Slantt is a small sculptural line of jewelry designed and handmade by Jennifer Rodgers in her studio in Austin, Texas. The line is modern, imaginative, and distinct. Inspiration is drawn from architecture, art, objects, textiles, and natural forms. The line’s evolution in material and technique is guided by a focus on process, abstraction, and an experimentation of material, shape, and line.
Remaining true to the careful practice of a small studio, all work is fabricated and finished by hand in the studio using traditional metalsmithing techniques with an emphasis on craftsmanship and artistry. Slight imperfections and variations are embraced as evidence of a handcrafted practice.
Slantt is committed to ethical & environmentally low impact and sustainable practices. Jewelry production, procurement of materials, and sustainable studio practices are guided by this commitment. Recycled metals are used whenever possible, and all materials are manufactured and sourced through ethically responsible vendors based in the USA. Jennifer works with independent skilled artisans based in New York City & New Mexico to fabricate cast metal elements from recycled materials. Every order is thoughtfully wrapped and shipped in eco-friendly recycled packaging materials.
I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do… Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you. ~ Frida Kahlo
