Waxing Poetic designer Patti Paglieli Simpson believes that precious memories ought to be persevered in keepsake form. To that end, Simpson teamed up with her sister Lizanne and founded Waxing Poetic: a jewelry brand featuring charming initial charm necklaces, insignia-impressed boxes and other memorable designs. Located in Los Olivos, California, Waxing Poetic hires a team of artisans in Bali to handcraft its stunning jewelry using ancient metal-smithing techniques. Simpson intends many of Waxing Poetic’s birthstone bracelets, pendants and other designs to be layered and given as gifts for specific, celebratory occasions.

We’re always enthralled by modern jewelry that manages to reinvent classic motifs. In the case of Waxing Poetic, symbolic trinkets and initial charms are rendered in several artful ways. Choose from letters impressed into tiny gold plaques and blocky plates of silver, or scrawled fancifully onto mother-of-pearl discs. Just as appealing are the bezel-set birthstones suspended from stretch beaded bracelets.
