Thinknow Jewelry Fuses Nature, Architectural Design

The structural put-togetherness of Thinknow's jewelry collection is no accident, happy or otherwise; Becky Ellis, the nascent company's CEO and designer-in-chief, also heads up architectural firm Think. Moving seamlessly from soaring glass-and-steel constructs to minuscule feats of engineering, Ellis coaxes the forms and geometries of nature from sustainably harvested or recycled wood and papers.

The wood veneers that make up Thinknow's necklaces and earrings are produced from rapidly renewable Italian poplar woods from managed agricultural plantations. Adhesives are water-based and non-solvent, while sealants comprise beeswax and citrus oil.

Fractal-like forms—in cherry, walnut or butternut—dangle fetchingly from gold-filled and silver sterling findings. If you desire an extra punch of color, you can choose from paper finishes in universally flattering hues like violet, merlot, patina green, and maize.

Divided into four collections: Structures, Organics, Language, and Patterns, Thinknow's effortlessly elegant baubles start at $35.
