There are so many wonderful things to say about Pepino Chick, I don’t know where to begin! First of all, the maker made a pact to live and shop intentionally, which gives so much more value to her handmade pieces. Pepino Chick is driven to create jewelry by her desire to explore and discover the world she lives in. With each piece, she learns more about the minerals of the earth.
The line is heavily influenced by Native American jewelry, the traditional textile crafters in Europe, and the ancient fiber experts of the Aran Islands. And personally, I think Pepino Chick jewelry would make any outfit shine in an instant!
The Continuum necklace pictured above can be yours, how’s that for an early Christmas present? Made with copper, obsidian, jasper and leather, the beautifully subtle combination works perfectly for everyday wear. The obsidian stones, produced through volcanic eruptions, are the pretty pieces of striated black volcanic glass. And for those not familiar with jasper, it’s one of the birthstones for March, and has been used as jewelry for over 2,000 years. Pieces of jasper usually have multiple colors, and here it is used to form the arrows that help give the necklace a Native American feel.
In addition to jasper and the other materials listed, this necklace, according to maker Natalie, is also made with magic, goodness and love. One look at this piece and we couldn’t agree more. Enter below to win this great piece for yourself or to give to a special friend!
