How incredibly gorgeous are these rings by Dawes Design?? Designer Jennifer Dawes has some serious metal smithing skills! On her website it's explained that they're made to be stacked and can even be bought and worn interweaving different collections. Not only are they stunning and each handmade they're also completely Eco friendly. She uses recycled gold, conflict free diamonds and responsibly mined stones and has created Sustainably Beautiful which is her initiative to design jewelry with social and environmental accountability.
I was introduced to this line by my friend Allison Renshaw who's very good friends with Jennifer and an amazing artist herself. Allison paints incredible abstract pieces using mixed media and has shown all over the country. She had an exhibition at the Oceanside Museum of Art last year and I was absolutely blown away by the magnificence of each piece. I own a small Renshaw and it's literally one of my prized possessions, she's definitely one to watch.
