Into the Fold

Though the Japanese art of folding paper may well be centuries old, you can't deny the modern look of these origami-inspired sterling silver necklaces. Featuring five beloved animals—from the sliest of foxes to the tallest, proudest penguin—each brings a bit of personality to your look, and Sue Beatrice's delicate handiwork ensures they appear as fine as folded paper. Subtle yet playful, they're a spirited addition to any jewelry box. Handmade in New York.

Sure, nature inspires Sue Beatrice’s designs, but it’s man-made creations that really turn her gears. The artist, who has worked for everyone from The Franklin Mint to Disney over three decades, seeks to explore what she calls “the spiritual connection between time and mortality” when creating wearable sculptures from former watch parts. (“I never destroy a watch that works!” she shares.) As she creates new heirlooms from old, she finds herself “thinking about the lives of the people who once owned the timepieces”—a process that helped her evaluate her life goals. Her products hold power over others, too: “Several people have burst into happy tears when seeing custom pieces designed just for them,” she says. “It's an amazing feeling to know your art has touched someone's heart like that.”
