Inspired by the Bench…silver and gold scrap metal on the bench, that is! With Sterling Silver scrap on Q’s workbench and silver selling for $50 an ounce, it seemed only natural for her to find a way to use the wire fragments.
Q started experimenting with shapes for handmade chains. Earrings followed, and the Original Hyperion Collection was born.
Oscar Wilde said, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” You may see these shapes in your travels, but the original Hyperion started in my studio.
