Design Daily: Marmol Radziner JewelryAuthor:Sarah Virginia White
Necklaces, bracelets and rings, oh my!—the unisex jewelry line from Los Angeles architecture firm Marmol Radziner got an infusion of new items recently, with additions to the small collection it launched in 2010. Frustrated by the lack of attractive, simple jewelry available for men, architect Ron Radziner personally tackled the issue, designing his own creations from industrial brass and bronze.
In a handy bit of repurposing, Marmol Radziner manufactures its jewelry line in the firm’s downtown workshop, where craftsmen were already cutting, molding and welding metal into building details for client’s homes. Made from commercial-grade metal, the handcrafted jewelry designs are blistered, blackened or polished to a high sheen, creating finishes that range from raw to refined.
My picks are the simple bronze bangles [at top]. I’d stack a few of each color up my arm to get a fabulous ombré effect (and build my biceps—talk about your muscular metal). I love that the distressed and polished finishes will develop a patina over time; from $175 each, in small and medium sizes.
Find the unisex collection on the Marmol Radziner website and at three retailers in the LA area: Hammer Museum Store; Guild in Venice; and OK in Hollywood.
