A Peek at the Deoxy Collection

 "Deoxy" is short for "deoxyribonucleic acid" more commonly known as "DNA".

Here is just a small taste of some of the ideas that went into the design of this line.

"DNA" as a Source of Inspiration:
It is amazing to me that so many different people exist and that we all begin exactly the same way. No matter how different we appear, or how opposite our interests or thoughts are, we have the same foundation. DNA is a structural double helix, and our galaxy (the Milky Way) has the exact same structure. How fitting that the smallest part of what makes us individuals is just the same as our local universe...

Symbolism is Built Into the Design:
This collection shows different ways of playing with helices and representing a double helical structure through forms of wearable art. The resulting pieces are both organic and galactic in form, playing on the similarity between our galaxy and our genetic makeup.

The collection is currently composed of 3 different kinds of necklaces and 2 different kinds of earrings, all in a variety of colours. Some pieces of the collection are featured in this post.
The Necklaces:
Triple Helix - 3 Deoxy chains of the same length
Replication - 3 Deoxy chains of varying length to give a cascading effect
Chromo - A single chain in a thicker wire gauge than the previous two

The Earrings:
Gene's Earrings - 2 Deoxy links, a very simple and elegant look
Clone's Earrings - 5 Deoxy links branching out from one another as though Gene's Earrings are in the process of being cloned ;)
