The Big Sur Garden Gallery's primary mission is to support local artisans, offering them a venue to help share their creations with the wider world and connect them with new fans. "Featured Artist" is an ongoing blog series focusing on an individual local artist or craftsperson.
Big Sur south coast artist Natilie Michaels creates each of her unique pieces of jewelry by hand, using consciously-sourced crystals, feathers, and mixed metals. "The intention [is] to adorn women with energetically empowering jewelry, supporting her highest potential and most sacred self, inspiring healing, self love, and personal empowerment." Inspired by mythology, sacred art, and the energy of nature, the Skullptress brand has an earthy, bohemian feel that echoes ancient and indigenous adornments while remaining fully on-trend. (Gold lambskin and quartz necklace shown above is available here!)
The Skullptress line includes one-of-a-kind earrings, necklaces, cuffs and beaded bracelets, rings, headpieces, and bag clips. A variety of organic materials from feathers and leather to animal teeth and porcupine quills accent sterling silver and brass, along with a variety of gems and vintage found objects.
Adorn yourself in beauty. Embody the free spirit of Big Sur. At the beach or on the city street, Skullptress jewelry is sure to be noticed.
