Think outside the box when venturing into the world of Seth Papac jewelry! The majority of his designs are so unique that the word “jewelry” takes on an entirely new meaning.
“I am not interested in making slight variations of the same thing. The only design characteristic of my work which is standard is its relationship to the body. Through scale, my work consistently challenges the body, moving beyond the preciousness associated with jewelry and focusing on its efficacious and revelatory potential.” ~ Seth Papac
