The Inspiration

This collection is inspired by the sometimes-dark, always-brilliant novels and short stories of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hawthorne's works ask big questions:

  • What are the effects of sin, and how do we find redemption?
  • What is our relationship, with all our human skill, knowledge, and artifice, to the natural world?
  • What are the risks and the rewards of loneliness and of love?

Each design in this collection tells a visual story. Wear one, and let its meaning inspire you to live out your own story with joy and confidence.

Volume 1 of the collection focuses on two of Hawthorne's novels, The House of the Seven Gables and The Marble Faun. Some of the necklaces, bracelets, and earrings in this installment are based on central characters from these works; others draw upon important chapters, moments, or scenes. Each piece marries beauty and wearability to meaning.

Don't just be adorned by your jewelry. Be moved by it.
