Xenophora Objects

Xenophora Objects is a brand of handcrafted jewelry designed by Karissma Yve. Using techniques such as sand casting and lost-wax casting, these unique, brutal objects are inspired by nature and alchemy – the tagline (As above becomes below, within becomes without) is a play on the alchemical maxim “As above, so below.” I like the raw quality of these pieces, how they remind me of natural forms, how extremely tactile and primal-feeling they are, and their embodiment of her vision of “a perfectly imperfect composition of ash and blood.” Karissma is also quite the wordsmith and I like the emotionally intense vibe, a sort of incandescent, poetic priestess-like energy, that she infuses into the stories she creates around her lovingly made pieces.
