ADORN HER WRIST
Silversmith Alexa Suess creates unique and intricate pieces from recycled fine metals and Kimberly Certified Diamonds, embracing the Japanese philosophy “wabi sabi,” which embraces imperfections and sees beauty in transience. She describes these constellation bangles as being reminiscent of the otherworldly tendrils of unknown galaxies, these three organic bangles feature a reverse oxidation process that highlights silver’s natural reflective properties and creates a star like texture.
REST YOUR GLASS
One-of-a-kind Kilim Coasters are the perfect holiday, hostess, and housewarming gifts. Individually cut from hand-woven vintage kilim, each coaster is entirely unique.

These coasters are made to be used, and will serve as an attractive yet functional conversation piece for years to come.
The benefits of natural ingredients bring peace of mind to body and soul.
