I am excited to debut my F18 collection, Sorda. For fall I was pulled to the dark side and turned to oxidized brass as a counterpoint to all of the bright, high polish, shiny and slick jewelry that is so prominent these days. I also continued to build upon the heavy handed forging techniques introduced in the Femme collection, but now on a thicker wire for a more substantial look and feeling. You will see that most evident in the Mazzo Hoop, Cuff & Ring.
The Ara Earring continues to play on the ideas of movement with layered shapes and colors. Reminiscent of the mobiles of Alexander Calder, these earrings really come alive when worn.
I also added in the addition of dynamic Labradorite and Rainbow Moonstone to the collection in the elegant and simple Ovalo Earring. I have been desperately trying to re-incorporate semi precious stones into my collection for years but previous attempts were never quite right. Hopefully these are the first of many pieces including semi precious stones to come!
Shop the entire collection online or see it in person at my Austin Flagship, or one of our upcoming retail shows.
