The Rotor Chain Bracelet

The Rotor Chain Bracelet

Ten years ago, Mitchell Binder caught sight of a helicopter drive-chain, the multilink monster that transfers horizontal circular motion to vertical circular motion, driving the rotor shaft and making the big machine go up and down. He thought it was a cool look, and made a few prototype components. But he wasn’t sure what to do with the whole idea...yet. The years have elapsed and King Baby’s new Rotor Link Bracelets are making their debut in the Birth of Americana Collection. The bracele...

Glenn Hughes Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Glenn Hughes Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

When Glenn Hughes stood on that stage in Brooklyn -- clearly a maverick in his wide-striped suit, dripping with Roll ‘n’ Roll jewelry -- Mitchell Binder was justifiably proud to see a Top Hat Turquoise ring on the Deep Purple bassist’s finger, big and bold enough to play to the back rows of the theater. It was the feeling a writer gets, seeing his novel on the Best-Seller list. Or a painter admiring his own work on the wall at MOMA. Or a custom jeweler watching his good friend earn long-dela...

A NEW WAY TO SAY, “I AM ONE OF THE CHOSEN FEW”

A NEW WAY TO SAY, “I AM ONE OF THE CHOSEN FEW”

King Baby’s fragrance was built from the ground up, with the attention to detail and insistence on perfection that typifies all of Mitchell Binder’s work. Over many months, during which vials of scents and essences flew back and forth between Santa Monica and Paris, Mitchell and his team of parfumiers fine-tuned a unisex bouquet that subtly projects the confidence and attitude of King Baby. Its gentle notes of musk, cinnamon, vanilla and honey strike a perfect chord for men and women alike. L...

So, What's With the Skulls?

So, What's With the Skulls?

When Mitchell Binder was a rebellious young maverick, the idea appealed to him of startling -- even shocking -- people with jewelry that featured the human headbone, post-mortem. Early adopters became so passionate about their iconic skull pieces that when, after a few years, Mitchell decided to take a break from that particular motif, cries of anguish were heard all the way to Santa Monica. Skulls quickly returned to the King Baby line-up, with variations on the classic design appearing in e...

What Makes A Piece of Jewelry An Heirloom?

What Makes A Piece of Jewelry An Heirloom?

Hefty, substantial, precisely crafted, communicating a maverick attitude that is uniquely American, King Baby’s rings, pendants, bracelets and accessories are individually hand-made to last, both physically and esthetically. “Heirloom” is a word first found in 15th-Century English, a hybrid from ayre lome. An heir is the recipient of treasures that are handed down between generations; a “loom” is a tool, an implement, with which the heir can make a living or enrich his or her life in a meanin...

Turquoise -- Rarer Than Diamonds

Turquoise -- Rarer Than Diamonds

Legend has it that the Native American Indians danced and celebrated when seasonal cloudbursts came at last. Their tears of joy mixed with the rain and absorbed into Mother Earth to become SkyStone.   Without detracting from the mystery of this eloquent testament to nature’s creativity, modern analysis has revealed that, in some arid climates, water has very gradually seeped through a host rock containing copper, iron and aluminum -- an exceptional combination -- over a period of many thous...
