There are only a handful of jewelry designers that I consider true masters, Sevan Bicakci is one of them. His work is unparalleled in complexity and innovation. Residing Istanbul, his designs draw from the Ottoman and Byzantine aesthetic and he creates these designs working in 24K, Sterling Silver, hand carved gemstones and Micro mosaic enameling.
Andreia Chaves is a Brazilian designer who recently released a new version of the Invisible Shoe she created called “Naked.” The shell of Naked is a 3D printed nylon structure with an interior leather pump hand made in Italy. Geometric design done right, I’m just waiting for a men’s version.
Debbie brought this artist to my attention, his name is Matthew Shlian. These intricate sculptures are made out of paper, I love the intricacy and refinement in his pieces. You can see more of his work here; http://theghostlystore.com/collections/matthew-shlian
