Megan Thorne

Fort Worth, TX

Before setting diamonds and gemstones, Megan honed her creative eye as assistant designer of a fine lingerie brand. Elegant laces and trims danced in her mind, but her hands craved another medium, and through serendipity found her way into goldsmithing. There, amongst the torches, files, fire and grit, she discovered an unexpected way to bring her delicate dreams to life. A feminine thread ribbons though to unify a remarkable depth of collection and to encircle the studio's reverence for the art of metalsmithing. The collection is handcrafted in recycled 18k yellow, rose, and white gold and with ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones. 

 
 

Kothari 

Oakland, CA

Exposure to beautiful jewelry occurred very early in life for Tej Kothari. Watching his mother evaluate beautiful antique jewelry with her keen eye for design is a prevalent childhood memory and he was always by her side as she grew her passion into a successful jewelry venture. 

Kothari was established in 2009 after Tej honed his skills designing jewelry under his mom's tutelage. His designs are based on the details and proportions of beautiful antique jewelry viewed through a lens of modern and minimalist sensibility under a filter of nature and its tiniest wonders. The stones are custom cut or hand selected and primarily set in 18k gold. The joy of wearing a Kothari design is enduring as the design aesthetic lends to a timeless elegance.

Sakamoto

Los Angeles, CA

Eddie Sakamoto, a third generation Japanese American, appeared on the jewelry scene in Los Angeles in 1979. It was an exciting and innovative time as there was a resurgence of interest in uniqueness and quality. A "new" designer movement was to begin. 

A self-described minimalist, Eddie's challenge is to create jewelry where less is more. Platinum and 18K yellow gold take on strongly sensual shapes. They curve, bend, and arc gracefully. Both feminine and masculine in form, his work embodies the yin/yang.
