When our friend Jonathan Goldstein started his jewelry line BEVEL, he certainly didn't display any trepidation in his work. His strong, mostly unisex, designs look like they're built for a modern Aztec warrior, and consist of plenty of metal facemasks, chin guards, and extra-pointy spiked bracelets and rings. Even though many of his pieces somehow resemble either armor or weaponry, I would think twice before going to battle adorned in BEVEL, as most of his heavy pieces are cast in either sterling silver or solid gold, and losing one of them would cost nearly as much as losing a limb. I know I would probably cry just as much. These photographs hardly do the work justice, and since Jonathan's a major perfectionist, I suggest you take a look at his website to view the full lookbook, as well as his blog to see his fascinating sources of inspiration.
