'People never get the roses while they can still smell them'
Melbourne born creative style collides with raw-Russian blood coursing through the veins of each piece of Broken Lock jewellery; a true representation of our physical emotions and cultural influences brought to life through precious and premium materials.
Each piece is a unique connection between artist and wearer. Crafted, carved and sculpted; matte, oxidised, bright or polished, gold, silver and brass, worn with pride. We are inspired by the way music constantly dances on the line of art and influence; and the natural sub-cultures which impact our lives so profoundly.
Broken Lock is a metaphor; a daily reminder that you can do anything you want to. No door is locked, and if it is, you have the ability to break it; the ability to take what is yours.
Broken: ruptured; divided into parts violently. Lock: any device for stopping the motion of a mechanism
‘Given; it is a treasure to wear as a reflection of the moment on which it is received, for we do not remember days, only moments.’
Wow, what an amazing year!
