comments: konzuk is a jewelry line that is so simple and beautiful it will make you cry. ok, so, maybe i teared up a little the first time i saw this jewelry. the pieces shown above are made from hand cast and tinted concrete with gold or stainless steel. the scale, volume, and material of the pieces are painstakingly minimal but so well balanced. they are so thoughtfully proportioned that you can almost imagine them as prototypes for large scale sculptures. please check out the link above and marvel at the exquisite simplicity that is konzuk.
