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. They see jewelry as a form of language and self expression, one that is inherently human and connects us to our personal histories. Ochre Objects is a fine jewelry line founded by designer Cynthia Horrigan and based in Los Angeles, CA. The collection is inspired by art history, vintage jewelry, modernist sculpture, and the American Southwest. Each piece is crafted from the finest materials using ancient and modern metalsmithing techniques. Their studio is committed to using ethically and sustainably sourced materials and environmentally conscious studio practices.
