For generations, Santa Fe, New Mexico, has inspired and moved people’s spirits in all aspects of creation. English writer D.H. Lawrence and his wife Frieda came to New Mexico in the early ‘20s upon an invitation from wealthy arts patron Mabel Dodge Lujan. Of his time here he sums up this enchanted place far better than most.
“I think New Mexico was the greatest experience from the outside world that I have ever had. It certainly changed me forever. Curious as it may sound, it was New Mexico that liberated me from the present era of civilization, the great era of material and mechanical development,” writes Lawrence.
“But the moment I saw the brilliant, proud morning shine up over the deserts of Santa Fe, something stood still in my soul, and I started to attend. There was a certain magnificence in the high-up day, a certain eagle-like royalty…”
I believe anyone who has gazed upon Santa Fe and her majestic horizon will feel stirred by the accuracy of those words. The poetry of this landscape is tangible. For it is here that so much art has been birthed — a world mecca of creation. And for this reason, it is no wonder that Santa Fe’s mysterious muse, too, has touched us. Our Santa Fe Charms Collection, handcrafted of turquoise, coral and pearl, is just one wearable expression that has come from our time here.
Designer Carolyn Pollack will tell you that an enchanted evening in this treasured city spoke to her and from this moment came this collection. “Here there is an artful approach to style that naturally balances boldness, sophistication, wit and elegance,” she says.
“Always the perfect pair, fiery red coral and romantic blue turquoise have long been the heart of Santa Fe’s vibrant lifestyle. Cultured pearl and golden brass add the perfect glow while under the starlit sky at the opera. The reversible charms add spirit through iconic, gallery inspired symbols of the southwest. Santa Fe Charms was designed to inspire you to express your uniquely beautiful, spirited style!”
