Aeri Go is a jewelry designer and artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work explores soft, organic shapes and sculptural pieces that complement the natural forms of the human body. Her pieces are characterized by their elegant lines and subtle yet bold volumes that are characteristic of Korean art and craft.
It's her goal to inspire a conversation about how nature can provide a space to connect with our emotions and be present in our thoughts. She conveys this narrative through the natural motifs in her work.
Every piece of Aeri Go is inspired by nature.
It is designed from the senses we feel when we interact with nature by seeing, smelling, touching, hearing and tasting.
These feelings are visualized on paper, sculpted in wax, then casted using an ancient technique called lost wax casting with recycled metal.
Aeri Go is handcrafted with love and packaged with care in NYC with the help of local jewelers and partners.
Here are the steps of making Aeri Go.
Lost Wax Cast
coating it with plaster mold, heating until the wax melts and runs out of the mold,
and then pouring metal into the vacant mold.
Cleaning and Polishing
The process of making jewelry is different for each piece.
It takes patience to go through different stages of production to get to the final, polished look of the piece.
We are all part of nature so taking care of nature is taking care of ourselves. It’s for every living thing on Earth.
Aeri Go is committed to conducting all operations in the most socially and environmentally responsible way possible.
We use recycled, ethically sourced metals and mainly use lab-grown diamonds or heirloom stones to avoid environmental impact from mining.
For mined stones, we work with trusted partners to meet ethical standards for sourcing gemstones and diamonds and to follow labor practices.
