ObjecX for the body…

 

As a child I found myself surrounded my metal of all kinds. ‘Findings’ is what my grandfather, Andrea, called them. As a first generation American he was sent to Providence at thirteen to work as an apprentice for an uncle who was a successful Blacksmith.

 

My grandfather later became a tool maker, a true artisan, he sought innovation from all over the world and created timeless findings, machines and tools that still influence the world of jewelry today. As a child I spent a great deal of time at his metal stamping factory in Providence, Rhode Island. And almost 40 years later, the smell of raw metal and the sound of machines still bring back vivid childhood memories I spent with my Grandfather.

 

He always admired my attraction to design, love of art, color, texture and the composition of my surroundings. Metal and jewelry have always been a part of my family history but until recently they have not been a part of my design esthetic.

 

As years pass, my work evolves and so have the materials that I have chosen to use. I have been fortunate enough to travel the world seeking fresh, new, and unusual objects; I find myself in a constant search for something different. I dream of a strange and eclectic collection of uncommon and surprising things pieced together which create something beautiful and most importantly, unique.

 

I have always designed one of a kind jewelry pieces for myself and friends and family, and now I am making them available to you.

Best Photo-GRAY-phy Ever!!

Its a great day for us at ObjecX. Full day of shooting and fun with Corey Grayhorse. She can really bring out the best in everyone….even our not so professional models. Thank you to everyone….my girls Alex, Gloria,Evy, Liz and Sophia and our one and only male on the set Max (poor things…he was surrounded!) but especially Corey for getting the best out of them all!

Here are a few shots from the shoot that are not on the website.

Check out Corey’s work at  www.coreygrayhorsephoto.com she is truly one of kind…just like us!!!

Hong Kong…eyes wide open!

I have traveled all over Europe but Asia has always been out of reach. Well, this year it came into view for the first time. It is like nothing I have ever seen before….words cannot even describe what it felt like to be there. It was so different from any other place I had ever experienced.

People, food, architecture ….and the list goes on and on. Here is a collection of pictures from my journey to the other side of the world. Just another place for me to add to my collection of experiences….another place to use as reference for work. Hong Kong…..it was a eye opener!

Bangkok and beyond……….

Somehow I ended up on Bangkok…..this is a crazy place. Hot Hot Hot…that was the weather. Met a group of brothers that sell an incredible collection of stones, beads and artifacts. Within 5 minutes I was going thru the assortment to collect whatever I could carry back to Hong Kong. Parts and pieces that are amazing! Although I still had 4 weeks left to my trip I could not wait to get to the studio and see what we could put together. Some pics of the sites of Bangkok. The temples, the orchids, the culture it was all a feast for the senses!
