Sticks n’ Stones

Sticks and stones may break your bones but I promise, these twigs are going to warm your heart.

Okomido brings life to recycled precious metals and gemstones through their interpretation of nature’s masterpieces. These distinctive stackable twig rings are a brilliant example of their exquisite artisan pieces handcrafted using 18K rose gold, sterling silver and chocolate shakudo.

What is shakudo you ask? Shakudo is a Japanese metal coloring method of mixing a low gold content alloy with copper that achieves the beautiful chocolate colored metal featured in many of their designs.

Okomido’s commitment to the environment includes “no new mining” practices, instead, metals and gemstones are reinterpreted from vintage jewelry.

    A great concept, beautifully designed and crafted. Make the effort to see the complete line, which draws on natural inspirations while recycling old jewels and metals. Super
