Parrish Relics is a dream come true for me ~ creating wearable shrines that speak of Mythic Symbolism, a love of Nature, Ancient Folklore. I hope that they go on to tell the wearer's own story of the things that they love & cherish.
Please let me know if you have any questions after viewing this selection of current & past work. Would really love to collaborate & bring something special to life exclusively for your museum or gift shop. Thank you! ~ Jen Parrish-Hill
