Celebrating the natural magnificence of the endangered Palos Verde Blue Butterfly native to Southern California, James Banks has created a captivating specimen hand-wrought in sterling silver. The finely detailed and articulated wings of 14K rose and white gold connect to the body and crown bale which is set with a teensy diamond. It hangs from a sterling silver chain and can be kept in its special hand-crafted wooden box with a map indicating its habitat when it is not being worn.

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?’
