Frank Lloyd Wright's March Balloons motif encapsulated by modern concrete jewelry by KONZUK
The design of this concrete necklace was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's abstract drawing for the 1927 monthly, Liberty Magazine. In this cover for the March issue, Wright uses one of his favorite geometric shapes, the circle, to create an assemblage of colorful overlapping balloons.
Karen Konzuk aspires to create jewelry that is regarded as wearable architecture, and objects designed beautifully to last. Through trial and error, Karen persevered to create a line that was unlike anything her peers and mentors were creating. Her diligence resulted in a collection of pieces that reflected the designer’s keen interest in industrial design and architecture. Through a studied use of clean lines and an unwavering commitment to a minimalist aesthetic, Karen has evolved KONZUK into an internationally renowned modern line of jewelry for the contemporary man and woman.
In 2019 the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation invited Karen Konzuk to develop an official collection of jewelry based on Wright's prolific works. The FLW Motif Series of stainless steel and concrete geometric forms interpret the algorithmic geometry and unembellished materials found in Wright's design and architectural projects. Particular influences were drawn from Wright's unpublished 1927, Liberty Magazine cover submissions.
