About

Gilded and Grounded

Hilary once let a growing collection of necklaces become so tangled around her neck that she literally wasn't able to take them off for four years. The positive reaction to that accidental piece inspired her to learn the art of deliberate metal manipulation in San Francisco. She sometimes prefers to let jewelry create itself with little human intervention. She supports the liberation of expression, removed from the confines of human expectations. The dadaists were totally onto something.

After creating a series of "west coast" pride pieces, Vittrock was born. Each piece in the collection is covered in blood, sweat, and lulz. Whether evoking a mysterious moonscape or channelling playful freneticism, Vittrock seeks to stretch your imagination, strengthen your spine, and crack you the fuck up.
