The Bent Line Vision

The Bent Line collection is inspired by the movement and shape of a single line...from a gentle knot of yarn to glistening kelp. Each piece is made by heating a straight silver rod and bending it by hand to form the intended shape. In addition to The Bent Line, we will be reprinting our most popular scarves, World in Dots, Long Brush & Short Brush.

Twisted Teardrops in Sterling Silver

The prototypes for each piece of jewelry are made by rolling out a coil of clay then twisting and wrapping it until a strong shape emerges.
