From Cosmic Dust: A Conversation with the Artist behind Kria

March 3rd, 2013 / by Lily / no comments / permalink

Kria_Elisabet_Davids

The artist on her vision and inspiration. In her own words:
“The genesis for Kria came upon discovering an Arctic Tern skeleton, named the Kria in Icelandic, on a black lava beach east of Reykjavik where I am from. But, I continue to cultivate my inspiration from my friends and my family and where we all live in relation to Nature. My vision for Kria has been of the essence I see in the natural form, and what those forms remind me of when taken out of their natural context. I want to create jewelry that enhances beauty in compliment with other designs, and which creates beauty on it’s own in a sculptural sense.”

“Jewelry and adornment are the oldest of human traditions dating back 100,00 years with shells and beads. I hope to nurture a natural kinship with those instincts for people who wear my jewelry, I want them to feel like it is a part of them. It might sound pretentious, but the intimate relationship people have always had with what they choose to adorn themselves with seems to cultivate mysticism, and I hope somehow my designs can be a tangible reflection of that.”

“I continue this path of discovery and find shapes whether they be in Nature formally or otherwise. For if anything comes from nowhere, it comes from the same cosmic dust and therefore the same nowhere as everything else.”

Vintage Rings: Off The Beaten Path

August 13th, 2012 / by Paul / no comments / permalink

The Weird Collection

We love rings, and we love vintage jewelry, but what we REALLY love is those really weirdo vintage rings. These are the pieces of jewelry that were made for and loved by very special people with tastes and lifestyles that rivaled the mainstream; one of a kind gems that were special from the start. From customized biker rings to crudely hand carved prison creations to exquisitely mastered sterling silver wizards, these rings represent either the fashion underdog or the mad genius; maybe both. Check them out in the store and online.

These new feather necklaces from Symbiotique are unlike anything you’ve seen before. Made in collaboration with a reclusive Swiss mountain man who spends his days assembling haute couture feather dusters, the color and vibrancy of each piece is amazing. With handcrafted sterling silver architecture and gems like garnet, lime quartz and turquoise to compliment, they are great objets d’art in addition to fine jewelry.
