Hey, there! Thanks for visiting the Handmade Arcade Virtual Marketplace! My name is Beth Arnstein and I’m the maker behind Jewelry by Old Soul. Since 2019, I offer a collection of wooden jewelry created from scraps of my large furniture refinishing and repurposing projects. Recognizing the beauty in even the smallest pieces of wood and the environmental need for less waste, these scraps become cufflinks, earrings, and pendants inspired by geometric shapes, glyphs, botanical structure, and the color and grain of the wood itself. Each piece is celebration of the beauty of wood and nature that nurtures the wearer.
ABOUT MY PRODUCTS:
I hand cut and assemble each unique piece, finish the jewelry with stainless steel findings, and seal the wood with mineral oil as often as possible. Finishing the wood this way allows the wearer to apply essential oils, and the piece becomes a diffuser that holds scent for multiple wears. Not into oils? That’s okay too! My wooden accessories are great for any eco-conscious wearer looking for a statement piece.
