Mark Davis Designer Showcase, November 26-27
by Lexy Tanner on November 5th, 2010
Mark Davis bakelite jewelry is akin to postmodern “ivory” masterpieces. The exacting techniques of working the bakelite are similar to those employed for natural ivory, but without ivory’s associated ecological devastation. In addition, the bakelite offers a range of colors and patterns that are unique and remarkable in their own right.
Mark’s expert use and adaptation of alternative materials is one reason that his jewelry is so special. By applying the exacting techniques of the haute joaillerie to materials not traditionally considered “fine,” Mark has created collections remarkable for their freshness and exceptional distinctiveness.
