Hi, my name is Joan. I’m a self taught jewelry designer & fiber artist.
I started my shop after a trip to Mérida where I was so inspired by the beautiful colors and natural landscapes of the Yucatán. I looked at the designs of other jewelry companies and designers for inspiration. If you are interested, find other minority jewelers.
My first pair of earrings were made of pompoms from a local Mayan shop and reminded me of a shooting star, which inspired the idea of “Babe Comets”. They’re super fun and lightweight earrings made for pierced and unpierced ears! Go ahead and order yourself a pair! Also, feel free to message me with questions on orders or custom requests! Also on Etsy
My plunge into pompom making, after what felt like a lifelong hiatus from creativity, gave way to this beautiful Babe Comets community that has become larger than life. It is a community that boasts of self-love, communal appreciation, and boundless affirmations. Our babes embody confidence, boldness, and unadulterated fun as they strut into their goals.
When I’m not making cute earrings, I’m finding new wine bottles to take pictures of (& consume obvi) and producing content for our Instagram and look books.
