edmdesigns' Profile

Hi there and thank you for stopping into my bit of bandwidth on Etsy.

You will find designs and jewelry pieces that touch the spirit of those with an appreciation for the lifestyle and old world adornments of the vintage eras. Influenced by my utmost respect for the brilliant and skilled craftsmanship of vintage watch movements, master artisans of yesteryear hand created these intricate and fascinating little worlds of synchronicity and artistic beauty. To be able to repurpose them and allow these mini landscapes of art find new life in today's times gives me tremendous pleasure.

Most of my designs feature the styles and manufacturers of fine watch pieces from the mid to late 1800's and into the early 1940's. I try most often to preserve the integrity of the focal movement and will only utilize pieces that can no longer serve their original purpose.

I work hard to ensure the visual integrity of the vintage pieces being used. In many cases, such as many of our cufflinks, rings and necklaces, etc., our products are professionally soldered for pieces that are of the highest quality.

We are also pleased to have been featured in a number of jewelry and fashion magazines, including, but certainly not limited to, the March, 2011 issue of Jewelry Artist; the Spring/Summer, 2010 issue of Toni & Guy; issue of the June, 2010 issue of La Vie Est Belle; the Spring/Summer, 2010 Middle Eastern and Worldwide issues of Fairmont luxury lifestyle magazine; the May, 2010 issue of Viva La Moda; the March, 2010 issue of Wolfram; the November 19th issue of Time Out New York; August, 2009 issue of Positive as well as the COVER and interior of the February, 2009 issue of Auxiliary and several times since then. GQ Australia, Vogue & Vogue UK, Germany, Esquire, and so many others...My work has also been featured in many Jewelry making books, and Fashion/Trending Blogs, but I don't have enough space here to list them all. My portfolio is quite impressive and I work hard to earn the trust of these editors, fashionistas and Social media professionals. When every aspect of my work is scrutinized for all its critical & professional techniques and creative aspects; to pass their standards is no easy task. The work speaks for itself.

Please don't be shy - feel free to write if there is something on your mind or if you have any questions.
