ORU

honey-kennedy-oru-jewelry-01

I love the new ORU jewelry collection by Portland-based designer Agnieszka Zoltowski! Agnieszka creates her beautiful, sculptural pieces with the delicate weaving of special tiny Japanese glass beads. She finds this work calming and meditative compared to the bronze and silver metalsmithing to make the structures and frames for the intricate beadwork. I’m especially into the Kagami Earrings, the Connect Bracelet (so good with the Dot Bracelet!!), the Journey Necklace, the Corona Ring, the Palatine Ring, the Wishbone Earrings, the Selene Necklace, the Little Bird Earrings, and the Mobile Necklace. More HERE.

Agnieszka’s new work and the relaunch of her website both really feature her love for the sustainability factor of using recycled sterling silver as opposed to other metals which have the additional step of needing to be refined before you can work with them again. I admire her dedication to finding ways to be mindful of sustainability from materials to packaging, and the overall process that makes a better working environment for herself and everyone working in the ORU studio. She also seeks out other mindful companies to work with and pays her contractors a living wage. We need more of this! Thanks, Agnieszka! ♥

Hi, friends. It’s been an awful week (year?) and we still have so many people in harm’s way with hurricanes, floods, fires, and horrible rightwing politics. I know so many people are feeling scared and emotionally depleted from everything going on and I am with you. Keep holding on to positive thoughts for the future and your compassion for those who are struggling even more. Big hugs to everyone! I hope you find some joy this weekend and find ways to help — it’s really the only cure for the doldrums created by both political and natural storms. You’re all in my thoughts. xo Jen
