Autoctona

Autoctona is a jewellery line by Portland-based Sardinian designer Alessandra Murgia.  Her pieces are conceived with the vision of treating metal as a fabric textile and sewing through it, hence you see the strings coming in and out of holes in the metal.  According to Murgia, their adjustable nature enables a personal interaction between the body and the object.  I love the minimalist mysticism her pieces evoke.

The Autoctona inbetween ring is an open ring featuring a piece of rope “stitched” through one of the metal pieces. Autoctona square bolo in the background.

The square bolo is both a tie and an amulet.

The Autoctona ring cuff is like a knuckle-duster with supernatural powers.

Autoctona is available at Assembly New York and Stand Up Comedy in Portland.
