Inspired by an Unnamed Merchant traveling along the ancient Silk Road, this collection draws upon materials native to key trading points along the journey. It incorporates natural stones and beading from far-flung continents bridged by these tireless travelers. This necklace combines dark red-green bloodstone with gold plated brass Bali cube beading, finished with antique African brass beading and a pyrite closure.
In 2013, designer Lisa Salzer launched this unisex jewelry collection entirely handmade in NYC. The line has gained significant recognition for continued collaboration with menswear designer Michael Bastian.
