My name is Goerdt Lamberts, founder and creative mind behind Things In Wood.
I come from a European background and education, coming to the US in the 80s to pursue my dream of creating wooden art and owning my own antique furniture restoration business. After years in the restoration business, I had used my craftsmanship to create unique gifts for my wife, eventually perfecting the technique of inlaid wooden jewelry. Starting with Hair Barrettes and Earrings, I soon started making Men's Accessories like Money Clips, Keychains, Cufflinks and Tie Clips for my three stylish sons. It wasn't until 2010 that I started making these items to sell, but since then I have been able to share my form of artistic creative expression through Things In Wood with people like you.
My newest venture at Things In Wood is Bracelets, as I have started selling pre-made as well as taking custom orders for Segmented Wooden Bracelets; a classic and sophisticated look that leave even the finest wooden jewelry connoisseurs amazed.
Each piece at Things In Wood is unique from the next, as mother nature has a way of crafting one-of-a-kind pieces of art through rare/exotic trees, stones, and even shells such as Abalone and Mother of Pearl. I then craft these wonders of nature into wearable jewelry that nobody else could replicate.
*All of the rare woods and materials used at Things In Wood are sustainably harvested, Fair Trade Certified, or reclaimed wood from antique furniture and damaged trees.*
Almost every piece aside from certain barrettes are customizable, and I am willing/able to make anything one could dream up, just contact me with questions and I will work with you to create the piece of wooden jewelry of your dreams.
