Alkemie Reclaimed Metal Amulets Made with Love in LA

WWD Centerfold grazing amazing husband/wife design team Alkemie creates adornments for the body, all constructed of 100% reclaimed metal. Every Alkemie piece is made by hand, with love, in Los Angeles.

I like this owl ring as “the owl has long been thought of as a symbol of wisdom & a symbol of the feminine.” Interesting, enchanted myths, and ancient stories accompany each elegant piece.

I also love this turtle bracelet and Alkemie explains that “the turtle is the oldest symbol for planet earth to be used in Native American Mythology. Thought to be a deep representation of Mother Earth the turtle shell is thought to add protection to anyone who uses it’s symbolism.”

Wear this earthy turtle talisman and feel connected to the planet. Alkemie brings this octopus back to life from a gorgeous old vintage piece of jewelry. Like the mythology of the turtle creation above, the octopus charm is inspired by magic and ancient tales.
