Perfectly Imperfect: Alkemie Jewelry

Perfection is for the fearful, the boring, the uncreative, or at least that’s what I tell myself as I rush out the door in yet another outfit cobbled together from the clean pile of laundry. As it turns out, I’m in fashionable company with my embracing of imperfection. Jewelry design newcomer Alkemie (I’m a sucker for a phonetically spelled name) employs this same aesthetic (albeit in a more deliberate, elegant, and fully-realized fashion), creating rough-hewn yet glamorous pieces from “reclaimed” metals. At once utterly modern and timelessly cool, Alkemie’s Stingray Cuff has all the makings of a signature piece.
