About

     Explore, be inspired and take it with you. 

     AETAS was inspired by the desire to travel, find inspiration and be able to take it with you.  Meaning "era" in Latin, AETAS heirlooms are natural artifacts of our era. Immortalized natural beauty in the form of chic jewelry, all pieces are made by hand from recycled, fine metals in California.

     Each heirloom is made from a casting of a sustainably-sourced natural object that is then hand-molded into a beautiful piece of wearable art. With strong, natural texture and chic shapes, these modern-day artifacts are easily added to every day jewelry ensembles or can be worn alone as an original and powerful statement.    

     Designer Laura Bridges started AETAS in NYC before moving west to California to follow her adventurous heart.  It was in Northern California that she created the Silvae Collection, inspired by textures from the forest.  Now in L.A., when not creating, Laura can be found adventuring, and searching for new, natural inspiration in California and abroad.
