Designer Feature: Satomi Studio & Playful Layering

Today, we're exploring Santa Cruz, California's Satomi Studio. Headed by designer Kristina Kada, the wide ranging collection is meticulously handcrafted. Each piece takes organic shapes and architectural forms into account, allowing natural beauty to shine through the unique and playful jewelry designs. 

As always, Brave Daughters practices intention when handpicking designers. We look for attention to process and detail, and a certain unnamable quality that makes each piece a keepsake and a tangible reminder of a special memory. We love how each brand complements our in-house collection, allowing for layering and stacking. But they're also special enough to be worn on their own, just like BD.

Find what pieces speak to your essence and spirit, since each design conveys a mood you can carry through any season.

Recently worn by Madison Bailey's character on Netflix's Outer Banks TV show, Satomi necklaces are perfect for encapsulating that care-free coastal spirit. 

Our favorites:

1. The Neon Yellow & Pink Cluster Pearl Necklaces are a young twist on the beautiful stacking effect of organically shaped pearls. Pair this with Brave Daughters 14k chain necklaces with your favorite charm for a warm but exciting look.

2. To balance your jewelry and textures, add the Plateau Brass Ring to your everyday collection. We love its natural grooves which give the metal a soft appearance as if nature made its own jewelry. If you like the more refined, classic look check out the timeless Round & Oval Brass Signet Ring. 

3. To ornament your Brave Daughters' versatile 14k gold chains, slip on Satomi's dainty charms! See the mushroom, skull, and heart charms. + Layer with the Love Gesture Necklace

4. And because we have all your accessories covered, don't forget to curate your ear jewelry. We love the adorable Gembok 'Padlock' Keyhole Earrings, especially complimented with their studs: Scarab, puffy Heart, Peace Gesture, & Love Gesture available in brass or sterling. For your everyday look, opt for a staple hoop: classic or with a unique twist. Small Hammered Hoops & Small Peak Hoops in sterling or gold fill.
