Pearls Before label that was founded in 2005 by designer Himo Martin. Handmade in British Columbia, Pearls Before Swine jewelry is world-renowned for its craftsmanship, its powerful narrative and elemental nature. Martin turns to unexpected and overlooked sources of beauty for inspiration: thorns, misshapen branches, rough nails, heavy chains. Materials like rugged oxidized silver, intentionally imperfect pearls and raw diamonds create a sense of rawness that balances his delicate forms.
