Minimalist with a Twist - Jeanne Marell, UK

Half fairtrade silver or 9ct yellow gold, half olive wood, these unisex rings have unique detailing inspired by joinery techniques. The contrast in material and finish is celebrated and highlighted by the two opposing dovetail joints. Each ring is unique, as the wood grain is never quite the same.
The ring is both 3.5 mm wide and 3.5 mm thick.

Jeanne Marell’s minimalist approach to jewelry design brings together different materials and relies on simple hand building techniques such as riveting and dovetailing. A humble carpenter’s joint in her Dovetail rings combines wood or Corian with precious metal, while riveting is used to sandwich Perspex between two layers of silver.

Jeanne who was a first time Goldsmiths’ Fair exhibitor in 2015, is a renowned product designer in her ‘other life’, counting Cadillac, HP, Nokia and Samsung among her blue chip clients. It is only in the last two years that she ventured into the world of jewelry, designing and making her own pieces. Although she juggles the two careers side-by-side, Jeanne has already been nominated for a Benchpeg Award and her work has been shown at International Jewellery London (IJL) as part of their Kickstarter program.

Noteworthy: Jeanne relies on fairtrade metals whenever possible.

Two layers of precious metal sandwich a layer of glass-like plexiglass. The rounded triangle shape is surprisingly comfortable to wear. We use Fairtrade gold and silver for our Rivet rings.

A contemporary take on the traditional typology of diamond jewellery, and engagement rings in particular. The minimalist interpretation uses a form language and contrasting finishes that draw the eye to the sparkling tip. The ring shank is made of 3 mm round wire and has a sandblasted matte finish, with the tip shiny polished to contrast.

Spirograph Collection

The nylon wires create a beautiful graphic pattern, looking just like those spirograph drawings you did when you were a child. The light catching on the nylon creates an intriguing optical effect. Some say it seems a bicycle wheel in motion...
