About Ostrĕa

Designed and carefully crafted by hand in North Carolina, Ostrĕa earrings are born from a desire to create powerful jewelry for powerful women.

Founder and artist Marisa Winston draws inspiration from her lifelong love of the sea, weaving the textures, colors and movement of the ocean throughout her work.⁠ Each pair of one-of-a-kind earrings is slow-made with meticulous attention to detail and a touch of magic. 

 

A Note from the Artist

 

Hi! I'm Marisa, the woman behind Ostrĕa. I'm also a mother, wife, and fierce advocate for women's health.

Ostrĕa (pronounced os-tray-ah) means 'oyster' in Latin. Just as oysters transform grit into pearls, Ostrĕa is about transformation.⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀
⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀
I design these earrings so that the instant you put them on, you feel a little more...⁠⠀
⁠⠀
confident⁠⠀
powerful
beautiful⁠⠀
⁠⠀
a little more...like 𝘠𝘖𝘜⁠⠀

This name serves as a daily reminder of the power we have to fully be ourselves. My hope is that it will remind you of that, too.
