Naturally Precious

    The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents Naturally Precious.

     
    Nature is an abundant source of inspiration for many jewelry designers, but newcomer Brooke Kanani Sachs takes actual elements from the forest and beach and casts them in 18-karat gold settings with diamond and gemstone accents to create her one-of-a-kind pieces. The jeweler’s seedpod ring, for instance, is an actual seed she treated for durability, set with a baguette diamond center, and framed on a gold band. “The juxtaposition of these objects with the refined qualities of precious metals and stones is a way of paying homage to nature in a way that I truly see fit,” says Sachs, who trained for four years with an old-world craftsman where she learned the traditional lost wax method of casting. She continues to make each piece of jewelry from start to finish from her Hopkinton, R.I., studio.

    In addition to natural resources, elements in nature also inspire designs. “I am intrigued by the anthropomorphic quality of trees, the ripples in the sand that are left behind by the waves or wind, bones, shells, rocks, horseshoe crabs, seedpods, birds, animals, and many other things that we tend to take for granted in our demanding lives,” she says. Her pieces start at $400 in sterling silver and range to $10,000 for items in 18-karat gold. (401.714.5172, www.brookekanani.com )
