The union of art and craft—imagination and application—is something that has always been important to us. We never want to follow trends, as trends are fleeting and will ultimately make your art quickly seem dated or anonymous. Our jewelry has to look as fresh in ten or fifty years as it does today. What might look great now could look cheap or cliché in the very near future. So rather than just make jewelry, we aim to craft works of art that will stand the test of time, and that will remain a part of your life as trends change, styles evolve, and your life experience leads you to see the world in new ways.
In this way, we’re creating heirlooms for you and your family. But for a piece of jewelry to become an heirloom, you first have to love how it looks. It has to resonate with you in some way. We believe that as long as our designs come from the heart, they will find a place in yours.
To do this, we approach jewelry design as an art and a craft. It’s one thing to have a great idea, but you also need the craft to execute it. Art is the transformation of experience into an object, whether a painting, a poem, a film—or a piece of jewelry. It comes from being present in every moment, opening yourself to receive inspiration, and finding meaning in even the smallest things. We are always looking for little sources of joy in life, and we transform that joy into something we can share with you through our jewelry.
Craft is the work that goes into that transformation: the skills, the tools, the application of knowledge, and training. Our jewelers are always learning. No matter how good you are, there’s always something more to learn! When you’re first starting out, the amount of things you need to learn in any field is overwhelming. When you get a little experience under your belt, you might start to feel like you know everything. But true masters of a craft know that despite all of their knowledge and experience, they know only a fraction of what’s out there, and they never stop studying and learning from every situation. That’s what it takes to craft a jewel that looks great now, can be worn for any occasion and will be cherished by future generations.
Our jewelry is crafted for everyday wear, to be a part of your life. But it’s also crafted to last a lifetime—many lifetimes, we hope, as that special piece is handed down from generation to generation, with all of your family’s memories intact.
