Natural Materials Meet Eclectic Style

We're a husband-and-wife team, designing handcrafted jewelry for you from carefully sourced natural materials.


Welcome to The Snarky Owl Workshop, where older is better than newer, natural is better than man-made, and individuality is better than mainstream cookie-cutter fashion. Beautiful natural jewelry doesn’t have to be expensive. Our mission is to offer eye-catching pieces crafted from quality materials within your budget.

If you are looking for a ready-to-ship gift, most of our jewelry can be on its way to you on the next business day. 

If you're looking for a special gift and have a custom request or substitution, send us a message with your request. You'll receive a same-day response, and we can set up a custom order for you. 

What can you expect to find in our shop? 
🦉 Limited-edition jewelry made from glass and natural untreated gemstones. We carefully select our materials to emphasize their natural beauty and provide an eclectic shopping experience for you.
🦉 One-of-a-kind designs made from upcycled jewelry – this holds a special place in our hearts. On our wanders through antique shops and flea markets, sometimes we find pieces deserving of a new life. Beautiful stones on a necklace with a broken string, or a stunning crystal earring that’s lost its mate – they come home with us to get disassembled, cleaned, and reinvented into something new.
🦉 Vintage costume jewelry finds too wonderful to upcycle into anything other than what it is!
Our Commitment to You:
🦉 Natural Gemstones:
The new gemstones in your jewelry will not be dyed, irradiated, or synthetic. Heat-treated gemstones and unidentified upcycled materials will be disclosed in the product description.
🦉 High Standards:
Before your order ships, both of us will quality-check your jewelry. If we aren't happy with it, we won't ship it until we are.
🦉 Fast Shipping:
If your jewelry is ready-to-ship, we're ready to drop it in the mail for you! Made-to-order and custom jewelry orders will have a short turnaround time before shipping.

Who are we?
We’re a husband-and-wife team, both with teaching backgrounds. We try to keep the teacher-speak out of our descriptions, but old habits die hard 😉 Pete's degree is in History and Anthropology, and Laura has taught Latin for almost two decades. 

We're passionate about creating both the classic and the quirky, always from natural materials. Throughout history, humans from all cultures around the world have adorned themselves with the beauty they’ve found in the natural world around them – stones, glass, shells, bones, wood – and that’s what’s at the heart of our creative process. 

Stay snarky!
Pete & Laura, The Snarky Owl Workshop
