from New York City,
established in 2016
Created by sisters Morgan and Jaclyn Solomon, AGMES is inspired by urban landscapes, architecture and modern art. The sisters both borrow from their experience in the fashion industry: Morgan began as a buyer for a private label and Jaclyn, now a consultant for the label Khaite, studied fashion design at Parsons and designed knitwear at Proenza Schouler for four years. Their feminine, sculptural pieces are handmade locally in New York from precious metals, and are created with a hybrid of modern technology and traditional jewelry-making processes. Morgan (who began creating jewelry in her youth), begins the process by sketching her pieces, creates 3D molds, and finally, artisan jewelers — all independent, local artists — manipulate and refine the pieces by hand to create truly crafted, timeless pieces.
