A Stunning Experiment

It's hard to believe that the intense pigment of these gemstones didn't come from deep within the earth. Rather, they're created through a unique process in which an emerald's natural elements are baked in a pressure cooker for 11 months. When the lid comes off, the stones are sourced by designer Emilie Shapiro and set in recycled brass prongs to create a face-framing work of art. Unlike mining, the development is completely sustainable and leaves the precious crevices of our planet in tact. Each piece will vary slightly due to the uniqueness of the crystals. Handmade in New York City.

“A goal is just a dream without a deadline.”

There was never a moment that Emilie Shapiro didn't consider herself an artist. "Before I could speak I expressed myself through what I made with my hands," she says. "I am so incredibly lucky that my parents allowed me to pursue life on the path I chose." That path led to a line of jewelry comprised entirely of one-of-a-kind pieces she crafts by combining her metalsmithing skills with her love of found objects. "I have a massive stone collection that I started when I was two," says the New York City resident. "I usually pull out my drawers of gems and minerals and something catches my eye that I haven't seen before or forgot about." When Emilie creates a piece, she says she imagines the wearer seeing a reflection of themselves in it—“beauty in imperfection."
