Tina Frey is San Francisco-based designer creating modern designs in resin. Besides jewellery, her collection also includes everyday objects. The pieces in the collection are hand sculpted and when the clay design is completed, hand-made molds are created for each object. The molds are used to cast each item individually by hand in small batches by color. After the pieces are cast and removed from the mold, they are hand sanded.
I appreciate Frey’s honest way of working with each piece, creating a direct relationship or a “bond” between the designer, the piece and hopefully the individual who will eventually purchase it.
There is also strong potential in real wearability of her unique pieces for each design can easily become the star element or play the subdued part. Perfect example of sophisticated bold statement.
