What girl doesn’t want to look cute with her fashion choices? Coming from four years in a sorority, I have experienced girls constantly looking for new things to wear and trade with for the next big event. Looking fashionable, yet unique is a must! That is exactly what Indiana Artisan Allison Ford offers with her intricate wooden jewelry from her Studio AMF in downtown Indianapolis.
Indiana Artisan is an organization that works to select Hoosier artists from all sorts of walks of life in order to promote their individual craftsmanship. Allison, part of this wonderful organization, works with primarily domestic and salvaged wood to create a modern bohemian feel with her pieces. She mainly creates earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings in every shape and size.
Already busy fulfilling orders for Christmas, this stay-at-home mom sells her jewelry mainly through her Etsy store, at the Indiana State Museum and at Homspun in Irvington. Her pieces could be made for whatever occasion necessary with prices ranging anywhere from $40 to $400, making the jewelry affordable for everyone. The attention to detail in each handcrafted item shows clean simple lines with a little pizazz for pop.
Most popular (and my personal favorite!) are the customized brail rings. Pick your own wood, color, and word and VOILA a masterpiece of simplistic beauty yet a bold statement. These could make a perfect birthday, Christmas or anniversary gift for women of at all ages.
I loved all of Allison’s pieces! I almost bought a beautiful white, yellow, black, and gold enamel ring on the spot and would highly encourage any women looking to add to their accessories collection to give her work a look!
