Jewelry by Elke Kramer

This post is a testament to the incredible power of product packaging. Before I’d even seen the jewelry inside these cases (which were previewed in a tweet from Leif owner, Stacey), I knew I wanted to own them. If for nothing else than to have those gorgeous little boxes in my hands. Then when I saw the jewelry inside — and loved it as much as the packaging — I felt doubly excited. These spectacular jewelry designs (and boxes) are from Australian jewelry designer Elke Kramer. Kramer has managed to master both of my jewelry weaknesses: adorable packaging that’s as cute as the baubles inside and jewelry that feels equal parts sculpture and decoration. Working with a custom-crafted resin that resembles different stones and minerals, Elke crafts pieces that feel like miniature modern sculptures for your hands and ears. That double-sided ring below is my favorite, but you can check out and shop the full series right here. And those boxes? Don’t toss those in the trash; they’re almost as beautiful as the jewelry inside. (Prices range from $62 to $98 for these pieces.) xo, grace


She has unparallel taste and sense of design… Eventhough the materials are not what you would call “noble” (she even uses real concrete for god’s sake!) , her jewellery is so precious, in the way they are designed. Even the packaging is part of the experience. Amazing.


Those are some really cool pieces! Anyone know how I can contact Elke to talk about carrying items in my store?
