BEJEWELED: CONOR JOSEPH

Designer: Conor Joseph | Conorjoseph.com

What are you listening to right now? Recently, I've been recently listening to a band called Uruguay. They’re a New York based duo who play dark, deep electronic rhythm. Their sound is really unique. They liked my jewelry and reposted an image of it on Instagram and we have been corresponding since then, I would really like to lend them some of my pieces to wear for one of their shows in the future.

What’s one piece of jewelry you never leave home without? I guess it would be all my earrings that I’ve made over the years. I have several ear piercings; so I'm always making new pieces to fill them with, I always sleep in them and never really take them out. One of my best friends is also a jeweler and recently gave me a silver ring she made. I’ve been wearing it every day since she gave it to me, I really love it. 

If you had to choose, would it be silver or gold? I tend to wear silver more than gold but I really like working with gold, especially white gold. 

What’s one thing people would never guess about you? I’m really fascinated with alchemy and anatomy. I like studying about cultures that practice witchcraft within their religion. All these practices always find a connection to each other.

“Priceless” to you means… It means something that is timeless and forever, it could be so personal to you yet it's beyond our general perception of value. It doesn't have to be a desirable object it could be a something as simple as memory or personal experience.
