This will be the 5th season for Variance in Paris
Variance makes rough fine jewelry.
We use the same materials as traditional fine jewelry but we approach it in a different way. We cut stones to highlight the natural texture, formation and color of the stone. We hand fabricate all metals and leave fire and tool marks to create texture.
We look to capture the nature of the stone, and preserve its inherent textures, color patterns, and light qualities rather than transforming them into a sparkly made object.
We live and make our jewellery in Santa Cruz, California
Our jewellery shows the earth, fire, and hand that it came from.
