Bright Apple Lights Statement Cuff


The Bright Apple Lights collection is inspired by the hustle and bustle of New York City and the true reason I travel there often; to see Phish. Once my eyes caught hold of the large Ocean Jasper cabochons, I was instantly reminded of the bright lights that glow from the skyscrapers in the city at night. The Moss Agate is an ode to the Hudson River.

Each piece has its own unique way of nodding to Phish.

The last and final piece to the Bright Apple Lights collection.

When I first picked up the Ocean Jasper cabochon that is set in this cuff, I thought of the “rising tides and ocean walls” that crash up to the city at night. I knew I had to make this with the mindset that Trey portrayed before he played Water in the Sky during one of his acoustic sets in Georgia, during February of 2018. Trey told us about the atmosphere being a fluid and the ocean and the atmosphere both being waves that crash on the beach making it sounds so beautiful. You can get lost while looking at this cut of Ocean Jasper, imagine the city lights shining bright on the Hudson River waves while they crash into the wall barriers.
