Last weekend, my husband and I were wandering around the East Village and quite by chance we came across Hannah Clark’s shop. Glancing through the windows and seeing the lovely jewelry and charming ambiance, we couldn’t help but take a look inside. All of her jewelry was perfection, but I particularly liked the Clay 6-prong ring. He rings all had a character and texture to them that I have not really seen elsewhere.
Hannah uses a number of different techniques when crafting her jewelry, some ancient and traditional, some completely improvisational. She describes her work as a sort of mini-sculpture as she carves, molds and shapes wax and other materials to make the original model. After that she makes a mold and casts the final pieces in various metals. She often works with antique diamonds and you can tell. Her stones really have a lovely depth and color to them. She also works with her clients to help them select the perfect stone for their special rings.
You can check out her blog or website or, better yet, check out her store at 60 E. 4th St. New York, NY. She has many beautiful pieces to see other than her amazing engagement and wedding rings. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
