Up first are the cocktail rings, one-of-a-kind chunky geometric miniature art sculptures, guaranteed to attract attention at your next event.
About the rings
The idea for the jewelry springs from the our soap, specifically the Astral Shower, which is a white soap with bits of other soap embedded inside. After we make a block of it and slice it into bars we often think that it’s so great looking it should be hung on a wall, or put on a plinth.
So it started with a white block on our soap cutting board, and the thought, “how great would this be as a ring?”. That, infused with the ideas of museum plinths, and a way to incorporate our collection of minerals, is how it started.
Our first designs were made of wood, then clay, then lucite, but for the shapes we wanted none of those worked that well, so we bought a 3D printer and painstakingly learned how to turn pencil sketches and clay maquettes into sleek resin sculptures (in theory- there’s a lot of work to do after a raw print is done).
So the aesthetic of these cocktail rings of course to be big and showy like any good cocktail ring, and also have the vibe of being a piece of modern art- almost literally given the allusion to a plinth.
