As long time friends and former studio mates, Pamela, owner of Frances May, & Anna, designer of AK Studio, devised a plan to create a small body of work using fine metal and stones, the first for both of them. At the heart of the design is a circled dot, a universally powerful symbol with many meanings including the sun, the heart beat of our solar system. Comprised of turquoise, the circled dot takes on a deeper meaning with turquoise’s properties to clear one’s mind and protect the soul. The capsule collection includes a ring, necklace & mismatched earring set made from 14K gold, 2.5 mm diamonds and turquoise from Anna’s home state Arizona. The collaboration was a natural pairing of two artists who have different creative processes but a common appreciation for all things beautiful. These pieces were designed and fabricated in Portland, OR.
