FrontRunners: Nurturing Nature

David Lee Holland (www.davidleeholland.com, 212.925.1944) expresses his love of nature through a botanically inspired jewelry collection of sculpted 18-karat gold laurel leaves, pinecones, and oak branches. “I try to re-create the delicate beauty of nature in gold,” explains the second-generation jeweler, who recently opened his first boutique on Sullivan Street in New York’s SoHo district. Holland’s collection consists of intricately textured pieces designed to appeal to both men and women. One lapel pin depicts a simple oak branch appointed with a Japanese Akoya pearl, and a pair of earrings portrays oncidium orchids in remarkable detail. A dedicated conservationist, Holland demonstrates his commitment to nature by donating a percentage of his sales to the Central Park Conservancy.
