Parrish Relics are one of a kind and handmade in my one-woman (& two cats) jewelry studio at Frog Hollow.
Semi-Precious stones and minerals are collected for the mysterious powers attributed to them, the beautiful colors and symbolism.
Clay shrine-like frames pay tribute to their Historical use as Amulets.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 stamped recycled pillow boxes or organza bags, along with a care sheet and my favorite mossy tissue paper.
