Today’s jewelry report card is about discovering something new. We’ve chosen this artist’s jewelry account to follow for a few reasons. There is something a little entrancing, almost enchanting about the work of New York based jewelry designer Leila Du Mond of Cyril Studio. Launched in 2017, it is a new brand, with tons of potential! The pieces are made in the city by hand and retain a minimal but magic style. The crystals she uses are mounted in 14k or sterling,and bounce light beautifully of the human form. There is a sensuality about how they are made and worn, yet the are beautifully modern. The crystals remind me of antique pools of light pieces in theory, but her application of them is so different and well molded.
Firstly, her construction of the “crystals” seems to be lighter and uniquely mounted. Her hand carved examples seem almost molded to the sculptural fittings that surround them. Read about her process in a detailed an interesting interview here. She’s one to watch and you can do that from her instagram account where she posts some of her new pieces and one of a kind creations. Let’s see where her investigation into light takes us!
