Rand Papele was born of the shared vision of partners Jude Rand and Eben Papele. We met twenty years ago and have been collaborating ever since. It is our desire to create personal objects in our own language of shapes, patterns and symbols that references traditional folk handcrafts as well as modernist schools of thought.
Starry, Starry Night
Jewelry designers Jude Rand and Eben Papele hand cut and hammer each piece of jewelry in their Upstate New York studio so that no two pieces are exactly alike. Blending geometric motifs with folk art traditions, they are equally enamored with the very old and the very new.
Inspired by the starry sky, this delicate necklace is highlighted by strands of hand-oxidized sterling silver punctuated by polished torch-formed "stars."
