Featured Etsy Shop : foxtailboutique


I'm struck with awe and fascination by the creations of Betty Yates at foxtailboutique! I have never seen jewellery quite like it, the focus on geometry and spinning parts has me utterly intrigued. I am imagining holding these pieces in my hand and roll the stunning gemstones between my fingers.

Working with silver, brass, bronze and gemstones Betty creates jewelery with an otherwordly, cosmic appeal, her spinning gyroscope necklaces are truly a stroke of timeless genius.

Here is what shop creator Betty Yates has to say about the pursuit of creative happiness:

"I started up Foxtail with no goals or expectations, just with the knowledge that I desperately needed a creative outlet. This steady pursuit of creative happiness slowly blossomed into a business, and now, on my better days, I run Foxtail full time. On my less-better days, it runs me...! All in all, I cherish the freedom and welcome the challenges that this entrepreneurial life brings."

Well, I for one am very happy that Betty decided to put her creative gift to work and share it with the world!

Made from solid brass, the BRASS DOTTED BANGLE has a fantastic weight to it and looks gorgeous on its own or layered with other bracelets.


Set on a sterling silver band, the DOUBLE TRIANGLE RING features a very cool double brass triangle, made to order to fit your ring size.


Created with movement in mind, the TRIPLE KINETIC ARCH NECKLACE features three large hand formed arches connected by two pins, allowing them to move independently of one another. One side of the brass arches is textured with a hammer, and the other side is left smooth.



THE SATELLITE GYROSOPE NECKLACE - TURQUOISE: A thick brass frame, carefully constructed to curve around the spinning rings, holds within two beautiful spheres-- one turquoise and one silver ceramic. The rings and spheres spin, suspended by small brass tube beads on a pin, allowing the rings to rotate freely with a flick of a finger.



The crescent moon shaped LUNA NECKLACE in hammered brass layers beautifully with other pieces and is perfect for everyday wear. Shown above layered with the TRIPLE BAR NECKLACE.


GYROSCOPE 3 - BLUE GOLDSTONE: A cast bronze frame curves around two cast bronze spinning rings, and holds within a blue goldstone sphere. Both the rings and spheres are suspended by small brass tube beads on a pin, allowing the rings to rotate freely with a flick of a finger.


The KYANITE SWING NECKLACE features a stunning piece of rough kyanite that swings freely to and fro on a pin within its brass frame.



THE SATELLITE GYROSOPE NECKLACE - LAPIS: A thick brass frame, carefully constructed to curve around the spinning rings, holds within two beautiful spheres-- one lapis and one silver ceramic. The rings and spheres spin, suspended by small brass tube beads on a pin, allowing the rings to rotate freely with a flick of a finger.


The TRIPLE TRIANGLE NECKLACE features a geometric brass pendant suspended from an oxidized 18" antiqued brass chain.


The beautifully minimalist BRASS PYRAMID RING features a hollow brass pyramid mounted on a lightly hammered sterling silver band.



The FACETED CRYSTAL SPINNER features a beautifully clear, asymmetrically faceted piece of quartz crystal which spins freely within its simple brass frame with a flick of a finger.


The CRESCENT DAGGER EARRINGS feature three linked brass crescent moons which have a subtle but unique texture milled into the surface. A gunmetal dagger drop gives them that extra edge.


The beautiful, delicate SMOKY DECO NECKLACE features a stunning piece of 10mm faceted smoky quartz. The sterling silver charm is minimalistic with fine lines inspired by the art deco era, and a polished silver ball detailing the bottommost point.
