Back & Better Than Ever

From your hair to your career, re-invention keeps life interesting. Emilie Shapiro's delicate raw ruby studs are inspired by the starfish, a sea creature notorious for comebacks. Their ability to regenerate makes them a symbol for resilience and growth (remind you of someone?). Set in brass, the rich red gemstones give off a subtle sparkle, making them wearable every day or for special occasions—like that new cropped bob. Handmade in New York.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“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."
