Ellen Himic is definitely a fresh face in the industry, just launching her second season, she has already begun to develop an aesthetic that is completely unique and clearly associated with her personal style as both a designer and a brand. Heavily influenced by historic architecture, antique sculpture and symbolic objects, Himic's collection is incredibly detailed in a way that you don't normally see with today's jewelry. She is definitely bridging the gap between contemporary and fine jewelry, using a select mix of semi-precious and precious stones set in a variety of metals to complete her handcrafted works of art.
