EverGreen jewelry Studio
Our Evergreen Jewelry Studio inside an Evergreen Shipping Container! The Studio is located in Hubbard Texas(population 1423) which is a town that was founded in 1895 and became known for it's healing mineral springs! Hubbard is located just outside of Waco and is about 2 hours from Austin!
~While the Evergreen Studio itself is Solar Powered for electricity and off-grid too, getting its water from our rain catch cistern, a fun fact about Hubbard Texas is that they are now part of the Hubbard Wind Project with many Wind Turbines that are just outside the Evergreen, and can be seen dotting the Texas Praire land. The Evergreen is in Hill County and the wind produced when the project is complete will be a combined capacity of approximately 450 megawatts of clean, renewable energy! While wind turbines are not great on every level especially for Birds and Bats it is still better than a lot of what is happening in Texas..the climate change struggle here is real which is one of the reasons we are working to create this off-grid tiny way of life for ourselves in an effort towards our own sustainability!
~The Evergreen is located on 26 acres of land which was previously used for cattle ranching that we are rewilding back to the earth and plan to keep mostly wild prairie for all the deer, bobcats, coyotes, wild pigs, rabbits, that now reside here and also the many birds including the Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher which is why we call the land Camp Scissor-Tail.
Kyle and I now live in an 400 sq ft RV while we build our tiny Aircrete Dome home ....we are always striving to live in harmony with the earth and the native wildlife and in that effort we have 10 acres of undeveloped land that we have had designated as a Monarch Butterfly waystation for their annual migration through the area!
~As a little back history, in December of 2018 we ordered a shipping container and we were so happy when it was delivered that it was green which is my favorite color and also said EVERGREEN!I I felt this was a perfect name for this project as I am always hoping my jewelry is "evergreen" in that it is timeless and heirloom quality.
I love the recycled aspect of both the space and that I make my jewelry out of recycled metals aka "green"materials ...well it all seems like kismet!
~Kyle my amazing husband aka my BowerBird did all the amazing work building the inside which I documented and will continue to update all the studio news on our Instagram @SHOPEEVERGREENJEWELRY please follow us there for studio news and follow my Jewelry making journey @CROBINSONDESIGN xx
