Creature’s Virtue started in 2016 as a collection of naturally and symbolically inspired jewelry. Aesthetically motivated by exploration in texture and scale, the collection has evolved into something organic and curiously elegant. Creature’s Virtue is committed to supporting local businesses and sustainable practices. All jewelry is produced using ethically sourced gemstones and metals (brass, sterling silver, 14k gold), local printers and suppliers are used whenever possible. In the three years since its founding, Creature’s Virtue has grown from a small side project being operated out of my apartment, to a business based in Asheville’s thriving River Arts District, in a shared studio and gallery space.
