There is absolutely nothing wrong with a straight line from here to there. It’s direct. It’s simple. And usually it’s fast. But think of all the things you’d miss if you never veered off the road, if you never took a detour, if you never explored a flea market or a field of wildflowers or a redwood forest.
Not a big fan of the ordinary, Lisa Eisner has taken the mother of all scenic routes, a seeker’s journey, one where she could collect, refine, and build on each experience and shiny thing her eye could take in along the way.
Inspired by literally every beautiful thing, person, flower, animal, and rock she’d ever encountered, Lisa launched her first handmade jewelry collection in 2014 and has continued to build on it from there.
She continues to be influenced by the American West—whether it’s turquoise that comes from a long-since closed mine in Arizona, the inky black jade of her home state of Wyoming, or a strange fossilized specimen from an old rock hound—each stone is hand selected and then set in bronze or gold.
