Native American Inspired Jewelry by Miju

By on Tuesday, March 29, 2011 6 Comments

Miju on Etsy is the brain child of Mike Giles and Judy Lawrence who hail from Montreal, Canada. They specialize in making distinctive laser cut wood jewelry.


What caught my eye was their Manha collection which is Navajo inspired. Their Native American inspired jewelry has striking geometric Thunderbird and feather designs.  Texture effects are etched onto the pieces and the bold colors are hand painted.



The wooden pendants are all solid walnut which are leftover pieces from Mike'swood working shop, Furni. What a splendid way of using unwanted but precious bits of wood!

  2. Very cool designs...I love it when someone uses what would be scraps in their jewelry designs! I've been using my scrap silver for sometime now. I know silver can be sent away but I like the idea of using it myself!
    Cheers
