The object-based stories of where we are from, the paths we have traveled, and the people we hold close. Translating and connecting through jewels, geography and generations.
Origins and Routes
Jewelry made using the objects that represent where we are from, the paths we have traveled, and the places we call home. A unique mix of cultures, geographies, generations, and identity.
Transforming the objects that carry our memories and creating new pieces of art. Redesigning and reimagining the role these pieces have in our lives, how we use them and and see them. Creating connections between generations.
