Drawn & Quartered

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.

    Haha that bow tie ring is so cute, and I love the thumb ring. I think jewellery is always nice with those hidden personal touches (statement of the flippin’ century, but you know what I mean!).

    The bow-tie ring is ridiculously amazing. It looks beautifully crafted and is has precise detailing. I’m not big on rings, but I would definitely wear something like this. Awesome article Izzy, and beautiful work from Jake.
