About Me

An Unlikely Path to Full Time Artist

My Story:

My name is Sumner Smith and I make contemporary botanical jewelry at my family farm in Asheville, NC. I'm a full-time artist, but I've followed a slightly different path than most:

I've worked as a corporate attorney, started a family, launched a cut flower business on the family farm, and explored most of the mountain bike trails in Western North Carolina.

As you might have guessed, I like to stay occupied! I also like to figure out how to make beautiful things. I've enjoyed most every aspect of flowers and botanicals, from growing them myself to arranging flowers for local weddings, and now preserving their beauty in my jewelry.

My Process:

I produce my jewelry with exacting attention to detail, and a dedication to customer service. I love connecting with my customers - it's one of the most rewarding parts of running my business!

I use specialized techniques and equipment for every facet of my process. I make my molds using a vacuum degassing process, and cure my resin in a custom-made pressure casting system, all to produce exceptional resin jewelry.  

I am proud of the quality of my jewelry, and stand behind it with superior customer service. I will do everything possible to make sure you are happy with your purchase. In the event that you want to make an exchange or return, just send a convo. It's really that easy. :)

Your Support:

When you support my shop you are supporting my dream to carve a different path - one that emphasizes creativity, independence, balance and family. Your support enables me to live my dream, and I thank you. xoxo
