Gold atoms and silver gears
Young Russian brand 10.GRAN released first collection of jewelry. Designer Ivan Tengran used symbols of the exact sciences – physics and chemistry – and melted them into gold and silver. Chemical elements turned into brooches and molecules – in rings and earrings. Bestseller-steel gear ring. We figured out how this concept was born and what difficulties a young designer had to overcome.
How it all began
I was looking for the right visual and physical embodiment of my idea. It proved to be a precious metal. Designer jewelry, Maria Stern helped me at first. The production process proved more difficult than I expected, but that interest only grew. The epitome of large items such as brooches and double-ring gear is much more complicated than earrings or minimalist decorations.
About the concept
Coming up with the idea of the first collection, I kept returning to thoughts of some global systems. But what can be more serious and more global than a whole world? I turned to the exact sciences – physics and chemistry, which operates under the laws of all that surrounds us. So there brooches. One of them is a non-existent chemical element. I was looking for a form that would be visually pleasing – so there is a new element that is a component of 10.GRAN jewelry.
Another brooch – a symbol of physics textbook, which probably everyone remembers. Rings are chain molecules on your finger. Gears were created as opposed to mild forms – not only women, but also men buy them. There is a broken chain molecules ring, and most recently appeared ring with the words (eg, Fortuna is and Harmony).
