Get to Know
As a child, I spent much of my time walking and exploring in the woods beside my home. As an adult, I still spend as much time as possible being with nature. This is often reflected in the things I create. Eastern Tennessee is such a beautiful place that it is easy to feel inspired.
Owl Hollow Studio showcases the works of a daughter and mother. The above words are just as relevant for either. Both live and were raised with a love of nature, animals, and an appreciation for all good things that surround us. The simple things of life are what matters most.
Owl Hollow Studio is located in the east Tennessee mountains where beauty and wildlife abound. Owl Hollow is not just a name. The hollow itself is a real place, once well known for its moonshine made from the pure mountain streams. At the base of our mountain, the land is filled with mineral springs, though many are covered over today. From the 1870's to the 1940's, summers were a busy time here. The area had several hotels where tourists from the city and the ill would come to stay for the summers to enjoy the clean mountain air and drink the mineral waters which were believed to improve their health. Today, nothing remains of the old hotels but for a few ruins here and there. Owl Hollow remains a peaceful and beautiful place, not yet filled with the mass development that will soon come. Deer and wild turkey are still seen daily, as well as a black bear now and then. Coyotes are regularly heard at night here. Owls, well, we have many of those too.
Currently the main focus of the online shop is jewelry. Daughter and mother both are jewelry artists, as well as working with many other art forms. Paintings, photography, mixed media collage, and various other arts may well be offered in the future, but for now, the online store offers mainly jewelry.
All of the jewelry is handmade. We strive to be eco-friendly in a reasonable way. Much of the work is in copper. Much of the copper used is recycled or reclaimed. Many natural stones, seeds, nuts, woods, and some recycled glass, and assorted other natural or recycled items are used. We do not use any products from rare or endangered plants or animals. We also make some pieces from reclaimed or repurposed vintage pieces. This will be specified in the item description. Creating jewelry is a passion for us. We hope you enjoy the pieces as much as we enjoyed making them.
