Waxing Poetic jewelry comes to you from Los Olivos, California, by way of designer Patti Pagliei Simpson, her intimate coterie of friends and family (sisters in particular): like-minded artists, dreamers, adventurers, and raconteurs. Patti grew up enveloped by love--and boisterous, joyful Italian-Americans. Imagine life as theatre as family, and you might get something close to an idea. Everyone had roles, but Pattis parents wanted everyone to make their own, and said things to the effect of write your own life; be the great story; indulge your imagination; follow your heart, etc. and so she did. Patti has carried this inherent beauty and foundation, coupled with a childhood steeped in creative imagination, into her design innovation for Waxing Poetic.
Waxing Poetic jewelry is hand crafted by an incredible batch of Balinese artisans, truly part of the extended Waxing Poetic family. They work closely with the Bali wing in both refining their designs, and in building aesthetic sensibility based not only on concept, but also on construction, and shared content. Waxing Poetic believes in community--not just theirs, but the overall global adventure-version of community.
