The Artist

My name is Teresa, and you are in my Half Street Studio web marketplace featuring my handmade "naturally" beautiful jewelry and clothing. Each piece is created with a unique combination of earthy materials, rustic construction and original expression. Gemstones and minerals are reimagined as jewelry focal pieces set in hand fashioned bronze metal. Upcycled cotton clothing are refashioned by cutting away or stitching on fabrics then whole garment dyed with leaf tannins in an ecoprint like technique. Although I have a specific interest in using regional materials, my creative process is influenced most by my journey with lunar cycle energy, wild craft, resourcefulness and intention to honor the accounts recorded within each natural material.
