Stellar, is a new collection of concrete-and-diamond jewelry inspired by iconic 20th century kinetic sculptures and modern art. Stellar echoes the architectural principles of balance, rhythm, and harmony to symbolize the delicate art of achieving balance in our busy lives.
Konzuk’s move from the fast-paced city to a remote coastal location provided a new venue for inspiration. Typically influenced by art, design and architecture, designer Karen Konzuk found her attention drawn to the landscape around her. Each piece reminds individuals to find moments of solitude to connect with their thoughts, each other, or their surroundings.
“The collection is about taking a moment to appreciate things like the stars in the night sky,” says Konzuk. Appropriately each piece is named after a something in the star system (other wise known as stellar).
The Stellar designs feature authentic diamond dust embedded in black-tinted concrete. The sparkle of real diamond residue, re-purposed into jewelry, elevates the tastefulness of the minimalist designs. Each piece of jewelry is individually handcrafted in the designer/maker studio, resulting in subtle variations that make each piece unique.
