Ginko Leaf Brooch.

Every shape holds a profound meaning in jewelry by Authorne, the brand founded in 2022 and launched in New York last September by designer Rachel Bu. A visual artist of Canadian and Chinese origin, Rachel likes to create sculptural pieces with an artistic DNA traversed by a cultural and conceptual dichotomy between East and West, where provocation and grace, masculinity and femininity, extravagance and substance, audacity and moderation all coexist. Starting from a series of symbolic motifs from which the artist draws inspiration- she admires their cultural resonance and intrinsic meaning - and then adapts each creation to the story of the wearer.
