My name is Caryn June Ronis. I am a New York-based jewelry designer with a background in Theatre, Art and Food. As I studied jewelry design and fabrication, I became fascinated with mixing metals with each other and other media. This love and my background allows me to create pieces that are dramatic and quirky and always tell a story. Often they will incorporate current events and pop culture to create a beautiful, one of a kind piece of history. I would love to create a piece of history, your history, just for you.
I love the feel and texture the elements bring to metal. Forging, etching, torching and oxidation bring each piece a story of its own; no two are ever alike. Check in to see what's new. Things are always changing, just like life!
Cocoon from The Patchwork Quilt Series
The Patchwork Quilt series was a happy accident born of necessity. I had a huge bowl of scraps from other projects, not to mention pieces that just didn't work, and I just started piecing them together. There are always more in the works, so keep an eye out for what's to come!
The Other Half of the Orange
In my husband's native Mexico, it is said that when you meet your soulmate, you meet the "otra media de la naranja", the other half of the orange, and together you make a whole orange. These pieces are inspired by him, the other half of my orange.
Twisted Wire/Broken Glass
2020 has taught me that we must find beauty in that which appears irredeemable, that we can take what is broken and turn it into something beautiful. These pieces are made from old wire, scraps of sterling silver and recycled car window glass.
