Talisman


Talisman Fine Jewelry was formed around the idea that “less is more.” By crafting minimalist designs that are my take on classic jewelry styles, the goal is to create a capsule collection of staples that can be worn every day. Simple and everyday, yet definitely statement-making. Imbued with my own artistic perspective, the collection has a decidedly wabi-sabi look and a substantial feel, with each piece handmade in recycled, solid 14k gold.

Much of the Talisman Fine Jewelry collection is hand carved and made using traditional lost wax casting techniques. Our daintier gold stud earrings and rings are hand fabricated by my dear friend, goldsmith Andrea Li. In addition to our minimalist 14k gold jewelry, I offer hand-sewn Talisman Pouch necklaces, which are an elevated version of the old leather medicine pouches I used to use. These are made on a smaller, more delicate scale that makes daily wear easy.  Featuring precious stones (ethically sourced whenever possible), reclaimed leather, and strung with the finest 14k gold Italian chain, they are luxurious sacred objects. As is the nature of handmade crafts, every Talisman piece is unique and special, with slight variations and a lot of love put into them. Wear them as everyday reminders of your own beauty, worth, and ultimate simplicity.
