Germinate is a diverse compilation of handcrafted wearable & functional art

in a resonant synthesis of natural, bohemian, vintage  & symbolic elements.

The collection includes jewelry, textiles, home décor & photography,

as well as an apothecary line made from local wildcrafted herbs

& organic hand infused oils.

 

All work is handmade from natural, reclaimed, upcycled,  vintage, local,

organic, fair trade  & sustainable materials.

 

Germinate illustrates that one can find beauty in simplicity, resourcefulness in

items cast aside, an appreciation of the little details in our surroundings & that functionality, aesthetics & sustainability can co-exist.
