I'm a maker, writer and communications strategist living in Oakland, CA. Moonwalker Things is my creative outlet and a place to share my personal passions and what I've learned on my journey to small business ownership. What you'll find here: some making, a little bit of musing, and a lot of pictures. 



Handmade clay and fiber necklaces, earrings, incense holders and plant hangers inspired by space, plant life and natural patterns.



Fall Color Refresh

Okay, so maybe it’s more like winter by now, but the colors I’m bringing into rotation are the epitome of fall. Think of fallen leaves in an apple orchard—rich brown, muted orange, mustard yellow, rusty terra cotta, and deep burgundy swirling around in a brisk breeze. I’m into it.

Combined with a brighter pop of pink or stark white or black, these shades feel full and modern and just right paired with all my fall duds. I’m looking at you, ochre wide-leg crop Everlane pants.

The terra cotta in particular cozies up to my handmade faux tortoise shell pattern like the perfect partner. In this pattern the beige clay cures to a much darker color and becomes a bit translucent, so you get a cool multi-dimensional look on dangly earrings.

At my last event, these colors stole the show, with customers snatching up many of my new pieces. So I’ve made a few more designs in preparation for the holidays. New pieces are coming to my shop soon, and several of these items can be found at Dandelion Post and Field Day in Oakland. See details on my stockists page.
