Made in Brooklyn, New York
K/ller Collection was founded by designers Katie Deguzman and Michael Miller in 2010. The pair met while studying furniture design at Parsons School of Design. Their venture came about after graduation when both started creating jewelry for private clients. The K/ller Collection aesthetic is formed through studies of choppers, rusted tools, alchemy, and androgyny and created mainly with oxidized, rough-hewn metals delicately cast over skeletal organic materials. The look has a romantic impression of time, a rebellious notion of grit, and a gentle familiarity of nature.
Every piece of K/ller Collection is made in the U.S.A, and most pieces are handmade in their studio in Brooklyn, New York. The majority of the jewelry is cast of 100% recycled metal and any porcupine quills and horns used are by-products from the farming industry. In October 2014, K/ller Collection was the grand prize winner of the CFDA/Lexus Eco-Fashion Challenge.
