1. Balance Ring from Untamed Hearts
Crafted in Weehawken, NJ, every piece of jewelry by Untamed Hearts has meaning behind it. The inspiration for the Balance Ring: A line can divide, and it can bridge; where you draw your lines is what defines you. Welded and polished by hand, this striking ring is made of high-quality, anti-allergic zinc alloy and plated with a thick coat of high-grade silver.
2. Teardrop Cherry Wood Earrings from GioGio Design
These unusual Teardrop Earrings are so lightweight, you won’t even notice you’re wearing them — but everyone else will! The earrings are laser-cut from cherry wood veneer and hand-finished in Port Jefferson, NY. They’re part of GioGio’s Classical Collection, which is inspired by architectural ornamentation found in neighborhoods and cities around the world.
3. Sister Friend Word Pendant from Everyday Artifact
Thoughtful, poetic, personal: Handcrafted in Santa Fe, NM, Everyday Artifact’s sterling silver pendants display inspirational words (like the one shown above) and detailed images (of an oceanfront, elephant, rock cairn, and more). The pendants are finished with resin, which protects the image, and comes on a nylon cord with sterling clasps.
