Prefab Architecture Firm Gets Into Jewelry Making
I've swooned over prefab houses by Marmol Radziner many times. The eco-friendly design firm has created minimalist homes that use recycled steel frames, solar panels and wood flooring from trees that are grown and harvested in a way that protects forests for the long term. Now Marmol Radziner has translated that same aesthetic into jewelry. The M + R Jewelry line is made by master craftsmen who use fabrication surplus from building houses and furniture to individually produce and finish each piece from architectural bronze. The sturdy unisex cuffs and rings have a patina which will wear over time in response to the wearer.The M+R Jewelry collection can be found at Arp in Los Angeles and sells for $80 to $250.
