We’re big believers in opposites attracting and more than a little in favor of bohemian earthiness mixed with a healthy dose of glam. So you’ll understand in an instant why we were taken in a glance by the Sabi Collection, a line of jewelery made by artist Jill McKeown using found wood pieces from specific locations and mixed with metals and chains.
Available at Circle & Square, necklaces ($70-$120) are available in series that carry the names of places where their materials were found. We’re especially enamored of the Bufalo 7, which hails from Buffalo, NY, for its clean shape and high-shine brass chain accent, as well as the dark imperfection of the Jersey Wood necklace and the glossy metallic sheen of the Boca Wood pendant.
A quietly luxe twist on the natural world, McKeown’s necklaces are the result of her science-meets-design background bolstered by degrees in both architecture and biology.
To view more of her work and scope fresh independent style by emerging artists and designers, visit Circle and Square online or in person at the Presidio Heights showroom (344 Presidio Ave., SF.).
