Parrish Relics are one of a kind and handmade in my one-woman (& two helpful cats) jewelry studio at Frog Hollow. Time and care is spent collecting tiny images that I find inspiring and captivating ~
Clay frames are formed around glass to pay tribute to the beautiful artwork they celebrate! Alchemically hand painted to match the metal components in the chains and findings, they become unique adornments that start conversations and are joyful to wear.
All orders are sent beautifully gift packaged in an organza drawstring bag, along with a care sheet and my favorite mossy tissue paper.
