Infinite Universe is an eco-friendly accessories and lifestyle brand inspired by nature – by its colors and textures, and the vast beauty found within.
As a company, infinite Universe is distinguished not only by its product, but by its process.

Collaboration

Infinite Universe started with Karen Hendrix, but if you look to her for the story of this brand, she’ll point you outward, to the countless human hands and journeys that cultivated her vision. She’ll point to the tribe of women who encouraged her, the stone cutters who hand polish and finish each stone, the wood artisans who craft each piece with meticulous care, the woman in India whose personal quest inspired the infinity symbol logo. She’ll point to the dear friend whose passing revealed to Karen that while the universe is infinite, lifetimes are not, and it was time to begin her own creative journey.


Sustainability

Replenishing our treasured natural resources is a fundamental part of infinite Universe.  We obtain our African Blackwood through a supplier in the U.S. who works with a company involved in a sustainability program in Mozambique, and our Kauri wood was felled thousands of years ago and is dug from the bogs in New Zealand. Respect for our natural resources is a fundamental belief of infinite Universe.  Eco-friendly is a hallmark of our jewelry.

Synchronicity

Karen’s friends – her tribe, she calls them, of women who embolden and push and inspire – encouraged Karen to set off across the globe in search of skilled artisans and like-minded souls. The vision for infinite Universe was shaped by this journey: synchronous encounters threading from a consultant in New York City to a handbag designer in Florence to a logo artist in India to a woodworker in Karen’s own back yard. All individuals emotionally invested in creating a brand built on craftsmanship, ecology, humanity, interconnectedness.

Beauty

Karen has always been an observer, easily awestruck by simple splendor in everything from a distinctive piece of clothing to the fluid curve of an arch. When, in more recent years, the natural world began speaking more persuasively to Karen – the sacred geometry of a beehive, the mosaic of a salmon’s scales, the exquisite colors of a tropical flower, the intricacies of a hummingbird – she began to sketch. She began converting the stirring images around her into ideas for handbags and jewelry. But what turns a sketch into a concept, a concept into a reality? Many hands.


Quality

Exquisite craftsmanship is integral. Materials alone ensure each item’s exclusivity – every cut of wood has its own grain, every semi-precious stone its own pattern and shades of color making them intrinsically unique. Lovingly and mindfully, the artisans of infinite Universe transform these raw pieces of nature into hand-polished, hand crafted creations that are beautiful and practical while maintaining the spirit of their origins.
