Bandelier

Andria Crescioni is the designer behind Bandelier, a southern California based jewellery label that takes inspiration from traditional craft and culture, with each piece made by hand by Andria herself. she graduated from Parsons School of Design and that’s where she became hooked on working with leather as a medium and started experimenting with jewellery making. so she decided to start her own line that was “modern and minimal, but rooted in traditional craft.”

When I’m developing new Bandelier pieces I usually start at the LA central library and get lost.  I’m inspired by industrial design and modern sculpture- right now I’m obsessed with Martin Puryear and Carl Aubock. Then it’s a fluid combination of sampling and sketching until I’m satisfied with the piece. I’m inspired by my surroundings as well- I like to take a drive out to the desert or the mountains near my home when I need to clear my head and re-connect with nature.

you can buy her pieces online at Young & Able or Need Supply Co.

Of A Kind Giveaway!

those amazing ladies at Of A Kind are kindly offering another awesome giveaway! this is our fifth together, and i think that 5 might be our lucky number. this time round i got to pick some unique, handmade jewellery pieces that i personally love.

everyone has their way of accessorising. i like bracelets & necklace (the bolder the better), yet seldom wear earrings unless i’m feeling fancy. i also tend to wear one thing at a time, but i know girls who wear everything at once which i think is awesome.

today you have a choice of either a necklace, a pair of earrings, a cuff or a ring – all one Of A Kind, of course. to enter:

(1) leave a comment with your pick (that’s the one you’ll win!) & tell me how you like to accessorise
(2) enter at the Of a Kind x Miss Moss entry page! you’ll be signing up for their newsletter, which is the best.

this is what you’re dealing with: 1. the Golden Ardor Necklace by Highlow Jewelry, a beige clay wonder that can hang with every neckline in your closet, thanks to its adjustable cord. 2. these Mini Quartz Studs by Giant Lion, two diamond-cut quartz stones in a minimalist gold setting. 3. the Ingrid Cuff by Dream Collective, a handmade brass & enamel piece with a cheery motif. 4. the White Diamond Pharos Ring by Steven Shein, probably the most unique ring i ever did see.

FARIS

Faris Du Graf is an artist & jewellery designer from Seattle whose line FARIS has a new collection & lookbook called Tropical Modernism. the jewellery itself is beautifully unique, and the ultra creative lookbook just adds to its overall awesomeness. you can buy the pieces at their online shop. love those jade coloured earrings and that pineapple ring.

Inspired by the shadowed silhouettes of tropical canopies found in the urban and natural landscapes. Hand-carved pineapple palms that crown a hand. Jade sunrises to charm. Fans hinged from lobes and cool a shoulder. Each piece shares a sense of ease and intention.

Endswell

Endswell is a new unisex ring collection by designers Rachel Gant and Andrew Deming, who also run Yield Design Co. the rings are cast with solid gold from 3d prints, how cool is that? the vision for Endswell started in 2012 when they designed wedding bands for close friends of theirs. they have just released their inaugural collection of statement pieces, “for any occasion or no occasion at all.”

We are about respecting the past, yielding to the present and looking forward to the future. We know the fashions of past decades will always find a way to eventually repeat. We look for the core element, the true essence of those times and with it we create something entirely new for today or perhaps tomorrow. I design each ring through a process of 3d modeling, printed prototypes, and finally solid gold casts. The process is incredibly interesting and rewarding, and the resulting pieces have honestly become our most prized creations to date.

Hannah Hoffman

Hannah Hoffman is a jeweller from Columbus, Ohio who has a background in glass art & metalsmithing. she recently launched her website sporting a lovely line of jewellery, with a rad lookbook styled by Sally Mcleod and photographed by Michelle Maguire.

My metal work demonstrates a balance between the industrial and the unrefined.  I am instinctually drawn to produce a geometric, almost harsh aesthetic.  Therefore, I often challenge myself to alter the ‘cleanliness’ of the work, by creating it in a way in which allows variation in the finished piece.  This is my way of relinquishing some control of the outcome and giving the piece itself freedom to diversify.
