Item of the Day: Sabre Jewelry

In Item of the Day, What's New by Jeff Prine

sabreOne of the residues from Christmas is all that used wrapping paper. Some people (cheapos) save pieces for future use, others chuck it out–hopefully in the recycle bin. While you may say that the torn, crumpled paper is sort of a tragic denouement, there’s still beauty and joy left it in.

New York designer and former model Lana Ogilvie of Sabre Jewelry finds beauty in even the rumpleness of the world.

With organic shapes and natural forms, Sabre explores the possibilities of jewelry making.

“I try to work with wax in unconventional ways, and design pieces that are more individual, almost as if the metal had been worked by hand. As an artist, there is a constant need to create. I think of myself first as an artist and jewelry is my current medium,” Ogilvie says.

Her silver folded ring is inspired by origami folds, but they might as well be by those crumpled Christmas wrappings too. The irregular folds (and tiny tears) make for a dramatic update to the classic cigar band.

Sabre Jewelry is manufactured in New York.
