I was captivated by the sensuality of seaweed. The shapes and textures it formed evoked emotion and expressivity.

Texture is paramount to my designs and nature has taught me the art of contrasting textures in close proximity. From exquisitely haphazard configurations to the most soothing repetitious patterns, variation in wildlife has a purpose and it inspires me to push the boundaries of texture.

The fun of designing jewelry comes in translating the emotion behind the texture. I want to convey the fierceness from a spiky sea urchin and sensuality of a smooth, sand-washed shell.

Colby June is conceived by tiny moments, the unobvious, the subtle. From Aspen Mountain to the beach pathways of Holbox Island, the unassuming details of nature continue to serve as my greatest inspiration.
