Sabi Collection by Jill McKeown

I launched Sabi Collection in May of 2012. I am attracted to natural materials. They have inherent beauty, just by virtue of their existence in nature. I love the unrefined perfection in wood, in all forms. That may, in a way, be a means of understanding my very disorganized (yet desperate for order) personality. There is a very elegant (dis)order in the way wood weathers and ages.

The wood that is collected and used in the jewelry is personified in my mind. Each piece has a life cycle. I do not know what the wood was used for (or not) in the past, but it has been found it at some point in its life. The wood is transformed as it becomes a piece of jewelry. The process of multiplying the raw wood into a family of pieces is done in a way that respects, even embraces, its natural imperfections. Then, the addition of things which offset the rustic nature of the wood are worked into the design: bright chain, color, etc. I am a strong believer that good design is always balanced. The most impactful objects, fashions, spaces are those which utilize two contradictory aesthetic techniques: a crystal chandelier above a rustic table, edgy spikes juxtaposed with sweet pearls, a clean and modern home on a jagged mountain; the list goes on. Sabi Collection attempts to achieve this balance. Read More »
