This month’s installment of Makers Alongside is a bracelet designed exclusively for HDH by Allison Jenetopulos, the metalsmith behind the Miami-based brand Avrocomy. Using skills gained during her education at the Art Institute of Chicago, Allison began making what she calls “wearable sculptures” for herself, but the attention drawn from others encouraged her to start a full-time business, and thus, Avrocomy was born in 2013.
Rather than designing for mass production, Allison finds joy in making each piece with her own two hands, and draws inspiration from architecture and art deco. Such influence is apparent in the angular shapes in our brass Geometric Cuff (shown below), available exclusively at HDH starting September 28. The delicacy of this piece is balanced by its statement-making diamond shapes.
