Nature Relic Jewelry
The Accessories in Ruina by Sarah Swell Look Like Archeological Finds

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Nov 21, 12

The jewelry in the collection Ruina by Sarah Swell, a designer based in California, may have been inspired by nature, but they look like relics from an archeological dig. Worn, weathered and petrified, the pendents are full of character while hinting at a history that may be imagined but still offers a lot of depth. It is appropriate that Ruina means ‘ruin’ in Spanish.

Comprised of necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings, Ruina by Sarah Swell is made for the girl with an appreciation for all things rustic chic. Greatly influenced by a recent trip to Mexico, Swell reveals, “I became particularly interested in Mayan culture and ruins and visited more than a half-dozen sites while on my trip. I was so inspired by the intricate stone formations as well as the meaning and ritual behind them.”
