Enchanting Forest

On the island of Maui, Hawaii, within dense rainforest bustling with life, rainbow eucalyptus trees shine in vibrate oranges, blues, and greens. Awed by her experience visiting this magical "painted forest," Emilie Shapiro created a bold cuff inspired by the enormous, colorful trees. Respectfully leaving the gorgeous bark of the eucalyptus in the painted forest, Emilie instead replicated its texture using a mold of a piece of birch in her Queens, New York, studio. Each handmade piece is cast by placing radiant aquamarine emerald gems in her mold and then letting molten nickel-free, recycled brass form around the stones. Wear it as a reminder that nature's beauty is all around us, from vast forests in remote places to the trees in our own hometowns. 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."
