Best Use of Wood Shavings: Black Swamp

Black Swamp

Staff Pick

Talk about killin’ two birds with one stone? Listen to this one. Katie Thompson began making Black Swamp jewelry as a spinoff of her husband’s woodshop business, Joseph Thompson Woodworks. The latter produces furniture, and before the dust even settles from a newly fashioned chair or table, Katie’s already digging through the wood shavings that remain. From this, she creates exquisite bracelets, necklaces, and earrings that appear incredibly delicate but are surprisingly durable. Recycling at its prettiest.
