The Kayla Recycled Denim and Sodalite Pendant Necklace is a made-to-order piece that begins with a piece of sodalite that is taken out of the waste stream from mine tailings.
The stone is rigorously inspected to ensure that it meets our quality standards. Next, it is carefully cut, polished, faceted, and strung on a piece of recycled denim which is also taken out of the waste stream. Next, the material is knotted to create a clasp featuring a ceramic bead, which is an homage to an ancient jewelry construction technique.
A breakthrough piece that challenges the notion that denim is just for clothing. The Kayla was designed for the girl that isn't afraid to wander off the beaten path or to take a risk by challenging the status quo. In this day and age, her self assurance and confidence provide a rare breath of fresh air.
Every Kayla is made by hand in Austin, Texas, USA by our artisans that are paid ethical, living wages. Before each is sent out, they are inspected again for quality, before being carefully packaged and shipped out.

We chose to use sodalite rather than the more popular crystals lapis lazuli or lazurite. Lapis and lazurite crystals typically have blue streaks, with more ultramarine coloration with gold pyrite inclusions, while sodalite has a characteristically more royal blue coloration accompanied with a white streak. We wanted our crystal pendant to mimic and flow the white and blue colors of the denim, rather than to contrast it.
Sodalite is believed to promote self-expression and confidence.
