Volcano - the inspiration behind the Lava men’s jewelry collection
Volcanoes are a symbol of powerful uncontrollable force. In Roman mythology, Volcano was the name of the god of fire and blacksmith, who was characterized by physical strength and the ability to produce beautiful objects. The duality of its nature inspired the ORSKA men’s collection, as it combines the elements of earth and fire, just as today’s men combine strength with tenderness. This symbolism is reflected in two completely different lines of jewelry - one irregular, cast in silver, and the other, geometric, carved from brass. Their common point is handmade, raw, and industrial character.
Silver necklace with geometric pendant
The necklace from the silver line of the collection resembles lava, softly flowing down volcanic slopes. When solidified, the liquid rock forms porous stones with an irregular structure, which we translated into jewelry forms in the ORSKA Poznań workshop. The necklace was made by hand. The delicate ball chain is reminiscent of military identification tags; it was decorated with two round pendants, shaped and textured to resemble pieces of solidified magma. The heated liquid silver was applied in layers by the jewelers, and then patiently polished. As a result, the seemingly rough and harsh surface is smooth, soft, and looks almost liquid. The pendants have burned irregular holes of different sizes. One of the pendants features a decorative gold-colored stud that resembles a bullet. The necklace is finished with a round ORSKA logo and a lobster claw clasp. The design evokes associations with primal power and strength. The jewelry will work well with both casual and elegant outfits, adding a fierce look to the owner.
How to choose the perfect necklace?
Most men's necklaces are 50 cm long, allowing the pendant to be placed between the top two buttons of the shirt. If you prefer longer necklaces, choose a 55-63 cm long version, so that the pendant sits in the middle of your chest. Men’s fashion is not just about classic white shirts and black suits. Long necklaces are easiest to style with t-shirts, blazers, or tank tops. In autumn and winter they look good with turtlenecks or warm sweaters. Well-chosen jewelry can change the style of the entire outfit, and add character to the overall look. Jewelry from the Lava collection, although dedicated to men, will also work well for women who like minimalist and bold jewelry.
