Emily Began Building Jewelry With Architecture
As an architecture graduate student, while her peers were designing buildings and bridges for their thesis projects, Emily’s plans were significantly smaller, but just as spectacular.
After getting the OK from her thesis advisor to use jewelry to interpret architectural design as her project, she sketched and cast jewelry in concrete.
Her original designs, like Bent Ring Wide, and Oval Ring Solid are the cornerstones of her collections.
Inspired by her grandmother, Patricia, many of Emily’s designs are named after her, like the Patricia Pedestal Ring, and the Patricia Band Ring.
