Marmol Radziner Jewelry is a natural extension of the architecture firm Marmol Radziner, which integrates a range of design services, including landscape, interior, exterior, furniture, prefab and jewelry design. The same master craftsmen who work on full-scale building details and furniture in the Marmol Radziner metal shop, handcraft rings, bracelets, earring and pendants from bronze. All of Radziner jewelry pieces are proportioned for both men and women and are available in a natural, distressed, dark and a unique "torched" finish.
The same award winning work that goes into the large scale architecture projects are also fully incorporated into the jewelry line making for a aesthetic that is vibrant, dynamic and minimal. Marmol Radziner’s residential projects include homes for Tom Ford former creative director of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, actors Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher , and musicians Flea and Anthony Kiedis. Other featured custom site built homes include the Vienna Way Residence and Altamira Residence (feature article in Architectural Digest).
Equally compelling are the boldly modernist homes Marmol Radziner designs from the ground up, typically employing bluestone, cedar, schist, and stretches of glass that “extend rooms into the landscape,” says Ron Radziner, who cofounded the firm with Leo Marmol in 1989. Presently,the duo is now working on houses in Nova Scotia and California and an architecture-and-design center at the Palm Springs Art Museum. And their well-regarded prefab division devises eco-friendly building systems that are raising the bar for modular residential design.
Marmol Radziner Jewelry began when Design Principal Ron Radziner, FAIA, couldn't find any men's jewelry that was minimal, yet solid and strong. Remembering a piece of metal he once found on the beach and wore as a bracelet, Ron designed a cuff. He asked the metal shop craftsmen to fabricate it with the same dark patina as the hardware in the Vienna Way Residence. Soon after, Ron's wife, Robin Cottle, and a few architects jumped in to design pieces they wanted, eventually creating a collection.
