Modern Monograms

A modern take on traditional monograms, these fluid, platinum silver pendants by Marion Cage are inspired by painter Jill Moser's swift brush strokes. An elegant and exciting collaboration between two prolific artists, each pendant joins the passion of both disciplines through handmade, delicate letters. The height of painting and design in a wearable work of art, this piece makes an understated yet sophisticated statement. Strung on a rolled, silk cord. Handmade in New York and Louisiana.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Marion Cage McCollam and Jill Moser

Challenged by jewelry designer Marion Cage McCollam's invitation to collaborate on a wearable alphabet, painter Jill Moser inked an original typography, creatively joining abstract art and the familiarity of modern letters. Fusing the language of art and architecture, their sterling silver "Lettres Collection" exemplifies each artists' tendency for reinterpreting traditional objects. In this case, the result is "a true marriage of art and design," says McCollam.

Cons

  • It won't stay clasped
  • Nearly lost it twice

Best Uses

  • Dress Up or Down
  • Going Out

Comments about "LETTRES" COLLECTION - SILVER:

My wife can't wear it with the furnished cord. The clasp will not stay fastened. She will either have to use a different cord necklace or use a silver chain. She gets compliments on the letter, but it is too easliy unhooked as is.
