DOLLYBIRD DESIGN Marshland Ring, $175  Katie Johansson is working to “keep the rapidly disappearing lapidary arts alive” by creating collector jewelry for people who value unique handmade pieces. She works with independent miners who hand-cut and polish each stone, unearthing “little pieces of art that only Mother Nature could create.” Flow with the forest’s flora with this collector agate ring celebrating the last days of summer with heavenly swirls of leaf, moss, lichen greens and whispery ivory. Hand bezel set in sterling and bubbly in its cut, this Brazilian agate is a one-of-a-kind gem.

Thank you Etsy!

Weathered but Gleaming

Dollybird is proud to be a part of Local Eclectic today. Shop a very special collection only available at


long before local eclectic was born, we were a fan of katie johansson’s dollybird. so when we asked her if she wanted to be featured and she suggested doing a mini collection for the site, we were beyond thrilled! if we had to choose one word to describe her designs, it would be dramatic. she creates big, bold, powerful, statement pieces and this collection is no different. using rare and highly metallic native metal gemstones, katie hand carved the stones and set them in sterling silver. the rings will cover knuckle to knuckle and the necklaces will make the outfit! each piece is handmade and one of a kind, making this collection (and all of her works) collectibles! if you aren’t already familiar with her line, prepare to be wowed.

meet the designer and shop her collection.

Eagerly Awaiting Spring


Crystal Winter






May your Winter Season be filled with Exploration, Enchantment and Wonder. Thank you to all my fans that have made Dollybird a true symbol of an eclectic independent business surviving all these years. It is because of folks like you that keep unique beauty very much alive.
A very blessed and Merry Christmas to you all! xo, Katie

Dollybird Windswept


Natural soft rose colored hues are broken in pattern with this unique Jasper gem that sits underneath a wispy muted translucent Sagenite gem. Collector Sagenite gem is a rare and striking Agate stone that has needle like mineral growths within its soft dimensional layers. These black needle inclusions are beautifully displayed in radial fans, making for a dramatic windswept motion to the piece.  Sagenite measures 72mm wide x 41mm tall and rose colored Jasper measures 62mm round. Necklace is hand bezel set in sterling and hangs from a sturdy 18 inch chain.

A Dollybird one of a kind that is hand stamped and numbered as one to collect. A dreamy, moody statement medallion to lay around your neck for those stormy windswept days.
