It’s no secret that I love contrasting elements when it comes to design. Warm against cool metal tones, course versus smooth textures, congruent shapes paired with organic ones.
When it came to designing the Mel Pendant (named after the Latin word for “honey”) I knew I needed one bold, earthy addition to the Tutela Collection.
Making this piece is a completely different experience for me. I am usually filled with adrenaline from the buzzing and clanking of my tools, but this one calms me. Softening the rigid edges of the brass into smooth, flowing lines. It’s like watching honey drip from the comb. I felt the same satisfaction the first time I draped it around my neck, and the second... and third. I don’t think that feeling will ever go away 🍯.
