DRU. was launched during a transition in my life when I was searching for strength.  Many aspects of my life were changing, and I began to design jewelry using motifs that represent protection and security, mortality and immortality, and love and luck in pieces such as daggers, skulls, wishbones, angel wings, and a variety of crosses. As I worked with these motifs, I also began incorporating words of wisdom and encouragement.  Coincidentally, it was during my time of transition that the political climate changed in such a way that we all seemed to be looking for faith and promise in an increasingly hostile and discouraging reality.  I found that the iconography that was inspiring me to put one foot in front of the other could inspire others to do the same.  And so DRU. was born.

DRU. revolves around iconic words, symbols, and images that have provided hope and solace throughout history.  The themes have remained the same, and in today’s world these icons have continued to evoke a powerful resonance for anyone who wears them.  More than anything, I want the wearer of my jewelry to feel braver, stronger, and more able to tackle what seems insurmountable. My inspiration comes from the women and men who wear my jewelry--their struggles, fears, feelings, and everyday circumstances.  DRU. has become a way for me to make sense of life’s complexities, find light in the dark places, and create armor that lets in the light.

   


 Press Releases

  • Described as empowering, bold, sexy, edgy, and ironic, DRU. Jewelry will be making its trade show debut at JA New York March 11-13.  They will be showcasing their classic pieces alongside the new Spring Collection 2018, with a select group of eight designers in the New Designer Gallery, curated by Liz Kantner. DRU. consists of fine jewelry in 14k and 18k golds, with both precious and semi-precious stones.  Most pieces are available in sterling silver, as well.

    DRU. began with iconic symbols and images that have provided hope and solace throughout history.  As DRU. evolved, Thea Miller, the designer, began incorporating words as mantras.  At the same time, the political landscape changed so drastically and painfully, Thea found it even more important to use her jewelry as protection against the ugliness, while helping to retain one’s grace, individuality, and sense of humor.  More than anything, Thea wants the wearer of DRU. to feel braver, stronger, and more able to tackle what seems insurmountable. The inspiration comes from the women and men who wear DRU.--their struggles, fears, feelings, and everyday circumstances. For it is these truths that bind us to one another, for better or for worse.  What began as a mode of self-expression has become a way to make sense of life’s complexities, find light in the dark places, and create armor that lets in the light.

    DRU. looks forward to showcasing their designs at JA New York in March.  They are excited to meet the diverse group of attendees and to discuss their inspiration, design ethos, and creative process in more detail.  To set-up an appointment to meet with DRU. at JA, please reach out to: sales@drujewelry.com.
