Magic Details

Your jolly lawn figurine may stand frozen atop his mushroom stool by day, but once the sun goes down, we know his tiny magical world comes to life. These whimsical mismatched earrings, gilded in 22-karat gold, are a one-way ticket to an enchanted world. Or, at least an enchanted ensemble. The mythical studs are created by Christine Schmidt using an ancient metal-working technique called cloisonné, which involves etching tiny crevices into each pendant, filling them with rich pigments, followed by kiln-firing, sanding, and buffing to expose a vibrant, shiny design. Designed and made in San Francisco.

Christine Schmidt's art career began in primary school when she won a bike in the local grocer's coloring contest (it was red and had ten whole speeds!) After a youth spent on the plains of Kansas City and art school in Washington D.C., she and her boyfriend, Evan, moved west to a little place perched atop windy Bernal Hill in San Francisco. Fueled by too much black tea and public radio shows, she spent nights creating hand-printed cards and gifts. Seeking out local suppliers and working with fine, earth-loving materials, she began honing her line of wares. In 2007, after steeling her nerves, Christine took a box of her goods to some local stores...they placed orders, and Yellow Owl Workshop was born.

Christine's workshop now bustles with a team of hard-working ladies in a sunny Mission district studio. Though it's grown, the workshop's original values of attention to detail, ecological awareness, and premium, American-made materials are evident in every product.
