Designer Spotlight: Architecture & Art Inspired Jewelry by Jessica Biales

My friend Jessica Biales, who is a Manhattan-based jewelry designer, has just debuted a brand new collection. True to form, these newest pieces are based on art and architecture, a common source of inspiration for Biales. (I typed at least one or two architecture papers for her in college. On my electric typewriter.)

Earlier this year she released her Scissors Collection inspired by Matisse’s work in last year’s MoMA exhibit “Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs.” Her most popular earlier work includes  signet rings and slice rings. (I have a rose gold slice ring with tavorites, a green gem.)

The current collection offers modern rings, bracelets, and pendants in sterling silver and gold. Pieces echo artist Josef Albers’ colorblock square paintings, steel sheet metal sculptures by David Smith, and the inverted architecture of The Whitney Museum by Marcel Breuer, and Rothko’s meditative abstracts.
