About Us

While a young man studying ad design, I fell hopelessly in love. Her name was Modernism and I coveted her paintings, architecture and jazz album covers.  But I especially loved her fashion sense.

Years later, unable to think of anything but Modernism, I left advertising to create jewelry for her. Easier said than done: If I chose to melt and cast precious metals, their high cost would limit me to the simple, basic shapes of Minimalism. For the more complex geometries honoring Art Deco, Bauhaus and Constructivism, I'd need another metal and process.  
Modernism had disrupted my life, maybe now she was challenging me to disrupt hers.

Simply put, I found a way to replace the centuries-old methodology of casting precious metals with carving stainless steel. Because steel is less costly, I'm now able to design across wider surface areas than circles, squares or triangles. In yet another step, I electropolish these lightweight sculpted forms, a process that Apple and Tesla, two famously disruptive companies, often use for their own notable metalwork. The end result of that process is a finish that resembles the luster of silver but without the possibility of tarnishing.  Finally, a select group of my finely wrought designs are then brilliantly plated in rich 23 karat gold. 

Now is the time for a lighter, more affordable modern.
Now is the time for a clever, more sophisticated modern.
