With meticulous detail and exceptionally detailed craftsmanship, James Brooks has created a pair of earrings with an enigmatic, refined simplicity. Each of the tiny Baby Asterope butterfly earrings is hand-wrought of 18K yellow gold. The small wings are hinged along the body and move to represent the tiny creatures in flight. Store them in its wooden box complete with a small map of their South American habitat when you are not wearing them.

New York / Los Angeles - The brilliant bicoastal collaboration between Adam Shulman and Heidi Nahser Fink has resulted in the magical collection of James Banks jewelry. Each meticulously hand-crafted piece is inspired by the natural world and its intriguing details as well as the eclectic and talismanic qualities of objects like the light bulb and monocle. The attention to detail is the captivating mainstay of this collection - from butterfly wings that move to a light bulb which opens and can be customized by adding tiny, symbolic objects and jewels. “We want people to get close, to get a conversation from it,” Shulman says. “We want them to come up to it and ask ‘What is that?’
