PRODUCT STORY
Dean says: My unique jewelry is handmade, inspired by the voices within the wood. I learned at a young age to see the small things in nature, and what better way to share with you what I see, than through using the organic refuse of our society to bring to you nature's secrets. The wood I use is mostly reclaimed from the recycle bins of wood working schools, luthier and cabinet making shops. This is eco-friendly jewelry that is light weight, organic, but still holds elegance. It's different, it's mysterious, and it's made for you.
MATERIALS
reclaimed Monkey Puzzle wood, sterling silver bails, hypoallergenic surgical steel earwires
ARTIST / DESIGNER
Dean Robertson

Dean's colorful earrings are bright, bold, and handmade of reclaimed wood. Would you wear this nature-inspired design?

I know these are large earrings. I make 100 pairs of earrings a week and only a few are this large. Either way, wood is very lightweight in it's nature and people are always astounded at how lightweight even my largest earrings are.

Not only does Dean have beautifully crafted and unique creations, he also has excellent customer service which seems to have died a few years back.

Dean's jewelry is truly exceptional. I've bought a few pieces from him and they're always my favorite go to pieces. They're unique and exquisite. I saw someone mention they seem too long. They're not in person. They're really comfortable and don't get in the way or snagged on my clothes.
