the coral beads necklace in silver
This necklace is part of a collection inspired from the winter fruit, dates. The sterling silver ring shank is made from a casting of dates branches. In place of the dates I added bamboo coral beads harvested from dead coral in Japan .
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.Brand page
