Jewelry Showcase: Handmade Jewelry for Earth Lovers by WAXTHEDUCK

by JewelStruck on May.13, 2012, under Jewelry Showcase

Showcasing today, Jewelry by Brooklyn based WAXTHEDUCK. It is an independent line of handmade jewelry made for earth lovers. Designed by Chrissy Reilly, WAXTHEDUCK was an outlet for her creativity at a time she had taken on a full time job and abandoned her fine art practice. Making necklaces became a direct connection to finding materials and transforming them into something tactile and important.



WAXTHEDUCK jewelry is inspired by the earth, what is found on its surface and what is made by the remains that are altered by its surroundings. Wood, feathers, glass, stone, leather, and metals are all the ingredients that can be used to compose a necklace. Reilly says “I like to leave part of the making in the process, whether it be showing the weld in the metal, the string on the length… all of these imperfections indicate the process that the piece took to make and act as my continued part and signature in it’s existence; my hand. It’s truly important to me to remain connected to my work even after its sale.”



Today, Reilly designs and makes over 100 pieces and distributes through Etsy and her website Occasionally she will set up at the local, Coffee shot Beaner Bar, “Artist and Fleas”, or “Brooklyn Market”. Her ideal is to have a place where people of all ages can come and find affordable jewelry, accessories and clothing. You can checkout etsy store for more details. Also you can get in touch with her over facebook, twitter and tumblr.
