This Etsy jewelry shop is called Laminar designed by Melanie Shelor. Her geometric jewelry explores shapes using silver in a number of unexpected ways. Her designs are minimalist and basic, consisting of earrings, rings and infinite lines.

Some of her pieces are Oval Drop earrings, composed of one oval shape with a line run through. A highlight piece is a hexagonal ring that's dainty and edgy at the same time, while featuring another hexagonal ring that's much thicker and punctuated with holes.

She uses shapes in an unconventional way, for instance her Duo Square earrings consist of one continuous line that hooks into a loop and finishes off with a curved edge. Her collection is inventive to say the least and I'm sure will inspire jewelry artists everywhere.
