Featured Etsy Seller: Persephone’s Place

Southwestern and Native American inspired patterns have always had a cool, close to nature feel.  This spring and summer season we are seeing these patterns pop out in all types of apparel and done in lots of different styles and colors (from neutral to neons).  However, sometimes we just like the look and feel of the real deal . . .

So remember these oh-so-cool earrings from Persephone’s Place that Ash wore last Friday on her Native American inspired shoot?

Native Nights Western Beaded Earrings

Well, we are so in love with Monique’s beaded earrings that we thought we’d share some more of her stuff here on tumblewee!

These "Kimberly Earrings" have a fringe like feel.

Monique’s love for bead work is inspired by her partial Native American Heritage (Lenape Indian) and by what she sees and observes in nature. Being native Arizonians these Native American undertones in her work are what drew us to her shop.

I love the angle of these!

If you ask Monique she’ll tell you that her bead work is incorporated into her philosophy of life and love of nature.

These have a crow feathers look with the iridescent sheen!

Monique told us, “stone magic and earth magic, and a knowledge of mythology and esoteric sciences play a large part in the creation of my pieces. I spend a lot time outdoors hiking with my husband  and looking for stones, studying colors and combinations of colors as they appear in the natural environment.  Many of my pieces are spiritually dedicated to and inspired by mythological ideas and elemental energies.  Because I wish to convey the connection of my jewelry to earth and it’s elementals, I photograph my jewelry in natural environments whenever possible.”

Monique runs a blog: Plutons Gems which is actually devoted to her bead work and similar topics including ethics in the gemstone industry, and ecological mining and environmental issues.  If you’re interested in her work go read up!

So feel a little closer to nature, and a little closer to your style and stop by Persphone’s Place and take a look around!
