My name is August Hess, and I'm the creator and owner of Wild Moth Jewelry.

For many years of my life, moths have been a personal totem creature, as they've come to me as an omen at opportune moments. I know not everyone believes in this kind of thing, but I've had no choice but to wonder.

I make my jewelry for women who thrive in the artistry of cities and communities, yet also seek to remain connected to nature and their innate ability to navigate their surroundings. Decorating ourselves with jewelry is a statement to being alive: we are the eyes of the Universe. We are nomads of mystery. Like moths, we will continue to follow star-maps and heavenly bodies because we recognize our original home. These star-maps are in our DNA. If we keep following our inner passion, we can never be lost in this world.
