Handcrafted original Gnome jewelry. Considered to be a part of the collective memory of Eastern and Western European folk tale, many stories exist of gnomes’ helpfulness and relate the willingness of gnomes to assist in gardens. Gnomes have historically been described as small stout beings who live in Nature – usually underground. Several years ago my youngest son spent a week discussing and debating the life and culture of the Gnome with his fellow 6-year old day-campers. They tracked Gnomes all over the woods, coming close, but never siting one. Nonetheless, he is now a Certified Gnomeologist and my resident expert.
The Ark Collection reflects our desire to connect with these animal totems and carry with us the qualities they embody.
