Introducing Alkemie to Mr & Mrs Smith

Forged from 100% reclaimed metals, husband-and-wife design team Ashley Lowengrub & Dara Gerson's unique jewelry is equal parts art and accessory.  By creating new designs from existing materials in abundance, Alkemie’s mission is to translate something that would otherwise be landfill-bound into wearable art.
Capturing and reinterpreting texture from soft organic forms into lustrous metal is an integral part in Alkemie's design philosophy.  An Alkemie cuff, ring or necklace first starts with an inspiration- a leaf, a starfish, or a one of a kind vintage piece. To replicate the texture and dimension of an object, the designers cast through a lost wax process, playing with the design, and discovering different light dimensions and form. The design process is then culminated in the final casting of the form in a solid piece of reclaimed metal.  An Alkemie piece is an artistic manifestation reflecting the incredible depth and life of natural textures and objects.
Alkemie Jewelry is a brand that pioneers with hopes to change the jewelry industry with its social and environmentally responsible practices. They have earned a devoted international following based not only on the originality of their designs, but their leadership as a socially and environmentally progressive company.  Alkemie promotes local living wage and eco-sustainable business practices.
All Alkemie designs are Lead & Nickel Free.  We patina our pieces to make them appear as though they came out of a treasure chest!  If you wish to shine, brush with warm water and bleach-free natural soap.

Snake Vertebrae with Vintage Chain Earrings 

Snakes have been a fundamental part of Alkemie's line since the inception.   The quality of transformation that they represent we find fundamental to being designers. We hope that these earrings inspire you to embrace the inevitable quality of transformation of the snake!   Vintage chains are sourced from Japan.

Owl Chain with Hawk Claw Necklace

The sun is said to live through the Owl’s eyes at night, allowing the owl to see better at night. May this necklace with it’s many owls inspire you too see in the darkness and find the wisdom inside. We found the claw on the end of the chain on the side of the road. Out of reverence we cast it into one of the features of our line.

Swords were designed so that one side turns heavenward, the other side turns earthwards. This is said to be symbolic of the powerful connection between sky and earth, and further solidifying the symbolism of life and death.

Talon holding Druzy Crystal with Long Thin Tooth Necklace 
Ancient Japanese believed druzies formed from the breath of a white dragon, and regarded them as representing perfection.  The Talon holding the Crystal imbues this element, while the Long Thin Tooth brings forth the idea of this ancient wisdom.  Every precious Druzy Crystal is one-of-a-kind. All pieces are hand made in Los Angeles. Forged from 100% reclaimed metal.  

Dara and Ashley’s motivation to live environmentally and socially conscious really comes from exemplifying responsibility to their daughters.
