The jewel beetle, or Sternocera aequisignata, is a species of beetle belonging to the Buprestidae family. Historically, these vibrant wings were sewn into Victorian-era gowns, like sequins. They were farmed in Thailand- the shells collected after they died of natural causes. HBJ loves jewel beetle wings for their iridescence and vibrancy. 
Origins: Farmed in Thailand
Care: Jewel beetle wings are very delicate. Jewel beetle wing jewelry is typically backed with epoxy to help stabilize it, but they need to be handled with great care: no abrasive surfaces, knocking about, etc. It is an organic material, so avoid chemicals at all costs.

the story of vanity

Celebrating the often discouraged act of adorning oneself, the Vanity collection combines glamour with grit, and naturalistic curiosities with industrial elements. Growing up in a world that said a desire to be beautiful was vain, Hannah learned through time and her artwork that connecting to beauty is an ultimate form of empowerment. The one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces of the Vanity collection incorporate Hannah’s love of atypical gemstones and prong settings. The gemstones found in Vanity are hand-selected for their obvious beauty, but more often for what makes them more obscure: vibrancy in unexpected hues, garish silhouettes, and striking inclusions that deem them traditionally flawed. But it is through their perfect imperfections that Hannah is given a canvas to celebrate her love of making, design, beauty, and unbridled creativity. Contrasting delicacy with severity and subtlety with singularity, the Vanity collection is a love story to femininity and ardent self-love. Shop the full Vanity Collection
