Joseph Brooks, a jewelry designer based in Hollywood, embodies sensuality, strength, and raw beauty in his handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pieces. With an interest in stone properties and energies, every piece in his extensive line highlights the true essence of each handpicked stone.
Drawn initially to American turquoise, which is difficult to find in a world of mostly fake and dyed stones, Joseph located a mine in northern Arizona whose owners had been operating and producing spectacular turquoise since 1962. This inspired Joseph to begin designing a jewelry collection featuring this signature Southwest stone.
A devoted international birdwatcher, Joseph's passion has brought him all around the world in hopes of spotting yet another rare species. These travels have also served as an opportunity for Joseph to find gem treasures such as sapphires in Sri Lanka, banded agates in Java, prayer beads on the Tibetan plateau, or fossils in Madagascar. Over time, his collection has grown, now including over 70 different natural un-dyed gems and crystals.
