Alkemie Jewelry is forged from only relcaimed metals, as well as leather from a cattle ranch dedicated to zero waste.
The USA-made pieces of Alkemie’s current line, “The Maiden Voyage” is a nod to the sophisticated organic contours of the Art Nouveau style, and to nature’s most awesome creatures and their mythical counterparts. The circle-laden necklaces and earrings bring a vintage sensibility to the classic hoop earring and drop-pendant.
Where Art Nouveau and nature meet, for Alkemie, is a ripe intersection of conscious consumerism and artistic collaboration, eschewing the toxic-filled world of the gold minining industries.
Alkemie’s cuffs are a standout of “The Maiden Voyage” line, the bold gold wristpieces capturing stunning creaturely motifs from octopi, bats and owls to peacocks and Egyptian scarabs.
The husband-and-wife team, Dara Gerson and Ashley Lowengrub, are forging forth in the world of Eco-bling on the power of their potent, vintage and organic aesthetic.
