For a while I have had my eye on Erin Considine's amazing and unique jewelry {I adore the necklace on the left of the 6th photo from the top}. She uses ethically sourced silk and cotton, then hand dyes it using the natural pigment found in marigold, onion skins, turmeric, hibiscus, madder root and other plants and spices, which is what gives each piece their muted and beautiful colors. Then she weaves the yarn using complicated and sometimes ancient techniques, while also incorporating cast charms and clasps made from repurposed and recycled metals such as brass. A perfect mix of earthy and modern.
