See Real Flowers is designed and made in Los Angeles by Elena Chien. The collection draws on traditions of handmade jewelry in both the design, and the use of simple natural materials like leather, shell, stone, and wood. Many of the pieces are talismanic - filled wild California sage, Tulsi wood, or small ocean pebbles collected by Elena from the Pacific Ocean. They are meant to bring calm, clarity, or protection to the wearer. See Real Flowers is a balance of simplicity, beauty, and playfulness.
