Autumn is upon us here in the Ozarks – you can feel it in the crisp bite of the air, you can see it in the leaves beginning to fall, and you can probably taste it too – many area restaurants, cafes, and bakeries are bringing out flavors like pumpkin spice and caramel apple. With the coming of fall colors also comes the need to evaluate your wardrobe. Chances are, you will want to show off some fall colors as well, and new clothing articles mean you will need some new jewelry and accessories! You’re in luck – the Branson/Tri-Lakes area is home to some great Branson shops to purchase these fun items.
Modern Earth Creations
Modern Earth Creations is an artistic local jewelry business created, owned and operated by resident College of the Ozarks student and Ozarks native Caleb Howerton. What first began as a simple interest in trying new things and experimenting with new and different art mediums has blossomed into a love of creating handcrafted pieces and a full-fledged online jewelry shop. “This is one of my passions,” Caleb said of making his jewelry. Every piece of jewelry from Modern Earth Creations is uniquely one-of-a-kind and handmade by Caleb. He uses a variety of natural mediums to create some of his pieces – everything from feathers and rocks, to bones and beetle wings grace many of the Modern Earth Creations earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Steampunk inspired pieces can be found in this Branson area shop as well – things like watch gears and small parts of computer motherboards are implemented to create this style. Wire is another medium frequently used by this innovative jeweler – many baubles sport wire wrapped beads or stones. Caleb also uses the wire to create intricate chainmail necklaces – chainmail is the art of linking small wire rings together to create a long strand or a mesh. He notes that the chainmail is what generates a lot of interest in his shop. If you are looking for unique piece for your fall wardrobe, perhaps one inspired by the natural colors of fall, Modern Earth Creations has the accessory for you!
