Michael Raymond Designs Launches Limited Edition Fine Jewelry

Michael Raymond Pereira, owner and designer of Michael Raymond Designs, has announced the launch of his October 2012 limited-edition fine jewelry collection. The pieces, comprised of fine silver, brass, and gold-plated jewelry with innovative designs, will be available on a limited edition basis through the brand’s e-commerce site as well as at NYC’s Pop Up Jewelry Gallery through December 2012.  

Collections such as Animus, which mirrors animal body parts, and Tongue in Cheek, inspired by iconic objects like toy hot dogs and iPod headphones, are among the handmade, whimsical designs offered.

“I enjoy combining unusual elements that normally would not go together,” said Pereira. “I love to reinvent objects that capture my attention, like oddly shaped animal bones or pieces of ammunition. I imagine new functions for these things and use them to create a surprising new sense of style.”

Pereira comes from a family of jewelers. After shadowing his father for years, Michael Raymond moved to New York City to develop his own design style. These collections are his first launch into the market as a jewelry designer.
