Combining the worlds of jewelry and lepidoptera, James Banks has created a stunning, meticulously hand-fabricated specimen from the world of butterflies. Inspired by the fluttering, graphic and natural beauty of the Tawny Raja butterfly, he has echoed its form and colors in 14K rose gold and oxidized sterling silver. The articulated wings attach to the rose gold body which hangs from a bale set with a tiny ruby. The pendant hangs from the 14K rose gold chain with a hand-made closure and can be stored in its wooden box with a small map of its habitat when not in flight around your neck.

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?’
