Son and grandson of notable, innovative jewelers, Dylan has blazed his own path into museum collections, multiple awards, and New York’s Fashion Week.
He is a self-confessed modernist, who seeks to create wearable art that is in tune with contemporary culture.
Here is his deconstructed silver bracelet, reduced to its underlying structure and hand-hammered for an unexpected touch of texture.
The loops of hammered silver are decorated with a spiral, symbol of the river of life, and rounded, pounded, domes of silver that join the loops together.
The ingenious clasp is a magical, sparkling druzy. Druzies are naturally occurring crystals that form within some rocks.
This glittering stone, with its icy hue and fiery sparks, adds to the archaic look of the piece.
Archaic, a bit rough-hewn because of the subtle hammer marks, yet definitely contemporary, and elegant in a non-formal way.
You may wear the bangle with the druzy on top, on either side, or, on the bottom of the wrist, so it is a surprise when you move your arm.
A spectacular piece of sculptural jewelry that can be worn with sweaters, suits, or dresses, and will always excite attention and admiration.
Enjoy it now; future generations will, as well.
