CONSERVATION OF MATTER

Brutalist, industrial and raw, new jewellery label 'Conservation of Matter' brings an avant-garde aesthetic to the realm of jewellery. Finding beauty in the stark language of geometry, the line consists of strong, structural pieces that come to life when juxtaposed with the organic body of a human being. Although minimalist, the pieces retain a roughness from their origins in the sawing, hammering and forming of the metal.

Founded in 2016 by Chicago designer Kyla Katz. She combines her background in dance and theatre with her metalsmithing skill-set, bringing a sense of movement and drama to her work.

"I approach jewellery design as an art form. Each piece I create is a small sculpture intended to be worn in intimate conversation with the body. My design process is improvisational; the image of each piece emerges from the metal as I make it. The lines, angles and textures of the work embody unconscious elements and bring them into form. I value surprise and discovery in design, each piece should offer something unexpected."  

The collection is modelled by hand by the designer, and then cast in sterling silver by master craftspeople in New York City.  Finished with a natural oxidized patina, the pieces will transform and take on the unique history of the wearer over time. This exciting new label will be available to buy online soon.
