Epic, Spring 2016
EPIC is my passion project, and is the collection where I get to push my creative boundaries, build my skills as a designer and jeweler, and explore new directions. For spring I added three new sets of rings into the mix- two sets of hammered bands, and two extremely architectural and minimal rings. Both are so different from each other, and from the previous designs, but all still speak to me, and hopefully to you to!
I made a heavy-weight hammered band for a friends wedding this past year and was struck by how many people were truly captivated by its simplicity and beauty. I’m not sure why I am still shocked that friends and customers still find it difficult to find minimal and organic pieces. I knew that there was a customer looking for simple hammered bands to commemorate their union. My answer was to give you two textures, in three thicknesses. You can even choose to have a flush set diamond in the widest.
The architectural rings were a complete surprise, inspired by the process and the wax itself. While they are not organic, I am drawn to them for their simplicity in form which rings true to the fail aesthetic.
