Ensemble Necklace
 

I don’t know how long we stay that way, but we watch the sun go down together.

 The giant, burnt-orange sphere sinks towards the horizon,

coloring the rock layers until it’s gone

 and the canyon is covered in shadow.

― Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

Solvere Key

The Artist is no other than he

who unlearns what he has learned,

in order to know himself.

― E.E. Cummings

Hyperion Tassels
In Greek literature, Hyperion was ascribed the characteristics of the “God of Watchfulness, Wisdom and the Light.”  Seems he was the first to understand the movement of the sun, moon and stars and that the seasons are caused by these celestial bodies. Thanks Heavens for this deity. To help us channel some of Hyperion’s wisdom, we created a group of unabashedly indulgent silken ornaments.

 

Choose your favorite tassel (or tassels) from seven different colors of sumptuous silk floss. Each tassel is held together and bound with a grand brass band (featuring a large Swarovski crystal in a matching shade to that of its respective tassel) and waiting very patiently for you to add it (or them, if you feel decadent) to your favorite chain or necklace.

 

Once you’ve done this? Put your necklace on, Hyperion Tassel in full effect, and do something delicious.

Transformative Dragonfly

The next thing you make will be different.
You stand in the field not yet being
struck, talking to nothing, jagged
& unsure. You knew this
when you started the experiment; you wanted
to be changed & you were—

―Brenda Hillman

The first peek at Waxing Poetic F/W 2016 is here, and I am delighted to share!
Our incredibly talented friend, actress and Broadway dancer Allie Meixner is stunning in our new collections (and she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside). It is pure joy to work with such a brilliant soul to bring our work to life. Brave, graceful and Poetic through and through.
There are so many new favorites from this release, it is hard to choose one amongst standouts like Periphery, Hyperion, Nightaire, and Wandering Star (and check out the tassels and chain intros – I just love how these are crafted and equally love wearing them)! And new additions to Melange and Kristal that are pure expressions of what we do best.
A long design process — and lots of intricate workings — is now finally realized (and always as rewarding as the process itself). We love what we do and really had a lot of fun with this one… I do hope you enjoy!
