Our studio practice explores the relationship between metal and media (stones, glass and paper), drawing from historical foundations while questioning and investigating perceptions of the jewelry field.
After reading a report from the North Carolina Dept of Natural Resources, Mike went mining for rubies, sapphires, garnets, etc. This experience triggered Mike’s fascination of stones and the extraordinary expression each stone possesses. He carries the same passion when working, cutting and polishing, with stones.
We offer contemporary eclectic artisan jewelry made from unique stones, many we have personally collected on hikes.
With these distinctive stones, we design a fresh clean line of jewelry pieces blending striking shapes with a playful spirit!.
We are passionate about making extraordinary people express themselves in a rebel-elegant way, extraordinary people who are looking to stand out through innovation, originality and high product quality - dare to be different, express your loud silence!
We are putting our efforts into making environmentally friendly decisions as we incorporate repurposed diamonds in some of our pieces. For a green alternative, we create some of our jewelry from recycled silver. As we are committed to adhering to the principles of sustainable development and we continually look for ways to improve.
