Giving New Life to Old Treasures © Aymala Studio
Amy Kawadler's jewelry collections at Adorn Reborn in Santa Fe, New Mexico are snapshots of the past with an eye to the future: a bridge connecting her personal adventures to the art of adornment.
“It's a deep pleasure sourcing, designing and building modern heirlooms with treasured objects from another time. By extending the lifecycle of these finds, it honors the embodied energy it took to originally create them, as well as the individual pieces’ spirit and journey. I get to breathe in new life and so ... their journey continues. I think of these jewels as truly renewable resources of both joy and beauty; that contributes to a happier, more sustainable future.”
Her one-of-a-kind Adorn Reborn studio practice incorporates her uniquely sourced materials with ideas that are sparked by her tactile and visceral responses to the elements she is considering. Each Adorn Reborn piece begins a narrative for the wearer, as they create their own story to pass down.
Adorn Reborn jewelry is collected and worn worldwide.
