"Repetitive patterns have always fascinated me. The methodical recurrence of a single element, as a building block for a bigger structure, has a powerful effect which grows the more the unit is used.
Every piece of jewelry is made of hundreds of units. At first the units had no influence on the jewelry (except for the one I intended them to have), but as I added more and more of them they started to have a growing impact on the shape and flexibility of the jewelry.
The creation of this collection always involves dealing with the conflict between the material and its "will" and my intentions as the designer." - Lital Mendel

Building on their friendship of over a decade, in January of 2008 the pair struck up an effortless partnership designing jewelry out of a little studio in Northern California.
The allure of ancient sculptural forms and subtle textures of surfaces in the natural world influence their work. These textured details in the metal work have been part of the brand's very soul since it’s inception, transforming aspects of the old into modern elegance that transcends time.
