The Layers Of Earth are what connects us all.

Layers of Earth is the Maryland based jewelry, accessories and art studio, owned and operated by Joanna Otten.
My commitment is to compassionately create with a mindset to live with intention, inspiration and kindness, to all living beings.

I see my work a visual conversation and an exploration to natural, compassionate style. My process is a juxtapose alchemy and quite often non-linear. Frequently beginning with materials and play and being open to what wants to be brought to life.

Layers Of Earth jewelry is created with plant-based, naturally dyed fibers and are vegan, eco-conscious and cruelty-free. And, a portion of every sale goes to carefully selected animal sanctuaries & rescue organizations, dedicated to bringing a vibrant, peaceful life to animals in need. Visit our Compassionate Living page for more information.
