New Artisan: Chelle Kraus

Today we debuted a new line of jewelry at Greenjeans by Manhattan-based artisan Chelle Kraus.

Chelle makes substantial, highly wearable silver pieces including earrings cast from ginko leaves and cuff bracelets impressed with shells and trilobyte that look almost like fossils. My favorite piece is the "porthole" cuff bracelet -- it looks amazing on, chic and funky at the same time. Most of her pieces have an appealing brushed surface, and they are all beautifully crafted and thoughtfully designed. Prices range from $45-$220. We will be getting more in once they're ready, so stay tuned...

And as with most other things at Greenjeans, no one else in the NYC area has these pieces, so if you're still looking for a thoroughly unique gift for someone who has seen it all, Chelle's jewelry would be just the thing!
