Journey Leaves Necklaces – Found and Kept

Samantha Pagni just moved to Charlottesville.  She is a teacher.  A mother.  A chic chick.  An Artist.

Her design company, aptly named Found and Kept, uses found objects, old journal entries, books, and an artist’s eye to create jewelry that seems both ancient and completely fresh.

These Journey Leaves Necklaces were finalists in the Uncommon Goods’ Product Contest.  And they can only be found on Redbud.

Here, Sam’s daughter interviews her mother about her art and her life.

Mine is in Amber.  I love the way the leaves rustle and the Silver Wire lays gently around my neck.
