Nature inspired sculptural design is a signature of Annette Ferdinandsen. These lotus roots are in white mother of pearl and surrounded by 14k yellow gold. We love the beachy, summer vibe. They are dramatic and wearable at the same time. And surprisingly light weight.

Working from her upstate New York studio, Annette Ferdinandsen's handcrafted organic creations are influenced by nature, her travels and surroundings. Her father and grandfather were both model makers for renowned Danish sculptors. Ferdinandsen followed her lineage and attended the Rhode Island School of Design studying sculpture. This background in sculpture has influenced how important form is in her work...subtle curves and movements are signatures of her pieces. An interesting side fact, Annette was David and Ron's, the designers behind Ten Thousand Things, first employee over 20 years ago.
