Waxing Poetic whimsical with a message jewelry and charms come to you from Carpinteria, 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. They make things they love and you can tell by how it makes one feel wearing this magical pieces. Linking people through sentiments is what they do best. "If we can make things to share, to pass in between, we can do more than we ever hoped – and then some." The jewelry is fabricated by an incredible batch of Balinese craftspersons, truly part of the Waxing Poetic extended ‘family’. These incredible people devote themselves and their lives to beauty, both in action and intent. The Bali artisans are paid several times more than minimum wage, and treated with respect, dignity, and most importantly, gratitude. Waxing Poetic believes in community–not just theirs, but the overall global adventure version of community.
