Waxing Poetic jewelry, charms, objects, candles, housewares, and general amusements come to you from Carpinteria, California, by way of designer Patti Pagliei Simpson, her intimate coterie of friends and family (sisters in particular): like-minded artists, dreamers, adventurers, and raconteurs. We make things we love, and hope you like them too.We believe that faith, risk, hope, and joy are inextricably bound, and never mutually exclusive. Adventure and routine are strange, and sometimes lovely, cousins. There is a way to write the lines in between all of us, and in our own small way, we want to make links. If we can make things to share, to pass in between, we can do more than we ever hoped – and then some.Our jewelry is fabricated by an incredible batch of Balinese craftspersons, truly part of our extended ‘family’. These incredible people devote themselves and their lives to beauty, both in action and intent. Somehow we were blessed to have them join forces with us. Our Bali artisans are paid several times more than minimum wage, and treated with respect, dignity, and most importantly, gratitude. We work closely with the Bali wing of the WP family in both refining our designs, and in building aesthetic sensibility based not only on concept, but also on construction, and shared content.Waxing Poetic believes in community–not just ours, but the overall global adventure version of community. We want to be fair, to be good, and to be grateful. We do our best, but know we can always do better. Much of that better, really and truly, is thanks to you. Visit Waxing Poetic
