The We Are Here collection incorporates rough cut stones, enamels & recycled metals to create organic jewelry that's both bold and romantic. The pieces are inspired through the creative process and the ever-changing surroundings of nature, travel and home.
Emilie Shapiro is a traditionally trained metalsmith who uses contemporary techniques and experimentation to guide her through her work. Working mainly in recycled silver, bronze, nickel-free brass & copper, she also uses gemstones for their transcendant qualities. Emilie considers herself an alchemist - instilling value, ideas and ideals into her pieces for the wearer to carry on. All of her work is hand crafted in her studio in New York City.
