Based in Upstate NY, Rand Papele is designed and handcrafted by Jude Rand and Eben Papele.
Equally inspired by the very old and the very new, the aesthetic is formed by life lived Upstate.
The collection reflects many influences - from the asymmetry of the natural world to Japanese and Scandinavian design and the geometric motifs found throughout many folk art traditions.
Using traditional metalsmithing techniques and antique tools, simple shapes become patterns and symbols wrought in metal.
The work is hand fabricated in 14K gold, sterling silver, linen cord and Japanese glass beads, balancing both traditional and non-traditional materials.
Rand Papele uses environmentally safe studio practices, recycled metals and sustainably sourced materials. They also love to collaborate with couples to make custom wedding bands in silver, gold and platinum.
