Whimsical yet elegant is how we describe the jewelry designed by Michele Benjamin. Using life forms from nature, she creates artisitic pieces that invoke smiles, interested glances and the occasional, who’s is that? Michele shares some thoughts about her work: “By abstracting life forms found in nature and interpreting them in an artistic way, I symbolize and realize the shapes and patterns into nature-themed jewelry that are enjoyable for people to wear. People often remark about the “fun factor” of wearing anyone of my designs.”
Michele uses different precious metals such as sterling silver and gold and rose gold ensuring a color and look for even the most discerning fashionista. Each piece is hand finished at her studio in New York City. Available exclusively online at http://www.michelebenjamin.com. Read on from Luxury Travel Diary:
If you are looking for a cute gift for yourself or your loved ones, maybe an intricate silver or gold pendant inspired by nature that will put a smile on your face in the morning… Michele Benjamin Jewellery offers just that. I chose to feature these sparkly pendants simply because I love their substantial size and the fact that they are handmade. Forget cheap miniscule pendants, when you wear one of Michelle’s pieces, their substantial size and unique content really stand out. I love the star fish, it is such a pleasing shape and such an unusual pendant.
Michelle’s designs are inspired by love of fine art and the natural environment, including bees, butterflies, angelfish, hummingbirds, tortoises, dragonflies, starfish, seahorses, and more. All of these forms add beauty and significance to the enrichment of the human experience. Michele equates forms found in nature to the timeless art that she observes in the great museums of the world. The bee, the company trademark, represents activity, industry and creativity. Animal-themed designs in the collection contain symbolism that refers to strong, positive, earth origins.
Pieces are designed in Sterling Silver, 18K Gold Vermeil, and 18K Gold Plated Collections. All her jewelry is produced in New York City, and is distinct in artistic quality because each piece is handcrafted with care in her studio. The jewelry gets noticed from a distance and people often remark about the “fun factor” of wearing the designs. The symbolism of the animal themes relates to a personal story, symbol or memory of a celebration, vacation or milestone in one’s own personal life.
