Today, we are introducing our Wanderlust necklaces!

“A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.”
John Steinbeck

In German, Wanderlust to means “enjoyment of hiking” or in modern usage a “desire to wander.” Our mini bottles have a piece of a map with the word “Wanderlust” created with a Remington Ten Forty typewriter. The traveler’s bottle captures small pieces from your journey. You can collect sand, small rocks, or anything you like from your adventures. Order it without the map to showcase your tiny collection of memories. We offer a unisex design, a leather band with natural wood endings, or a gold/silver chains that measure 18″ or 26″.

We are also featuring our handcrafted, storytelling necklaces. They are wonderful pieces that capture a personal memory. You can select any U.S. state and we’ll make it into a wooden, Americana necklace. We also offer pixie dust and dandelions. Enjoy the journey and mark it on our handcrafted wooden map!
