Mowhawk Double Necklace

Ashley Vick's line of handmade metal jewelry is named after her great-grandmother, Filomena DeMarco--a nod to history and heritage also reflected in her work. Vick creates statement pieces that feel like a modern-day version of the heirloom jewels you might dream of inheriting from a relative or finding tucked away in the attic of an old house. The patina of her oxidized sterling silver and bronze rings, necklaces, and earrings gives them the feel of having been lovingly worn for years, and their various textures remind me of feathers and rocks, carefully collected and saved.
