The Salt Empire is inspired by the practice of adornment that is so abundant in other cultures. It is a response to the universal desire to embellish and beautify. Using materials such as fine metals and natural thread, they hand forge each piece to create a sort of talisman to the wearer, a grounding source, an elaborate whisper. Made in Portland, OR.
