River Song's story started in 2004. River Song jewelry is inspired by nature to capture the essence of the earth. River Burke is a wanderer and a dreamer who is always looking for stories and stones.
She collaborates with artists in Mexico, India, and Turkey to source fine artifacts and gemstones that are representative of their native cultures and lands. Her jewelry collection exemplifies her profound understanding of true beauty. Each piece, imagined and handcrafted by hand, exudes the magic of true friendship, discovery, and adventure.
River, as a jewelry brand, creates jewelry with a voice that will one day speak for its owner. With each wearer, the jewelry takes on a new form and life. When jewelry is worn, it becomes part of the wearer's memories. River enjoys what she does because she creates stories that grow in scope after she publishes them.
Louis Romero, born and raised in Mexico City, is a self-taught artist influenced by the city's creative, vibrant undercurrent. He moved to Seattle, WA, as a young adult and stayed for 15 years.
Through his paintings, he reimagined his childhood in Mexico and explored his Mexican soul. He and his wife, River, live in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where he creates art alongside her. His namesake brand of folkloric art and illustrations are memoirs and storytellers on paper.
River Song's art and life are colored and shaped by a love story and the creative collaboration between two artists. River Song jewelry represents travel, global citizenship, and the joys of discovery. Among the items for sale are the following:
