Jenny Hoople: Unique, colorful, natural necklaces

In her own words...

"With these necklaces, I celebrate that natural can be colorful and glamorous! I choose knotted silk thread because I like its history, it's more romantic! I choose "natural" materials (stone, bone, wood, shell, silk) because even when altered by human hands and arranged and strung by them, the beauty of the processes that formed them breaks through and dazzles me. Really, these necklaces are so wonderful because they are so much more meaningful than mass-produced jewelry. They are all unique pieces and all designed and hand knotted by yours truly. The best part is, I grow the grey Job's Tears beads right in my own backyard!

I grew up on a farm in Pennsylvania, graduated from college with a bachelor of arts in fine arts and now I live in Wisconsin and work part-time on an organic farm and in a library. I started making these necklaces in July and when I couldn't stop, I decided that I'd better start selling them! It is so fulfilling to have my artistic compulsion be put to productive use."

Thanks Debsparkles! (whose name I assume is Deb?) I really like those bracelet cuffs you've got posted on Etsy! I think when you've got matching cuffs on each wrist or arm, then you're one step closer to being a super hero!
