A necklace made from yucca cordage, Job's Tears seeds (which naturally grow with a hole through the middle) arranged from light to dark, and a found stick.  The closure is the notch on the stick that snugly holds the cordage.

Dun Market is a place where I can offer up the accessories I make out of natural and found materials.  Many of the plant materials come from my backyard.  Cordage from the fibers of the yucca plant is the base of many of my pieces.  Animal materials are food by-products (co-products?) or second-hand.

I take inspiration from the bounty of the earth and the ancient methods of celebrating and utilizing these gifts.  My goal is to use materials that have a rich (and possibly forgotten) history in fresh, minimalistic ways that let their story shine through.

The shop is not just a place to sell things, but a place to meet like-minded folks.  Please feel free to comment or send me a note to say "hellooo!":
I actually prefer trades to monetary payments, holler at me for trades!
