About

Modern, yet timeless jewelry inspired by nature and designed for everyday wear. Every piece of jewelry is handmade, mostly using eco-friendly tagua nuts, fiber and metal. Pieces are made in small batches, ensuring attention to quality and detail.

Design, Sourcing & Production

Pieces are all designed by Ashleigh Becker. She loves pieces that can be worn with a variety of styles from jeans and a tee to a cocktail dress. She loves working with tagua because it is a natural material, hand shaped and dyed by artisans in South America. Tagua is light weight, similar in consistency to ivory, easy to wear and versatile, not to mention an easy conversation pieces that offers a fascinating story to tell. Tagua is ethically produced and eco-friendly, providing a sustainable industry to so many artisans.

Metals pieces including chains, wire, clasps and findings are purchased from a company that manufactures in Europe, providing high quality products and labor standards. Brass and silver accent pieces are purchased from a retailer in Canada. We strive to buy materials that are ethically sourced and manufactured. The supply chain matters, people matter, and we want to source materials that allow for safe working conditions and living wages.

All jewelry is made in our studio in Manitowoc, WI. Currently, Ashleigh designs and makes every single piece during naptimes and late night creative sessions.
