Inspired by ironwork found through the country Pyramid’s Southern Gates Collection invokes a feeling of the past, of strength and endurance. The delicate designs once forged in iron represent a legacy that stands firm through the presence of iron gates in cities and towns across the country and around the globe.
When I viewed the collection they reminded me of: 1. The Game of Thrones (it’s obvious)2. Eating donuts at Jazz Fest (It’s not obvious). Yeah, I said donuts at Jazz Fest while writing about sterling silver jewelry. I’ll explain….
At Pyramid Studios we are music freaks–most of our work is solitary & self starting stuff – a kind of autonomous collective steered by Dave, Denise, music and caffeine. Give us those and we’re happy campers. So, on days off, we naturally seek the same–it keeps us happy. On vacation music and caffeine are taken to the extreme. (At this point the boss is wondering if I remember I’m supposed to be writing about those ornate fence and gate designs in sterling. I’m getting there.)
Mornings before the fest- and some late nights- were spent in the French Quarter binging on espresso and beignets dipped in powdered sugar, listening to music sneak out of windows, doorways and over balconies. And most of those windows, doorways and balconies were surrounded by–yep–wrought iron! The French Quarter is a showplace, a museum, for some of the most beautiful wrought iron designs in America.
So the filigree, scroll and tracery patterns found in the Southern Gates jewelry collection reminds me of espresso, music, the laughter of great friends, and the donuts of New Orleans – utterly unique, yet familiar.
We hope this sterling silver jewelry brings such good feelings to you!
