"We simply adore Flint by Lafayette-based Irenka Kudlicki. She's created a collection of one-of-a-kind, high-end jewelry pieces that retail from $300 to $1200, as well as more affordable goodies that sell for under $100. Kudlicki travels to Poland every few months to gather a rare form of stripedflint (the company's signature). Think antique Bali beads with diamonds, tinyquartz Drusy crystals, and Tibetan pendants.

"Flint Jewelry (currently named Irenka Jewelry) is painstakingly handcrafted by an artist in the Bay Area... Many of the pieces are unique and one of a kind because of the antique stones used. Some other pieces feature rough hewn, unpolished semi-precious and precious stones, each with their own unique markings which only nature could have created. In addition to using the usual sterling silver and gold chains, Flint also makes use of unusual materials such as lather, suede, and silk."
