Over the years, I've become known for my amber work in plugs and ear weights, which I can't do anymore due to nerve damage in my hands. Despite this, I still adore working amber and thought it would be very cool to see an insect inclusion in a traditional piece of body jewelry.

This backless charm in 14kt yellow gold with a combined bezel and prong setting showcases an approximately 24 million-year-old flying insect from the Chiapas region of Mexico. It's got incredible detail, with veins in the wings still visible and legs present. 

I carved the amber as thin as I felt comfortable and did my best to center the inclusion relative to the open back. The backless setting allows maximum light to pass through for the best view of the ancient insect frozen in time.

Dendrite is the 2020's iteration of the body jewelry company Onetribe, created in 2003 by founder and lead maker Jared Karnes (that's me). Dendrite was known primarily for innovative body jewelry lapidary work and ear weight designs. We produced several Association of Professional Piercers conference "Innovator Award" pieces, such as the Ghost in the Shell ear weights, Topo ear Weights, and Cryst ceramic body jewelry displays.

I can no longer make jewelry due to extensive hand/arm injuries sustained as a production stone carver, so this website has become a showcase of work from my fantastic peers. I hope you enjoy it :)
