Robert Lee Morris has been making organic jewelry and accessories long before ‘organic’ was popular. He famously designed them for Donna Karan in the ’80s and now he designs jewelry for Elizabeth and James (Olsens’ label), along with his own namesake label. Mr. Morris is more silversmith than designer. Some of his jewelry are still forged the old fashion way– metal against metal, in heat. His jewelry is more metal work, with a few gemstones here and there, nothing bling-y, at all. And lately, I have been on the search for not only organic jewelry, but symbolic ones at that. It may be the call of a new year, of possibilities, but I do believe in the power of symbols, talismans, amulets– whatever you may call it– there is energy in metal, stones. When I stumbled on Mr. Morris’ line, RLM Studio for QVC (apparently everyone is doing it!), I thought, ” This is the democratization of fashion at its best!”
What I ended up getting was the sterling silver infinity ring, a symbol that has meaning to me– not to mention its just plain gorgeous!
