Wax and Bone plays with the combination of aesthetics, harmonizing their conflicts and challenging the expectations of media while remaining classically wearable. Compared with traditional jewelry and accessory lines, Wax and Bone is uncommonly expansive in its use of materials, color, style and texture. I experiment endlessly, fusing new techniques and genres to ensure my work never ceases to be original or unexpected. I design for the person who isn’t subtle or traditional, who appreciates beauty and who wants to express their individuality. Each piece is made to be as unique as its owner, incorporating high-quality materials I personally source both locally and around the world.
