Welcome and thank you for visiting Acorn & Artisan!
If you're like me you have little free time to spend on yourself more days than not, AND want to feel your best.
Our products are made with love and aim to empower you to feel confident and make a bold statement. I specialize in making one of a kind pieces of jewelry, and love making quirky apparel to make you feel your best.
All of the jewelry I make is nickel and lead free. Most of my pieces are made from sterling silver and 14k gold-filled wire or are cast from a hand carved piece of wax into sterling silver and brass.
My shirts are unisex unless otherwise noted and are screen printer and/or sublimated with unique designs. These shirts are not only buttery soft, but also will stand the test of time. Using my academic background, you'll notice that many of my designs are focused on cheeky animal puns.
My hubby and I met in Georgia while I was pusuing my MS. Natural Science. Soon thereafter we moved to rural Maine. Like for many couples my family took a lot of work to create. By January of 2019 my husband and I had the dreaded IVF talk with our reproductive endocrinologist at Boston IVF. If you don’t know anyone who has gone through the infertility tango and/or IVF, it’s a long process that is emotionally, physically, and mentally taxing.
Around this time, my sister told me I needed a hobby - something to get my mind off of the what if’s and how come’s of our situation. My business was “opened” in 2019 as my creative outlet.
We were blessed on lucky embryo transfer #3 and 4 and now have two beautiful kiddos . My days are spent making wearable art, taking care of my two littles, and I teach biology courses as an adjunct at Central Maine Community College.
