Kar-Bn designer Kristin Ann Rudge believes the world’s most precious stones and metals belong alongside natural and found elements like beads and leather, bones and shells. This singular vision serves as the guiding philosophy for the jewelry’s Kar-Bn’s glam boho rock DNA.
Jewelry lovers know every piece tells a story. Here, every bead contains multitudes. Placed intermittently throughout a strand of African ostrich eggshell and Indian conch naga shell beads are six additional talismans, including a black rhodium silver pave rose cut diamond bead and roundel, a fresh water pearl, two prayer beads (one Ethiopian one black coral silver inlay), and a Malian ebony disc bead with silver inlay. A deeply spiritual offering.
