If Carly Margolis' jewelry line had a soundtrack it would be MGMT's Time To Pretend, replete with Native American, Egyptian and cosmic motifs, and a unique visual sensibility. “My aesthetic explores psychedelic realm and mythical landscapes, with an occasional element of camp or ironic spirituality,” Margolis says. With her artistically subversive line of jewelry, dubbed All for The Mountain, she integrates these themes into a collection of visually stunning necklaces, rings, cuffs and headpieces inspired by sacred objects of past and future.
Using oxidized bronze and silver, gold, brass, stones and other natural minerals as a template, her pieces radiate a new-age quality—substantial, yet contemporary, as well as fashion-forward. With names like The King Midas Ladder, a tiered necklace of bronze, meteor-like clusters, or Phalanx, a winged, North African-inspired neck piece, All for the Mountain is in a league of its own. And it doesn't stop there. The line also includes a collection of unconventional furniture, such as the Mysterious Energy Healing Table, a geometric, all-purpose masterpiece that could double as artwork. Pieces start at $100, and are available in custom sizes and finishes, demonstrating her commitment to artisanal craftsmanship.
