Handmade Jewelry Crafted With Love

Since 1999, Helen has had a love affair with all things beady. With an educational background in natural resources, nature influences much of what she creates. Beads have a long and storied history with humanity, and Helen enjoys making with a variety of materials, including foraged plant material which she dries and encases in resin. Her current passions are these botanical necklaces and wood earrings crafted of sustainably-harvested cork. She also enjoys creating original designs using Les perles par Puca®, Czech glass, and semi-precious stones.

Originality crafted with care

Our jewelry designs all originate from the heart and hands of Helen O’Donnell. You can be sure that you’re buying a unique piece when you buy from us.
