*NODE* - *No Ordinary Design Element*.
Nodeform Design is a one-woman jewelry design studio based in Los Angeles. Trained as an Architect I enjoy working on smaller scale designs to create jewelry. I specialize in rings, especially wedding and engagement rings. Rings are the perfect wearable mini sculpture, an expression of style right on your hand. A ring can symbolize and represent a variety of social and emotional states of being. It can be pure adornment or fun and express personal style.
The designs are simple, but dramatic forms with an architectural look to them. Unique jewelry works strike a balance between independent sculpture and interaction with the body.
To create my designs I use ancient metalsmithing techniques such as lost wax casting and forging as well as new technologies like Computer Aided Design (CAD), 3D printing and CNC milling.
I use recycled precious metals like sterling silver, palladium, platinum and gold in my work, in a way that it represents the metals true quality: fine reflective surfaces, crisp edges, and structural harmony. I combine precious metals with beautiful colored stones to enhance some pieces. Each piece has its own sense of balance. I use recycled precious metals and beautiful ethically sourced gemstones and diamonds. All pieces are meticulously hand crafted by me in my private studio in Los Angeles, CA.
