Silicon

Designers: Elizabeth Slywka and Riley Ries

Behind the Design: Silicon is the second most abundant element on Earth. When linked with a pair of oxygen molecules, silica is created, which forms beautiful crystalized structures and becomes the main ingredient in sand. This was the inspiration of our collection which features warm and bold colors, structure and flow, and wire-wrapped crystal jewelry. The pink dress represents quartz, the most common silica crystal. Our hand-dyed two-piece garment features the layers of the Earth, and the third outfit embodies the elements of sand.
