"PULLED FROM NATURE"

Creating unique and timeless pieces of jewelry utilizing parts from nature led us on a five year journey to develop our special and labor-intensive “Pulled from Nature” process. Striving to fabricate engagement rings and wedding bands that look like you could have stumbled across them on a spring hike, gives our Elegant World line it’s “real” and natural look. At one time the original inspirations for these pieces were living trees, acorns, and leaves. Through our research, experimentation and tool development we have meticulously honed our craft to replicate these natural works of art.
