WELCOME TO ELKE VAN DYKE DESIGN
“Organic textures of nature meet sleek industrial lines of New York City – here we fuse recycled metal and stones to create a piece that is uniquely yours - elegant and with an anti-conformist sentiment.” ~ Elke Van Dyke
Elke Van Dyke Design is handcrafted sterling silver, gold and mixed metal jewelry inspired from the symbiotic, beautiful and sometimes devastating relationship between nature and industry. Elegant, modern, and edgy, each design seeks to redefine the purpose of the “statement piece” by offering one-of-a-kind wearable art that tells the story of the organic relationship between nature and man.
Each collection incorporates a fusion of metal-smithing and oxidization techniques of sterling silver, copper and 14K gold and rose gold (solid and fill). Through her travels, Elke has forged personal relationships with small, fair-trade, family-run businesses to source recycled metals and handpick raw stones from their local regions. We encourage the incorporation of synthetic gemstones as they are real gemstones with a significantly lower impact on the environment. Additionally, we use recycled metals as often as possible and wholly support the mindfulness of the environment and the legacy we leave behind. Learn more about gemstones in our FAQs HERE.
