Crafted with care, COEXISTA is meticulously hand-tied with soft threads, showcasing three delicate silver and gold plates adorned with religious symbols: a crescent, the Star of David, and the cross. These symbols are subtly designed, with parts of the icon extending beyond the jewelry’s surface, symbolizing how we embrace each other’s diverse worlds and universes. The order of the symbols is random, emphasizing the idea that unity can emerge from any combination of beliefs.
Available in one size, the COEXISTA bracelet and anklets have a comfortable fit, with total thread lengths of 10.2 inches (26 cm) for the bracelet and 13.8 inches (35 cm) for the anklet, suitable for all genders and ages.

Rikke Harsheim, coming from a family of generations of goldsmiths, is renowned as one of Norway’s leading and most distinctive jewelers. Her expertise in gemology from the University of Oslo and design studies in Copenhagen have shaped her remarkable creations. Marianne Tefre, the creative force behind the By me concept, blends her passion for fashion with the art of making jewelry, and her love for natural materials like leather has led to a remarkable range of leather accessories.
