Modern & Elegant Druzy & Crytal Jewelry by Lisa Brodzinski

Hawaii-based designer Lisa Brodzinski takes direct inspiration from her unique upbringing. Growing up as a first generation Korean-American, to a humbly brilliant father, and wicked-smart, entrepreneurial mother, Brodzinski found herself in the midst of individuality. Inspired by nature, life and the spirt of “aloha,” her jewelry reflects the a zest for life, color and beauty.

Composed of multi-colored druzy options, each piece is covered in a unique gold plating by a professional electroplater. The colorful choices reflect a romantic ideal of beauty and variety. Playing with highly saturated and quirky colors, such as fuchsia, aquamarine, and violet,  Brodzinski’s creations are an elegant and contemporary expression of jewelry design. The juxtaposition between a delicate gold chain and the natural and dyed druzy gemstones create a bohemian sensibility, which is irresistible at first sight. You can find her entire collection in her Etsy shop

I oxidized them :>

London blue topaz is one of my favorite stones and shades of blue, simply divine. They are accented elegantly with handmade silver findings (pmc), and tiny freshwater pearls.

The stones are petite, but of superb quality. Eye clean (no visible inclusions), wonderful shape, and beautifully matched

Gold “Basket” Earring

Byzantine, 6th century, made in Northern France (2.5 x 1.5 cm)

Opus interrasile was a technique used by goldsmiths to make elegant jewelry from the 200s through the 600s. Designs were traced onto sheets of gold; the background was punched with holes of various sizes to highlight the pattern; and fine details were then worked on the surface. The patterns formed by piercing the metal ground encouraged the play of light and shadow across an object’s surface.
