These modern, minimal earrings by Isabel Borland not only deliver a hint of saturated color, they also have a distinctive, style-defining design. Striated drops of deep green malachite dangle from the ends of the graceful hand-fabricated 18K gold ear wires. Sculptural and stark, these are a cool, contemporary pair of earrings you can dress up or down.

Austin, TX - Isabel Borland explores organic, balanced, essential forms, and the beauty and flexibility of precious metals and natural gemstones. She takes a minimalist approach and her design process is largely reductive, stripping away any details that feel superfluous or redundant. The line is all hand-carved (the bracelets from a single block of wax) and hand-finished, and she embraces the delicate marks, textures and irregularities that make each piece unique - designed to stand alone or to be layered and collected over time, mixing metals, patinas and gems. Isabel does not sign her jewelry, but leaves traces of the sprues as a nod to the process. This is her signature "X", and she hopes each piece becomes the signature of the person who will wear and enjoy it for many years.
