via Lauren Ober:
Jacob Albee was supposed to be a raptor biologist, living in a tent, studying exotic birds. Somehow, he ended up becoming a designer jeweler, making one-of-a-kind, custom pieces out of gold, precious stones and even meteorite in his Burlington, Vt. studio. But his conservationist roots are never far from the surface and are often at odds with his craft.
