modern cufflinks

March 13, 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter taking metal smithing classes, Matthew Smith realized that making jewelry would be a great way to combine his graphic design skills and his love of making objects.

Inspired by mid-century modern design, he started Matthew Smith Studios in Houston in 2010.

Later that year, the Wake Forest (NC) University grad moved his jewelry business to the popular River Arts District in Asheville.

Smith’s Orbit line is his best-selling design. The optical pattern, created with concentric circles, get attention.

The sleek and elegant pieces are made from sterling silver with either wood or colored resin inlay, like the Node necklace ($145) pictured below.

The Orbit series ranges from $85 for small post earrings to $225 for the cuff links (pictured above). Available in a variety of colors, the jewelry features an oxidized and brushed finish.
