THE ARCHITECTURAL MESS
Ongoing collection, Est. 2016
One of a kind, Unique and Serial pieces
The boundary between art and design in jewelry is a complex and subjective boundary. While both fields require creativity and technical skill, art often focuses on the expression of ideas and emotions, while design is more focused on functionality and solving practical problems. In jewelry, this can manifest in pieces that are purely decorative and meant to be admired as works of art, or those that are designed to be worn and fulfill a specific function, such as holding a gemstone securely in place.
As a jewelry designer, finding a perfect balance between these boundaries involves integrating artistic vision and technical skill to create pieces that are both beautiful and functional.
Through this exploration, I have developed a visual language that embraces asymmetry and complimentary shapes.
The rings incorporate an arrangement of playfully set stones in combination with different shapes and styles. Like the contrast and beauty found in a vibrant cityscape, like the beauty of an Architectural Mess.
The Architectural Mess reflects the beauty in chaos and complexity.
The balance between art and design and the conceptual and applied function of jewelry reflects in skill and creativity, resulting in pieces that are both functional and beautiful.
Most of these rings are produced in limited editions, with varying availability for each design.
As the collection continues to expand, new designs are added.
