St. Eloy is a jewelry line designed by artist Emily Counts. Inspired by geological formations, medieval craftsmanship, and mid-century modernism this collection provides objects that are embodiments of both the past and the future. Traditional techniques and materials are employed, particularly in the hand carving of the wax or clay models used for each design. Cast bronze, silver, and porcelain pieces find a sculptural balance between geometric and organic forms, while the more painterly beaded necklaces focus on line, contrast, and color. Each piece is made by hand with care and attention to detail.
