We had an amazing year here at LACE. What started as a personal side project 3 years ago has blossomed into an incredible venture for us. The growth of our brand this past year has been especially overwhelming. We just want to recap some of our best moments this year.
LACE @ LACMA
Earlier this year, we produced our first complex, interlocking steel necklace in collaboration with Exone. This was truly a technological feat that highlights advancement in 3D metal printing technology as well as an extraordinary artistic endeavor. This summer, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art ( LACMA) officially acquired the Catena Steel Necklace for their permanent Collection.
“Jenny translates the complex line-based geometries of Oyler Wu’s architectural projects into jewelry and brings a high level of technical skill to the crowded 3D-printing field, “ Bobbye Tigerman, the Marliyn B. and Calvin B. Gross Curator at LACMA, explains. “The Catena necklace is her most sophisticated design to date, both conceptually and technically. The complex design of interlocking pieces is entirely articulated, a feature made by possible by the 3D printing process, without requiring extensive manual labor and time investments. “

This year, we graced the front page of the Image Section of the LA Times! In a short 3 years, we have grown from a designer niche brand into a prominent fine jewelry brand.
