Jewelry should be magical. It should represent the highest level of craft one can achieve. The natural materials we use, whether gemstone or precious metal, should be treated with the highest level of respect. They are, after all, finite and rare objects procured from the earth. This alone makes them precious.
The Human Element
Too much jewelry is a product of the computer, placing technological convenience over heart, resulting in pieces lacking soul and depth. Good design is not embedded within pre-formatted software. Every piece in our Earthwise Jewelry®Collection is borne from Joanne’s hand-drawn sketches and from Brian’s technical knowledge of fabrication techniques. A machine cannot duplicate the natural grace of an object crafted by hand. The human element in jewelry can never and should never be replaced.
A Tradition of Craftsmanship
Our design philosophy is simple. A focus on beauty and craft with an abiding concern for the individual. For us, jewelry must be thoughtfully designed and meticulously crafted using the finest materials that are obtained responsibly from partners who share our commitment to the global community and to the environment. Each step in the production process is guided by traditional jewelry techniques learned in Europe by previous generations almost a century ago. Our Earthwise Jewelry® collection is the product of this belief.
