Jewelry designer Lisa Kaufman of Korut Studio is inspired by the details. Working from her studio in the hills of Berkeley, California, Lisa begins each collection with eclectic bits and pieces spread over her worktable. As her collection develops, those inspirational details transform into jewelry that expresses feelings of iconic symbolism, and geometric, architectural impressions.
Korut's collection is a mix of the simple and grand. Pendants are rich with subtle detail. Signature pieces are designed using wax molds created with 3D printed models, as well as traditional carved wax methods. Pieces are then cast in bronze or sterling silver and hand polished to a bright shine. Smaller reproductions of world culture amulets round out the treasury with stackable/layer pieces to mix and match.
