Christine J. Brandt
If the phrase “Zen bling” seems like an oxymoron, it's probably because you haven't set eyes on designer Christine J. Brandt's supremely unique jewelry. The Japanese-born, Europe, Scandinavia, and United States-raised Brandt's insistence on keeping her materials as close to their organic form as possible means that the exotic woods—with equally dramatic-sounding names like amboyna burl and cocobolo—used in her necklaces and rings are hand-rubbed with oil, never varnished, and her precious and semi-precious stones (from amethyst to zoisite) remain in their own natural formations. This is no hippie chic accessorizing, however: Brandt works with oversize proportions (a ring can cover three fingers, a necklace pendant is the size of fist) and bold textural combinations that have a minimalist sartorial beauty in keeping with the jewelry's extraordinary artistry.
