About This Project

After years of designing for print and then web, I lost touch with the hands-on element of the creative process that drew me to design in the first place.


I wanted to fill the void of human hands in my creative process and figure it out in a way I could own, using my interest in the Bauhaus movement, William Morris and Paul Klee, along with inspiration from my Filipino heritage and its craft tradition.


I decided to make tangible things by mixing my digital design know-how with the man-made process and this resulted in jewelry, specifically chain necklaces featuring meticulously hand-painted, graphic-design-driven pendants made of polished, hand-carved wood.
