Designer Jeanine Payer has released a new jewelry collection featuring excerpts from the recent presidential inauguration poem Praise Song for the Day by Elizabeth Alexander.
The collection, Elements of Change, features delicate hand engraved poetry on silver and gold and was produced in the artist''s design studio in San Francisco.
It is comprised of three necklaces and three bracelets in sterling and 14k gold reflecting Payer''s signature style highlighting the diminutive and subtle hand engraved words.
"Jeanine Payer''s exquisite designs create elegance in elemental forms," said Alexander. "Her jewelry honors the power and beauty of simplicity, yet they also capture poetry''s invitation to deep contemplation."
She added that she was honored the artist found inspiration in her literary work.
Payer has been designing signature hand engraved jewelry in San Francisco for 20 years. She is a pioneer of the genre of ''jewelry with meaning'' which has strong following with collectors around the world.
The new collection was launched on April 1 in recognition of National Poetry Month, and has been gifted to Michelle Obama, her daughters and other select women who are working to advance Obama''s message of hope.
