The Layers Of Earth are what connects us all.

Layers of Earth is the Baltimore based jewelry and accessories brand, owned and operated by Joanna Otten. Forged from necessity – a vegetarian for over a decade – Joanna found a void in the fashion industry: a lack of vibrant, fashion-forward styles created for the vegan lifestyle.

More than a jewelry or lifestyle line, it’s 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. An occasion for its wearer to share with the world how they are feeling and what they believe in.

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.
