In a world where jewelry design seems stagnant – we can’t count how many times we’ve seen a giant circle wrapped in leather or a brass bar necklace! – Metalepsis Projects presents us with shapes and combinations that feel like completely unchartered accessory territory. Started by bi-coastal founders, Astrid Chastka and Victoria Cho, this conceptual jewelry line oozes influences from art, architecture and science, creating out of this world pieces we’ve never seen before!
With one of the founders answering to the name of Astrid, it’s no surprise that the collection has a heavy science influence – metals are molded into unearthly shapes and stones don constellation-like patterns. It also wouldn’t be completely far off to say that these pieces literally look like they’re in orbit! We’re in love with the texture on the unfinished brass necklaces and the edgy crescent shapes on the rings and cuffs. Not to mention, is it anyone else’s pet peeve when a ring is too fragile on longer fingers or a necklace the size of a breast plate on a petite frame? Not too big in size, these pieces make a statement without taking up too much #ootd real estate, making them perfect for any body type! The fact that daintier metal jewelry can feel artsy, nerdy, powerful and sophisticated all at the same time puts Metalepsis Projects on a fashion planet of its own, and we like it.
What do you think? Whether this line is the breath of fresh air you’ve been looking for or is a little too Big Bang Theory to you – we want your thoughts!
