Carly Margolis Does it Again

The Mothership collection has finally landed. Intergalactic soul in the form of hardened metals, lithesome fibers, and buttery leather. Pieces that are enmeshed in abstract detail with a tribute to the spirit realm—something so intangible yet so apparent. Jewelry designer Carly Margolis brings earthed elements and the vastness of outer space into one, something that she constantly manages to do so beautifully. Her All For The Mountain line has always been inundated with these characteristics, universal details that are repeated, but not duplicated in the new Mothership collection. This time around, naturally-occurring symmetry is a prevailing theme along with her signature leanings toward innate disproportion.

Each and every object is noteworthy, deserving of praise, but I feel the need to wax poetic about my favorites. The Mothership Neckalce may appear self-explanatory given it's resemblance to a UFO, but it takes on a whole new character when you add tassels. Heirloom Planet, is a necklace and ring set that reminds me of an undiscovered orbital body, bound by its rocky terrain. Oxidized brass is the template for the Cuboid necklace and cuff, an uneven cluster of other-worldly formations. The Crater necklace bears an uncanny resemblance to those plots clearly visible on the moon. If I had each one of these pieces, my life would be complete. See the entire collection:
