ochre [oh-ker] an earthy pigment containing ferric oxide, typically with clay, varying from light yellow to brown or red.

The history of human adornment traces its origins back to the use of yellow ochre. Ancient humans spread this pigment all over their skin and the walls of their dwellings as the earliest form of ornamentation and decoration.

Ochre Objects is an exploration of this essential need to express oneself through adornment. We see jewelry as a form of language and self expression, one that is inherently human and connects us to our personal histories. Our jewelry is inspired by antiquities, art history and ancient relics—designed and crafted through a modernist sculptural lens. All pieces are produced by hand in small batches from recycled and responsibly sourced materials in New York City and Los Angeles.
