#throwback to 2010 the beginnings of Gypsy Bones πŸ‘£πŸŒŽ This is where the name of my business comes from, the period in my life spent as a traveling gypsy!β›ΊοΈπŸšπŸ›©β›΅οΈπŸ—ΊπŸ›€πŸ•ŒπŸWhen I was 18 I finished my first year in art school in Philly and went to a Rainbow Gathering that summer in my home state Pennsylvania that changed my life forever πŸ¦‹πŸŒˆβ˜€οΈ From there I went traveling on a hippie schoolbus and then hitchhiking surrounding states. I returned for another year in art school and couldn’t resist the urge to travel the world when I found out my study abroad plans weren’t going to happen. I left the city and took off in a van across the country with my best friends to Washington state for that year’s Rainbow Gathering 🌈 From there I traveled up and down the coast hitchhiking with my boyfriend at the time, having a blast camping and going to different gatherings and festivals, eventually ending the summer with Burning Man and a very psychedelic week of exploring at Arches National Park and the giant playground that it is. 🏜 This photo is from that second summer of hitchhiking after I climbed a mountain near Mount Shasta, which you can see in the background. πŸ” This was just the first of many years of traveling and adventures! My jewelry is influenced and inspired by all the trinkets I wore and saw made by fellow travelers along the way πŸ¦‹πŸ—Ί . . . #gypsy #gypsylife #gypsylife #gypsysouls #gypsystyle #gypsygirl #gypsylocs #gypsyvibes #gypsyboho #gypsylook #gypsysoul #gypsyspirit #gypsyjewelry #hippiegypsy #hippiejewelry #hippiegirl #hippielife #hippiestyle #travelgirl #travellife #gypsyheart #wanderlust #wanderer #wanderers #hitchhiking #mountshasta #mtshasta #boholife #boholifestyle
