The Mesmerizing Reliquary Ring by Stern Design Works

Rebecca and Cameron Stern of Stern Design Works create wonderful jewelry designs, often inspired by nature.   Their snow necklaces are made from casting molten silver in actual snow and coming up with unexpected, complex features on the cooled silver.  Their “Flora” collection features oak and gingko leaf pendants.

I recently saw them at the Hester Street Fair, and they have a new collection of teensy, eensy, weensy farm animals set in tiny resin landscapes.  The red rooster necklace was long gone, but the pink pig, the black and white cow, and the orange hen were utterly adorable.

And then there is the Reliquary Collection, a mesmerizing set of glass pendants and rings with moving particles of metal, sand, or 1 mm glass balls floating freely inside them.  They are wonderful designs with almost a Jules Verne-like Steampunk feeling.  The ring in the video has meditative qualities, as watching the tiny glass balls roll around inside the glass dome can induce a trance-like state, even in the middle of the bustling market.

Stern Design Works will be selling their jewelry at Artists and Fleas market in Williamsburg through the holiday season and also at the Columbus Circle Holiday Market in December.
