Meet Vanessa O. from Tanuki Jewelry

Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I am a handmade jewelry maker that has a passion for all things handmade, travel, photography, and french fries. I am living in Brooklyn, New York, but have also lived in Vancouver, Tokyo, Dublin, and London. I hate rodents.

Tell us about what you sell:
I create handmade jewelry made of sterling silver, natural resources such as geodes, and will be adding brass items to my shop. I create everything by hand through wax carving, soldering and manipulation.

What is your favorite thing about creating?
I love thinking about something I would like to wear to, with the exact specifics I would like and then creating them into things I can actually wear, and say that I made it by hand, rather than by machines.

Where do you find your inspiration?
I find ispiration through every day pretty things. I love looking at shapes, and thinking about how I can incorporate any kind of shapes into my designs.
