The chunky jewelry pieces that make up the collection Sticks+Stones by Simone Ferkul, a recent Bachelor of Interior Design graduate from Ryerson University based in Toronto, Ontario, are perfect for the summer season. Full of warmth, they are predominantly made out of wood and rope with accents of brass, which creates a balance between natural and industrial elements.
According to its website, "Characterized by angles, intersecting elements, and craft, [Sticks+Stones by Simone Ferkul] reexamines traditional crystal models through material capacity." The bold geometric shapes are what really makes them statement-making designs.
Sticks+Stones by Simone Ferkul is comprised of bracelets and necklaces. With a tribal-esque vibe, the line "seeks to reconnect designer, maker, and wearer to develop holistic objects that respond to the mass production of consumer goods."
