Robin’s jewelry is made 100% by hand, making each piece one-of-a-kind and made-to-order. Her collection draws inspiration from classic costume jewelry silhouettes that were made in her family’s factory in Rhode Island. The semi-precious stones are hand-selected from small, family-owned businesses. The intention of the healing and metaphysical properties of all stones are thoughtfully considered throughout the design process. Each stone is “set” onto the leather with a hand sewn stitch that weaves the small beads, one by one, around the stone and through one another, known as a Peyote stitch. Inspired by Native American artwork and craft, this technique was learned on Robin’s travels around the country and has become the very foundation of her body of work.
