Drawn & Quartered is the work of Australian silversmith Jake Andrew. The aesthetic is stark, and dark, with a bit of fantasy, which I love—odd pieces of silver jewelry that I would like to wear all at the same time, bumping into and buffing each other with wear. Jake enjoys working on custom projects as much as his own line, and in his first visit to New York, he came bearing special pieces that I will treasure very much.
It might be a little jarring to see me in a bow tie nowadays, but here is one that harmonizes quite well with my everyday look. Jake took the little bow tie in my logo and carved it into an oversize signet ring in solid silver, and created quite a handsome piece.
I’ll be using this to wax-seal my handwritten notes.
There is also this thumb ring, adorned with nothing but the tiny dents and inclusions it incurred in the creation process.
Secretly engraved with the letters of my real first name.
