Patti Pagliei-Simpson founded Waxing Poetic Jewelry in Carpinteria, California in 2002 around the idea of bringing her designs to life in a sustainable and ethical way. Inspired by friends, family, artists and many other connections, Waxing Poetic is a culmination of a lifetime of experiences and creativity.
Waxing Poetic jewelry is crafted by Balinese craftspersons with quality materials. Highly trained and deeply devoted to beauty, Waxing Poetic’s Bali artisans are paid fair wages and work in excellent conditions. Waxing Poetic believes in global community and pursues it by supporting its artisans as well as Pagliei-Simpson’s vision for her art.
It is the beautiful poetry of this culture that infuses the Waxing Poetic designs with the deeply rooted connection through exquisite handmade artistry. We feel honored and blessed to have such a loving group of people we call our Waxing Poetic family.
