about Mint & Birch
hi! it's nice to meet you!
My name is Jessica, and I'm the maker behind Mint & Birch. I am mama of 5, wife, artist, and friend. I am an advocate for mental health and mother to my inner child. On a rainy day, you can find me snuggled up on the couch with my babies under a mint coloured blanket.
I struggle with my own mental health, and I am passionate about speaking openly on it because we all deserve to cherish, live and savour our lives, even when we feel like we are in the darkness. Where there is darkness, there is also light.
My purpose for Mint & Birch is to celebrate stories and hold space - whether they are ones of sorrow, joy, heartbreak, sadness, triumph, or grief. Everyone has their story to tell and jewellery is a way that we can honour those stories. My favourite word is Kintsukuroi, which is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with real gold, making the break a beautiful feature of the piece and enhancing the value of the once broken piece. This was my story for my 3rd baby, who born via traumatic c-section that I had a hard time healing from. (Read more here!) My goal is to celebrate your stories with beautiful jewellery! Most importantly, Mint & Birch is my creative journal.
