The item you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to being 100% handmade and designed with unique materials.

Todd Pownell uses unique casting techniques and an upside-down stone setting style to give his jewelry line a new edge. About his designs, Todd says, “I like to think of my designs as evolving from an emotional state to an aesthetic experience and back again. Romanticism is a powerful influence. The interaction of dark and light metals mixed with fine gold and diamonds combine to evoke a strong sense of mystery and sublime nature. The diamonds are bead set upside-down onto the surface in pave’ or scattered across the piece. This reverse setting effectively captures and reflects light in a succession of broad flashes from the oblique angles creating a feeling of twilight.”
