Sojourn Curiosities specializes in wire wrapped, inspired jewelry. I like to think of my work as part art, part artifact.
To find my sea glass and pottery, I scour the rocky, periwinkle strewn beaches of my local communities, which are rich in shipbuilding heritage, dating back to the Golden Age of Sail.
My stones are from local coastline, and my shells from Maine, and family trips to Florida. All of my antique keys and vintage buttons are sourced from antique dealers and estate sales.
Each piece has a story to tell.
I am a self-taught jewelry artist and nature fanatic, living on the coast of Maine. I share a bright, warm log home with my husband, my son, step-daughter, and our menagerie, and here I am surrounded by beauty.
About 10 years ago, I started out wrapping gemstones like most people, and then I made a twig and vintage button ring, and it kind of just exploded from there. "What piece of nature or history can I wrap next?!"
I find inspiration in skeletal winter trees against sunset skies, lichens, islands, the hues of the sea...Each piece of jewelry I create is a one of a kind expression, which will take you on a journey, to another place or time. I hope to capture the intangible, inspire a sense of wonder with my work.
