Each year, inspired by the works of artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella and Jeff Koons, the designers of Austin-based jewelry brand Her New Tribe release a new collection of shapes, then change the color palette. for the next seasonal change.
In 2018, Ashley Stovall and Stephanie Duncan blended their backgrounds in fashion and sculpture to launch a line of architectural earrings hand-formed from clay. Playing with proportions and “a very intentional color palette,” says Duncan, the reception to their first release of smart, clever shapes was gratifying. “We saw an instant visceral reaction to this earring, women can’t decide which color to choose because they love them all.”
