Art and Industry


Art meets industry in these necklaces designed by newcomer, Marla Aaron.
A communications executive by day, jewelry designer by night, Marla mixes industrial or found objects with semiprecious stones to create a range of mix and match necklaces, that are truly one of a kind.

Inspired by her grandmothers’ mutual, yet very different love of jewelry, Marla has merged these diverse influences in her work.

The necklaces, which start with a sterling silver lock, (cast from an industrial lock) allow the wearer to personalize their piece with chains, stones or pearls that can be worn long, or wrapped as chokers and bracelets. Prices range from $150 for the lock, to as much as $1500, depending on the materials.

Currently, Marla is evolving the collection to include some gold items, as well as bringing her locket designs to market. She is also working on a line of men’s cufflinks that combine resin and stones and stay true to her industrial sensibilities.   IMG_9201

Marla Aaron’s collection is available at Plum on Ludlow Street in New York City, or directly through the designer at:
