restraint and proportion.

Ever since we laid eyes on Brook&Lyn’s bewitching “Deflected” collection, we were taken by the brand’s unexpected and original approach to jewelry design. Combining natural materials with bold shapes, their work gracefully walks the line between delicate and strong, such that we see our own femininity reflected in its construct.

Their latest “Medaled” collection, for instance, places a large plated brass circular pendant on black or natural cord. Available in a few iterations – gold yellow or rhodium plated, featuring a trio of pendants or as a bracelet – the design is marked by its dramatic simplicity, consistent with their portfolio. Basic shapes, suspended at precise length from the neck or each other, demonstrate Brook&Lyn’s mastery of both restraint and proportion. Less is indeed more… except when it comes to the number of their pieces we own!

Though established in NYC, Brook&Lyn has always conjured the expansive quality and earthen palette of the west coast. Fitting, then, that the wife and husband proprietors have recently decamped for LA. To celebrate their new city, the duo have collaborated with a series of native artisans to produce Los Angeles inspired wares, from beautiful, unfussy ceramic ponytail barrettes by JuJuMade to richly detailed wood print silk scarves by Jayne Min, the blogger behind Stop It Right Now. The brand is hitting a creative highpoint, and we look forward to their continued success in Cali.
