About Vug Jewels

Vug Jewels, formerly Dead Things by Sarah, are designed by Sarah Moeding. Based out of Louisville, KY, Sarah creates unique, often one of a kind pieces that are made with a wide variety of semiprecious stones, vintage and new chains, and ethically sourced bone materials. Dead Things by Sarah was founded in 2013. The name change in May of 2019 reflects a move away from a collection largely made with bone, in favor of a balanced one with many materials.

What does “vug” mean? A vug is a crevice in a rock, that, over time, fills with crystals, forming new stone that differs from the external rock. A geode is a vug. The geode is the whole object, the vug the internal crystal.
