Peg and Awl

Dorian Ring

$ 82.00

Our new jewelry collection, called All The Names, incorporates small brass frames from mid-1800s Daguerreotype and Ambrotype hinge cases that once framed faces whose names are forever lost.

When we come into contact with the past through old journals, well-worn objects, family stories, etc., we are altered by them and them by us. The same is true in the making and experiencing of objects that incorporate elements or stories from the past. What seems immutable is, by dint of our footfalls in the dusty attic, made different.

As the rings stack, new journeys unfold and offer the possibility to wear a fragment of someone’s history that changes yet again when a ring slips onto your finger, or a pendant around your neck.
