Welcome to Sisu
This is a collection that was incepted during, what we believe, was one of the most trying years of our lives, 2020. From the pandemic, to social & economic issues, it is a year that will go down in the history books. All while we were trying to cope with the turmoiled world around us, unbeknownst to us, sisu was born. The word "sisu", derived from a native Finnish concept, is nearly untranslatable in the english language. While ideas of "grit", "perseverance, or "resilience" do not come close to describing the term, the closest equivalent is an "extraordinary determination in the face of adversity", with emphasis on inner strength. When we discovered the term, we felt a strong connection to the ideals and beliefs behind it. Coincidentally, all the pieces we designed also encapsulated this concept. It only seemed fitting to make it the namesake of this new collection. Crafted from 18K gold, precious & semi-precious stones, the pieces of sisu are bold - there is a strength & modern sophistication in the design & composition of the pieces. It's a small, but mighty collection that will inevitably keep growing with time, and we are beyond thrilled to share this work with our clients.
