is inspired from walks in the woods on a Fall day. Sandrine collected acorns and twigs while she was on spiritual retreats in New York and Canada, casted the pieces, and married them together using the ancient technique of lost wax casting.

Sandrine B. Jewelry

A Note from Sandrine

French-born, I’ve lived in the United States since 1996. I’ve always made a place for art in my life and found my calling in 2008, when I attended a jewelry show in Arizona and discovered the craft of jewelry making. In 2012, I launched Sandrine B. Jewelry.

My jewelry reflects the moments of life that speak to me wherever I happen to be - whether in my hometown of New York City, in my travels, or at my childhood homes in Lyon, France and Corsica.

I like to infuse a story into each piece I make and then name the piece after what it represents to me, whether that’s a person, something in nature, or a place. I think of this process as memorializing an imprint in time.

When I’m not creating jewelry, I’m a children’s lawyer in New York City. I choose to donate a portion of my profits to No Kid Hungry, an organization that’s committed to ending child hunger in the United States.

I practice mindful meditation and enjoy traveling to different ashrams in the United States, Canada, and India. An ashram - translated from Sanskrit āśrama as ‘hermitage’ - is a place for practicing yoga and meditation to evolve and grow spiritually. During my travels, I’ve collected objects at these ashrams - like twigs and jasmine flowers - that I enjoy incorporating into my work. I approach my craft with a complete presence of being, and I infuse spirituality into my jewelry.

I want my customers to feel beautiful and unique - and to know that each piece was created with intention and love.
