The Jewelers Series // Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer

To walk into the Brooklyn studio of Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer is to be immersed in their world. The industrial space—all high ceilings and concrete floors—is filled with Genger’s oversized sculptures, the inspiration for Mayer’s jewelry. What she describes as “muscle and bone,” are the workings of an incredibly tactile collection created with unexpected materials, a dynamic fusion of two sensibilities—sculptor and jeweler. From knotted chokers dipped in candy-hued ceramics to bracelets rendered in climbing rope and brass chain, the collection has an inherent push-and-pull. Heavy and light, masculine and feminine, East Coast (Genger) and West Coast (Mayer). Collectively, it’s electric. In our increasingly digital world, it’s nice to have something to touch.
