 27 year old educator from Portland and for her day job she teaches English classes to grades 3-12. She enjoys working with her students and making her jewelry for the same reason: both let her be her and express my “whimsy without judgement.” I have no judgement at all on her jewelry. The quality and care each piece has is spectacular and her ability to create such complicated and stunning pieces is just wonderful.
Astro does try to support other Etsy sellers by buying their materials for her jewelry whenever possible allowing other creatives to also flourish. I would like to see if we can team up some of you to help all of your sales grow, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you think you have pieces Astro would like.
I really do love the pieces you send Astro, thank you so much for sending them. If anyone is still looking for a nice piece for Valentines Day, this is a great place to go!
