The concept of archaic alchemy speaks to many things. Archaic seems to move beyond the timeline of ancient in way that transcends our concepts of easily defined culture, civilization and borders. It brings to mind a tap root plunging deep into the earth, governed by the old ones, the elemental forces of Air, Fire, Water & Earth. Alchemy is a word that describes the art of a hands on spirit based inquiry, involving a mind, body, and soul approach. This collection is thus named to act as a bridge to the primordial landscapes of the Alaskan North, each item intended as a personal ritual tool, transporting you to a place beyond time. These formulations came to me through my own ancestral practice and have become profound bioregional tools while cultivating and caring for my external & internal home. The majority of the plants I am drawn to within my environment and chose to work with in this collection are circumpolar, meaning they grow around the northern hemisphere of the world, and are allies amongst many a cultural backdrop. They possess a knowing my bones are familiar with and it is my desire that these creations stir archaic memories within you as well.
A much anticipated jewelry line created in house, within Skye’s handbuilt smithy, incorporating talismanic botanical elements cast straight from the forest, and primordial textures from the sea.
