When sitting in a crowded, 104-degree Mexican sweat lodge (or temezcal), the last thing most people would think about is designing a new jewelry collection. But that’s exactly what hit K. Brunini founder Katey Brunini on her trip to Tulum, Mexico, earlier this year.
Inspired by the spirit animals that figure prominently in the temezcal’s purification ceremony, she created a limited edition series including a ring that features a ruby-eyed raven hand-carved from jet set atop silver, and another that consists of a large lizard carved from bone with a spine of orange sapphires and a gold crown on its head (left, $4,500 to $80,000, at kbrunini.com and 858.259.8779).

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
