Terra Cotta Pendants

Terra Cotta Pendants is a family business born in the summer of 2003. How did a Calligrapher, an Artist/Jack-of-all-Trades and their two teenage children come to be making wearable essential oil diffusers?

Here's our story!

It started with a question: how could we put the children through university and at the same time provide them with work so they could earn the money themselves! The answer was right under my nose :-) for quite some time before I (Lori) saw it. It came from an experience I had while teaching Essential Oil Workshops.

At the Workshops I taught about the many ways to use essential oils. When I outlined the benefits of diffusing and inhaling the oils, I showed the piece of clay I had tied around my neck with a piece of leather cord. I explained how, with this diffuser, they could have their oils in their breathing space wherever they went, throughout the day. They were entranced! As a body they leaned forward, asking where they could get one. This happened again and again at the workshops. I realized pendant diffusers would be the perfect accessory to essential oils as they give people an inexpensive and effective way to begin using essential oils right away!

It was on a Tuesday early in June 2003 when we decided we would make wearable clay diffusers. On Friday, just three days later, Auguste found a large kiln at a yard sale and purchased it for only fifty dollars! Of course it needed some welding work on the outside, but remember I told you he was a Jack-of-all-Trades? When he arrived home and opened the back doors of his 1965 VW microbus to display this large kiln sitting there, I knew we were meant to do this! The “Pendant Project” began in earnest!

Alex made the first web site that summer. He was fourteen at the time. He has been improving, updating and maintaining the site since then! He is very busy in his second year at University, and has remained (thankfully!) our remote webmaster!

Natasha designed of three of our more popular Terra Cotta Pendants: Blessed, Moon Goddess and WWJD. She is completing her fourth year of university this year!

Auguste is the artist / clay man/ creator of the pendants. He is meticulous in his handling of the clay and has developed trade-secret methods of creating the pendants, minimizing waste and improving output! Every clay piece is care-fully, crafted by his hands.

I am the one you talk to when you call! I still do calligraphy - you'll see it on your packages! I love meeting people, connecting with customer/friends all over the world! Terra Cotta Pendants is an experience that became much more than it was ever conceived to be!

That's our story! We hope you enjoy your Terra Cotta Pendants. We love to hear your suggestions and comments. We deeply appreciate your feedback, support and the blessings that you send.

Auguste, Lori, Natasha and Alex
