Tangerine Treeehouse

Tangerine Treehouse is a very unique jewelry making, headbadge banging kind of place.  If you are looking for a really unique piece of jewelry with a story to go with it, come check out Tangerine's work.  They are usually one of a kind design made from recycled metals, organic materials, and designed by a traveling artist and author: Laura Crawford.

This Spring, Laura and her partner have re-started their peddling bike trip across United States once more.  Her first trip began in July 2009 that took 15 months and 10,000 miles across the country.  Her Path Less Pedaled blog chronicles her trips to the wonderous places in the U.S.  Through this journey, Laura found inspiration, made new friends, and gathered materials for her artful pieces.

Her works are all hand made, using traditional metalworking tools she carry with her on the bicycle trip adventure.  The organic material you see in her necklaces can be anything from plants like seeds and leaves.  

As she cycles through the vast landscape and towns, Laura uses her trusty map to help navigate her way.  When these maps are no longer needed, it becomes part of her jewelry.

Most notable of her work are the headbadges.  What are they? Take a look here...
