John Michael Richardson, fashion jewelry designer, blends the cultures of the East and West to create a look completely his own. As he travels the world to discover new elements for his accessories, he relies on the traditional crafts of each particular country to convey his message: a card tells the story, a collectible for you. Metals are handcrafted in Thailand with etchings that bring unique detail to his work. He mixes the natural elements of horn, wood, bone, and shell, from Cebu, Philippines. From the United States, he uses metal stampings. He also decorates his pieces with glass beads from the Czech Republic. The collected items are plated, assembled, and finished by hand in the United States.
