Our customer Hassan @kelisli grew up in Heliopolis Egypt. Like myself , he had seen and experienced the art of the North West Coast in his youth and was deeply moved by it. He didn’t understand the connection but he knew it was deep and in his own words it was the style combined with reverence of nature that is expressed in each line that he loved. I too, feel this deep connection and pull towards this style. Neither of us can explain it but it’s real.
In the late seventies and early eighties formline style was experiencing a re-birth. It was hard to find new pieces in Vancouver. I’m speaking specifically of form line style. It makes me so happy to see what is being done today. The Northwest Coast art being made today is either equal or better than it’s ever been in the past. .
What’s different about this art is that it is like learning how to play the blues. There are some very basic rules but it's how you interpret the rules that give you your look. The finest pieces may appear as if they have broken the rules but upon close examination you will find that they haven’t, they have only been taken to the farthest edge, they’ve discovered a new room, as it were.. It’s the finding of the new ways to express this art that fascinates me. When an artist discovers a new way to do it , it amazes me. My work has always attempted to be traditional. Out of sheer respect, I never felt it was my place to take it away from that. .
I say I don’t understand my connection but upon reflection, it brought an order to my life that I felt I needed. It provided answers when there were none. It has been a salve to my soul when I needed that. It was a source of light when I most needed it. It was without a doubt a friend when I needed it. .

Our biomorphic rings are inspired by different aspects of the sea...in the case of our slender stacking rings, we were inspired by the beautiful kelp forests that are becoming more and more rare these days. Their shadows, their movements, and how within the folds you can find the most interesting treasures. We've simplified them into stacking rings set with amethysts, pink garnet, and citrine, or you can go for the pure form itself as a simple silver stacking ring unadorned with gems.
