The dainty heirlooms Grandma tries to bestow on you have never been your style.
Danny Fox’s industrial rings may be the understatement you’re after.
Fox is a self-taught artist and calligrapher, and his jewelry shows a looping, curving joy. Though his lettering leans toward intricate, he strips accessories to the bare minimum. He whittles wax forms in his South Philly studio, then hits up the pros on Jeweler’s Row for casting (each piece has a satisfying heft).
Choose a ring that skims two fingers or a cube with geometric cutouts. Instead of stones, holes and notches serve as adornments. Some items are pure silver; others are oxidized to steely gray tones. And for all those angles and straight lines, Fox makes sure every design sits comfortably.
And is worthy of future generations.
