Adorn - - DESIGN AWARDS -

The de­signer in­cor­po­rated tra­di­tional tech­niques such as punch­ing and in­lay into the con­tem­po­rary piece of jew­ellery. His in­spi­ra­tion? The CCTV head­quar­ters build­ing in Beijing that has a loop with an open cen­tre. The nuevo ring is shaped with plat­inum and African black­wood. “To avoid be­ing pre­dictable, I punched the in­ner sleeve of the ring, so even if the ring is not be­ing worn there will al­ways be de­tails to dis­cover. The form is pretty sym­met­ri­cal in shape so an in­lay has been placed off cen­tre to be less con­ven­tional. African black­wood has been cho­sen for this piece due to its dark colour as it is a good con­trast, that lets the plat­inum and its tex­tures pop out,” said the de­signer.
