HAND-PAINTED JEWELRY by Faryn Davis

Faryn Davis grew up on a rural farm in Western North Carolina. Her childhood days were filled with adventures, including collecting tiny treasures from nature like bird nests, feathers, moss, bones, twigs, and bugs. Even today, Faryn’s love for nature hasn’t faded. She continues her scavenger hunts, gathering small, incidental natural objects. This passion for the great outdoors shines through in her exquisite hand-painted jewelry line, Fernworks.

Faryn has been crafting with resin for over 20 years. Her art jewelry is hand-painted with toothpicks and brushes, embedded in epoxy, then polished into delicate, dreamlike 3-D landscapes populated by woodland creatures and magical symbols. In some work, she incorporates ethically sourced specimens and found objects into her dimensional layers of polished resin.

Fernworks jewelry is all one-of-a-kind and handmade with love in small batches. Keep in mind when ordering that there are always slight variations in shape, size, and color tone.

Faryn attended the North Carolina School of the Arts and received a BFA in sculpture from UNC Asheville. After an eight-year hiatus in the Pacific Northwest, she returned to Asheville with her husband and son. She creates her hand-painted art jewelry in a little studio in her backyard.
