“ ed is the ultimate cure for sadness.”

— Bill Bl ass

The color red is evocative of many things: love, sensuality, passion and getting attention. Does getting attention ever go out of style? From lipstick to jewelry, red is most certainly a pick-me-up color — and when paired with stainless steel it makes a bold, yet simple fashion statement: “Take notice”. The brushed stainless steel jewelry collection has inlays that are hand-set by the designers. Red-hued inlays include natural coral (sourced from off-cuts of other industries), brightly stained bamboo (a renewable resource), and “washi” (Japanese paper traditionally used to fold miniature paper kimonos). Necklaces are available in various lengths while pendants are sold separately from chains and cords.

“ f keep a green bough in my hear t, then the singing bird will come.” — chinese proverb Green is soothing and fresh like nature. Or it can be intense and striking like jealousy.

“he woods are lovely, dark and deep.� — Robert Frost

Inspiration for the engraved wood collection comes from both the material and the process. Working with wood is an experience beyond the sight, touch and even smell. Nature provides this perfect medium for which an art can unfold — in this case, the engraving with a laser produces exquisite detail that can only be appreciated with all the senses. The brushed stainless steel jewelry collection features hand-set engraved wood inlays. Necklaces are available in various lengths while pendants are sold separately from chains and cords.

“e need not feel ashamed of flirting with the zodiac. he zodiac is well worth flirting with.� — DH Lawrence In the Chinese zodiac, each year in a 12-year cycle has a designated animal and it is said that those born of a specific year have personality traits and other attributes that are characteristic of their animal. The fun, chunky stainless steel pendants show off the animal you most identify with — whether you follow astrology or not. The solid stainless steel pendants feature illustrations straight from the designers’ sketchbooks. Pendants are sold separately from chains and cords.

“he goal of life is living in agreement with nature.� — Zeno

Did you know that all stainless steel manufactured in North America is made with recycled steel? All new steel has a minimum of 25% steel scrap, making it the most recycled material in North America. Pairing steel with other sustainable materials like bamboo and cork seems like an almost natural progression. Whenever possible, Blend Creations jewelry further extends this greener approach by incorporating off-cut and scrap materials for inlays (like the coral and natural mother of pearl), or by reclaiming unusual objects as part of the jewelry, (by using vintage mah jong tiles from incomplete game sets). The brushed stainless steel jewelry collection has hand-set inlays. Necklaces are available in various lengths while pendants are sold separately from chains and cords.
