Why a waterstrider?

Waterstriders walk on water. Our brand is a tribute extraordinary around and within us every day.

My sister and I design and craft the jewelry for Waterstrider Design. We both find creating jewelry to be a way to cope with life’s challenges and we hope to make pieces that encourage and inspire the wearer. I believe wearing a piece of art can inspire internal strength, peace, and creativity. We design jewelry to help the wearer focus on positive qualities in themselves. Our work includes hand-painted, carved, and sculpted pieces inspired by imagination, life, and nature. We create using many different media like metal clay, leather, acrylic paint, beads, stones, polymer clay, resin, dried plants, and wood.
