Germinate is evolving to integrate more offerings & in doing so, a new name was chosen to better represent the expansion.  While all core principles & designs remain, it will take a little time to transition, to incorporate new art work & updates on the site.



Rhizaecosm is a compilation of handcrafted wearable, functional & decorative art, coalescing natural, wild, symbolic, ancient, spiritual & bohemian elements. The collection includes jewelry, textiles, carving, home décor & apothecary. Rhizaecosm illustrates that functionality, aesthetics & sustainability can coexist by transforming natural, reclaimed, local, wildcrafted, organic & ethical materials.

Transcending gender & generations, the Rhizaecosm aesthetic appeals to those focused on eco-conscious natural living, seeking local, ethically & sustainably made wares, to individuals who surround themselves with functional & wearable art that has meaning & purpose.



RHIZAE meaning roots & COSM, signifying universe, embodies the principle that there is a correspondence between the various planes of being, between the macrocosm & microcosm, between celestial & terrestrial phenomena, that we are quantumly entangled, intimately linked, composed of stardust, that every action or inaction has an effect, thus bringing sacredness or intention into each moment, each act of creation, will influence our surroundings.
