Nature served as a source of inspiration for creative souls meddling in all sorts of different art forms. Metalsmiths exploring this subject through their art aren’t easy to find, but Helen & Tavo of Ritual Remains fall into that category, and they’ll knock you off your feet with their spectacular, nature-inspired jewelry.
Helen and Tavo are currently based in California, and they were both self-taught and prolific creatives before deciding to join forces and form Ritual Remains. They founded their brand in 2016, with a shared vision to create wearable art that mirrors the beauty of the natural world.
On their official website, Helen and Tavo describe Ritual Remains as “the creative joining born out of a long-term friendship and mutual love for the outdoors, with a passionate drive to replicate nature into metal form.”
Over the course of the past six years, they crafted a wide range of jewelry, including rings, necklaces, earrings, and their signature pendants. They mostly work with metal to keep their prices affordable, but they’re no strangers to experimenting with silver and gold.
As for the subjects they explore in their work, most of their jewelry features pines and forested landscapes. Pine pendants and earrings are Ritual Remains’ signature products, and they make for a great gift for nature lovers in your life.
