Audra Azoury works out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, designing cut metal jewelry by hand with the help of modern cutting edge technology. All of her charms are composed of materials from the USA.
This necklace is a piece from the exclusive custom line created by Azoury and inspired by the Frick's architectural elements. Featured in this collection is a quatrefoil design element that can be found in the balustrade at Clayton, the Frick family’s château-style mansion in Pittsburgh.
The charm is stainless steel and 5/8" in diameter. Chain is sterling plated and adjustable to 18".
Our three rivers and rich land, abundant in natural resources, fueled an industrial age of iron, glass and steel. From Earth and industry a proud town emerged. Steel bridges span our rivers and connect our diverse neighborhoods. We have seen once booming communities turn to ghost towns, and once again begin to flourish. We have watched as our once polluted rivers and skies turned from gray back to blue. We have proven that we are more than survivors, we are innovators and achievers.
I join industrial materials, modern cutting technology and gritty urban finishes with clean, subtle designs to create jewelry which is both visually interesting, and also a conversation starter. I am interested in the stories that our surroundings have to tell. Our world is shaped by our actions. How will our actions, and the actions of future generations affect our landscapes and environment?
