While many jewelry designers (myself included) are still using the age-old technique of wax-carving to create their work, designer Jordan Askill seems light-years ahead of the pack with his perfectly proportioned, intricately detailed pieces created through 3-D computer rendering programs. Starting as a sculptor, Jordan made the brilliant decision to render his larger scale resin sculptures of packs of galloping horses and panthers into smaller-scale, wearable pieces. His second season includes large resin helmets made of flowers, and "backpacks" made of prowling panthers, in addition to smaller and slightly-more traditional looking fine-jewelry pieces following the same themes. While at first glance, his gold and ruby rings and aquiline necklaces look like traditional jewels, closer inspection reveals a menagerie of streamlined miniature animals, all dynamically rendered in movement. My favorite piece? The crystal horse jewelry box, which looks like an ice-sculpture of gallivanting horses, but opens to store jewelry, and is transparent, allowing your precious gems to peek through.
