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.
