Defendo – “Organic Silver” with Russian charoite. Pendant, 2.5 in high.
Carina Rossner focuses on incorporating earth’s beautiful creations into wearable art. She recycles sterling silver and gold and either free-form melts it – letting the physical properties of the molten metal determine its shape and texture – or uses it to cast organic elements like flowers and leaves. Carina selects the mineral and stone specimens carefully so that they complement the setting. She sources, trims, and polishes the stones to highlight their crystal structure and natural beauty. Just like nature, each of her creations is a one-of-a-kind design. Her collections include pendants, rings, wrist cuffs, brooches, cuff-links, belt buckles, and custom pieces. Part of the Purple Majesty Collection. Retail Cost: 175
