Getting castings back feels a lot like Christmas to us. Because we tend to streamline our work, sometimes months pass between when we’ve
designed a wax model and when we finally have it cast. Between today’s new batch and another on the way, we will have new designs and be stocked up on some of our classics. There’s also a custom piece in this round that is a surprise, so we’ll update with pictures when they’ve received it!
This is a sneak peak at some pieces we’ll be having cast soon!

We flew the coop…
As some of you may know, we’ve decided to close our shop in Taos for a number of reasons. Last summer we had opened a shop in beautiful Northern New Mexico in search of health, freedom, and adventure. But after nearly 1 year open, it became apparent that this was not the path for us. Our health was dwindling (mostly mental health), we felt anything but free (more like caged birds), and there wasn’t much room for but a handful of exploration while having a brick and mortar store.
After meeting lots of folks in the jewelry and handcraft world and considering their success, we’ve taken the que to focus on sharing our work at shows and fairs as well as our online platform. This summer our focus will be traveling throughout New England and the East Coast. It was a hard and scary decision to make after investing all we had into opening the store in Taos, but ultimately, this lines up with our values and goals, and we’re super excited to be heading out on the road, (and being true to ourselves!)
Our decision has been met with a lot of questions, concerns, and doubt, as most bold decisions are. (Nothing new there!) On the other hand, we’ve received tons of encouragement and support from some of the kindest, most successful people we’re blessed to have in our lives. Thank you to the folks who have cheered us on and keep us inspired! We’re grateful to the doubters too, as it’s an important lesson in character, and cherishing our true selves. Life is too short to live how other people think you should live.
On that note, we’re wishing our readers strength, health, and happiness as you head out on your adventures!
In addition to the online market place with Zibbet, we have also re-opened our Esty shop!
Check it out, maybe some new work you haven’t seen yet!
Ever wonder how your jewelry is made? There are several approaches to creating fine, wearable art, and over the next few days I will be sharing the ways that Two Birds goes about creating our wares.
