It all started with backbone
We have all had periods and situations in life which wear us down, you ride that metaphorical rollercoaster. Something drives you to soldier on…. you have found your backbone.
Backbone conveys itself; a sculptural and tactile 3D form representing the protective structure of vertebrae with some pieces leading to expose the spinal cord leaving a precarious heart swinging like a pendulum.
From the past, this is the present…. bring on the future
Janus, the Roman God with two faces looking from the past and to the future often seen to represent transitions, beginning and passages.
Formed by the outlined silhouette of a man or woman. One side features subtle details of a happy excited face, on the reverse other any angry grumpy mood. Which mood are you in, you decide?
The turning point
The origin of this idea lies in a sense of constriction and frustration to the extent that you snap. You take inspiration from that experience move on and change direction.
Apex contains subtle details within the knot, in particular the ‘strangle knot’ which latches itself to the shaft. The knot squeezes and wears down the shaft so much that the stones are practically exploding from the ends. The pressure is nearly too much, so lighten the load and wear something fun.
Origin 31’s ethos is to #letyoubeyou. We don’t create jewellery that emulates what else is out there, so to us, standing out and being yourself is important.
Our brand is for anyone and everyone, which is why we don’t use professional models in our photoshoots, but instead use friends of the brand, from all walks of life. They turn up to the shoot being themselves, apply their own make-up, do their own hair, and wear their clothes and Origin 31 jewellery in their own way.
As a result, the pictures we create are organic, they’re not contrived, and we capture spontaneous, fun moments – no posing allowed! To ensure you see the raw aspect of the person – and their personality – we don’t re-touch our pictures. What you see is really what you get.
We hope you think they and our jewellery look great, and please share your own pictures of Origin 31 on Instagram. Tag @Origin31 and #letyoubeyou – we love to see our jewellery in action.
