STYLE TAKE FLIGHT Colby June’s new Raven necklace in bronze Jewelry designer Colby June , who grew up in Aspen and now lives in Carbondale, has always found inspiration in the tiny details. Having launched her line five years ago, she works primarily with precious metals—and the occasional gemstone for a pop of color—to create simple, organic shapes that often resemble natural treasures. The anchor piece of her just-introduced Wing collection, the Raven necklace, combines a hand-carved and cast raven wing on a Wings of Desire 30-inch rolo chain with a secondary pendant inlaid with black onyx (available in several versions, including 14K yellow gold, $4,900). The entire collection is rooted in June’s awe of the beauty and function of bird wings and the sense of freedom they represent. Outside of the designer’s Etsy shop, the line is available at Pitkin County Dry Goods (520 E. Cooper Ave.), Anderson Ranch Arts Center (5263 Owl Creek Road, Snowmass Village) and Midland Clothing (740 E. Valley Road, Basalt). colbyjune.com – Katie Shapiro PHOTO BY CLARISSA SCHNEIDER
