Army Of Me
Another recent jewellery brand find is the Vancouver based Army of Rokosz, designed by Andrea Rokosz. I came across the across brand on Pinterest when I found a photo of a bag she'd collaboratively designed with ORA. The concho on the front, designed by Andrea, had me sold immediately. It seems it had everyone else sold too since it's sold out.
There is also a stunning fringed leather concho neckpiece, which is also a collaboration with ORA. Be still my beating heart!
Basically I'd wear pretty much every single thing in the shop. It's perfection.
She describes her her approach to jewellery making as creating "small wearable sculptures, employing ancient techniques to produce powerful pieces that archive the present and have symbolic meaning woven through them".
The line is constructed primarily out of silver, with bronze, brass, copper, semi precious stones and raw crystals accenting some of the pieces. She strives to continually "grow her designs and stretch her artistic boundaries through the exploration of new techniques and experimentation with new materials that incite her artistic spirit".
All Army Of Rokosz pieces are made in limited quantities and by hand with special care and attention to detail, leaving each piece with characteristics that make it unique to its wearer.
