Collected Edition combines a love of nature and vintage iconography with modern production techniques to create jewelry that's a fusion of the two worlds. Petals, branches, and arrows are at the core of the Brooklyn-based shop, which is spearheaded by former bridal designer Kasia Wisniewski. Her beautiful metallic pieces have a modern-yet-timeless feel to them and look as though they've been crafted by hand. In actuality, however, it's 3D printing that produces these whimsical accessories.
To create such an elegant aesthetic, Wisniewski uses a combination of digital design and hand building. She starts by drafting the pieces in a 3D modeling program, but rather than using generative technology or modifying scans, Wisniewski constructs elements like stamens, leaves, and bristles by hand. A wax model is printed and then used to cast the jewelry in the premium metals. Afterwards, each piece is clean and polished.
Collected Edition pieces are perfect for weddings or special occasions, but they are understated enough for everyday wear. Check out the entire collection on Etsy.
