Alicia Hannah Naomi is a Melbourne, Australia based jewelry designer. Her pieces are made utilizing a lost-wax casting technique. They are hand carved in wax, cast in metal and finished by hand.
Naomi sees her work as a meditation on mountains and rugged terrain, evocative of their somber beauty. Her most dramatic pieces are the “crystal mountains” made using hand-cast, hand-dyed resin, giving each creation its own unique appearance due to the varying pigments. They have a severe, organic feel like that of snow tipped mountain peaks or blackened glaciers.

When I met the German-born designer Daniel Andresen in his studio in Antwerp last month, he was looking at yak hair. The hair, spun into wool yarn at a cooperative in Mongolia, was a new experiment for this young designer whose understated knitwear is quietly sold at directional stores like Lift in Tokyo and DAAD Dantone in Milan.
Andresen is understated himself, a quiet, contemplative man who approaches his work without fanfare. “The yak might not work for the knitting machines,” he thought out loud, “it’s too uneven.”
This is the kind of know-how that shows Andresen’s hands-on nature of work. And when I say “hands-on,” I mean exactly that. Everything Andresen makes he makes himself using a couple of old knitwear Brother machines that are “programmed” by punch cards. “This is my production team,” Andresen pointed at his girlfriend, when I asked him where his knitwear is produced.
