This elegant bracelet, with its single rectangle of polished gold, is modern and refined, and adds a subtle glimmer of light to the wrist it graces, making it the perfect everyday accessory. The central bar, cast in 14 karat yellow gold, measures 1/2" wide and 1/4" deep, making it large enough to be engraved with initials or a short word. It is suspended from a delicate 6 3/4" chain in matching 14 karat yellow gold.
Echo Park, Los Angeles, designer Kristen Elspeth fell in love with the process of jewelrymaking at the age of ten, when she took a Native American beadworking class, and has been refining her craft ever since. Her collection is a study in elegant minimalism and simplicity, and is designed to subtly accentuate the wearer's natural beauty. Working primarily in 14 karat gold and sterling silver, Elspeth creates pieces that play with simple geometric forms, particularly the circle and the line. To Elspeth, the circle represents the perfect harmony of the natural world, while the line represents humanity's attempt to translate that sense of perfection. Every piece the designer creates embodies a pared down, modern aesthetic that lends it a sense of purity.
