For almost 40 years, Warren and Robbin have worked with their hands, building houses, yacht interiors, and cabinets. When they began cruising on a small sailboat, they downsized their materials, but not their creative ambitions: Today they create jewelry using natural materials, collaborating with artisans wherever they’re anchored. “It’s inspiring to be in Asia where the artisans are so gifted and the range of materials so varied,” Robbin says. “We feel this is where our work will be transformative, where it will sing.”
