San Francisco jewelry designer Vanessa Gade‘s new Forme Collection launched over the weekend at L.A.’s Dwell on Design exhibition. Ushering in more of Gade’s streamlined, architectural approach to jewelry, the new pieces diverge from her past work with perfect circles and rectangles to focus on irregular geometric shapes in sterling silver, oxidized silver and 14K gold.
The collection ($75-$350) won’t be available for purchase until July, but Gade is offering a sneak peek of her latest necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings on her web site. Like her previous collections, her current pieces channel undercurrents of Japanese and Scandinavian design. The presence of delicate chains in many pieces adds complexity to the spare shapes. With their clean lines and modern aesthetic, Gade’s jewelry is understated in a way that makes it easy to where everyday, but is, upon closer inspection, a wearable work of art.
