About Us

Insouciant Studios

High quality jewelry-guilt free indulgence.

Insouciant Studios produces hand-made jewelry of the finest quality, using high end materials and an innovative, nature-inspired design approach. Each item is hand-crafted by a single person (that's me) from start to finish, assuring a true artisan attention to detail and quality. Our jewelry is made to be worn and used regularly, and is guaranteed to last for years with frequent use.

In line with our nature inspired design aesthetic, our materials include recycled silver and gold, vintage and antique chains and findings, fossils, semi-precious stones both rough and faceted, and other natural materials such as wood, bone, and sustainably harvested corals that have died naturally and washed up on the beach.

Our designs are typically one-offs, and a number of special design collections, inspired by themes and places--like Jamaica, the Desert, Natural History, or the Ocean in Winter, are produced each year. Insouciant Studios also regularly and happily accepts custom design commissions for jewelry with a true personal touch. We frequently bring this personal touch to bridal jewelry and gifts, including items for the bride, bridesmaids, and the mother of the bride.

In addition to our commitment to quality, we work hard to maintain reasonable prices, and are very proud to offer jewelry of the highest quality at a variety of price-points. We bring this same enthusiasm for affordable quality to our custom and bridal orders, and are willing to work to bring our clients designs they adore within their budgets, whether they are large or small.

Our fiber arts division, Woolpops, produces artisan quality fibers, tools, stitch markers, kits, and hand knits with the same attention to detail as our jewelry. We strive to provide our customers access to the best and most unique items, from rare breed fibers in all phases of preparation to unique felting kits, bespoke knits, and jewelry quality stitch markers.

Woolpops has an excellent selection of rare and unusual wools from many different fiber animals, including sheep, llamas and alpacas, and from other sources too, including plants and insects (think silk). We specialize in rare and hard to source breeds of sheep, and are always happy to locate breeds we don't have in stock for our customers. We make a variety of wool samplers and blends, so fiber artists can have the opportunity to try new fibers in small amounts, without the high cost and risk of purchasing each breed separately in a large quantity.

Woolpops also has a large selection of small-batch hand dyed yarns and fibers in a wide variety of fiber and preparation types, from washed and dyed fleece, to top, roving, hand carded batts, combed locks, yarn, and even hand-spun yarn. We are always thrilled to produce custom colorways, or to source and prepare new fibers to customer specifications.

A selection of hand knit items is also available in our shop. These hand knits are a collaboration between Woolpops and Insouciant Studios. Each design is hand knit for our shop by our artist-designer and many of the designs are created exclusively for our customers. With hand knits, we are always pleased to accept orders for custom and bespoke knits as well--we love collaborating and bringing your desires to life.

Wholesale Information

Insouciant Studios and Woolpops both gladly accept wholesale orders. For larger companies, we are able to offer competitive discounts and a quick turn-around on orders. For smaller companies, we can provide flexible minimums and maintain good discounts and quick turn-around on orders at the same time. For all wholesale clients, we are happy to accept custom and exclusive production orders, so you can be sure no one else will be featuring the same products. As we are a small operation, and our items are 100% hand made, we do have production limitations. However, with sufficient lead time, we are happy to take on larger orders and custom production runs, from 100-250+ items.
