Impression Pendants use found textures in the physical world as jewelry molds. They are made by taking clay impressions from textures found around the world from historically and culturally significant landmarks and objects. 

Each piece results in a one-of-a-kind connection with its subject. The pendants are 100% analog and hand-crafted, dismissing traditional jewelry-making techniques.

"The Garment Worker" is a permanent sculpture located at 555 Seventh Avenue (Fashion Avenue) in the heart of Manhattan's Garment District. It is an eight foot bronze sculpture created by artist Judith Weller. It is a realistic figure of a garment worker, wearing a yarmulke and seated over a hand-operated sewing machine. The figure is modeled after the artist’s father, who was a machine operator in the NY garment industry. It was created to commemorate Jewish garment workers, the backbone of Jewish life in NY at the turn of the century.

This sculpture was casted at The Modern Art Foundry in Queens, NY. This impression was taken from the maker's stamp.
