Xenophora

4719 16th St. Unit #1, Detroit; 313-284-1844; xenophoraobjects.com

The handmade, Detroit-produced jewelry objects of Xenophora are not for your faint-of-heart, Pandora bracelet-wearing aunt. The appointment-only showroom caters to those looking to make an otherworldly, showstopping statement that plays on esoteric mysticism, technology, and history. Created by alchemist and Brightmoor native Karissma Yve, Xenophora designs are one of a kind and made one at a time, mostly out of oxidized .925 sterling silver.
