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 crafted 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 a recycled brass prongs to create a stunning work of wearable art. Unlike mining, the development is completely sustainable and leaves the precious crevices of our planet in tact. 18-inch recycled brass chain. 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."
