A new collection....Vestige.
1. a mark, trace, or visible evidence of something that is no longer present or in existence:A few columns were the last vestiges of a Greek temple.
2. a surviving evidence or remainder of some condition, practice, etc.:These superstitions are vestiges of an ancient religion.
3. a very slight trace or amount of something: Not a vestige remains of the former elegance of the house.
It is an honor to introduce you to my newest collection, Vestige. Inspired by the remnants of what we leave behind, I explore the relationship my hands have with the materials I work in as well as the physicality of the pieces I create. The collection draws influence from ancient Greek and Egyptian jewelry, and a has a very tactile and weighty presence, while remaining light and satisfying to wear.
I am so excited about this new direction for LMJ. A bit less derivative of nature itself, each piece is both smooth to the touch and textured to the eye. My goal is for you to feel effortless in this jewelry, to feel both beautiful and anchored. I made the work weighty and smooth to the touch so that you will interact with it, fidget or fiddle with it. There can be such comfort in an object you can handle over the course of your day- I’m reminded of worry stones like the smoothed and dimpled rose quartz I keep close at hand.
I can’t wait to see you interact with this collection! It is you, my clients that provide the most inspiration, and as always, as I see you wear and enjoy this work it will continue to evolve.
