"The imperfections that come with producing each item by hand make them real, make them human—and that's something she encourages the wearer to relish."

Cindy hails from Detroit, so her industrial roots are the starting point for many of her angular, modern metal jewelry pieces. Though there’s definitely a clean, minimal edge to each piece, these gems definitely don’t come from an assembly line. They are made real and human by the imperfections that come with producing each item by hand—something that she encourages the wearer to relish. And each handcrafted piece is “named” after a muse in her everyday life—could be a piece of art, the words from a song or even an amazing meal. See, industrial designs can have a softer side.
