Artist and designer Annika Inez grew up surrounded by the pastoral landscapes of her native Sweden. Now based in New York City, Inez draws design inspiration from the chaotic city’s contrast with the quietude of her homeland. This brooch is composed of a sculptural sterling silver heart and can be used to dress up a casual outfit or to accessorize an evening ensemble. Inez is committed to sustainable methods of sourcing, production and packaging. She works with individual jewelers and artisans in NYC who make each piece by hand, as well as a small workforce of artisans and designers overseas. For every purchase from the Heart Collection, Inez donates one hot meal for a refugee family, through the charity Choose Love. The Annika Inez Heart Brooch measures 2.35h x 2.35”w.
