TAP by Todd Pownell

The jewelry designs behind Todd Pownell are the pique of craftsmanship and creativity—a unified result of the talents and experiences of Todd Pownell, Debra Rosen, and their small team working out of Cleveland, Ohio. Todd Pownell’s root aesthetic is in combination romantic, sophisticated, and a free celebration of natural elements. The routinely elegant designs are made better by the prioritization of moral practices. As responsible jewelers, they exercise a social and environmental responsibility by exclusively using ethically-mined stones and metals and always maintaining a healthy work environment.

Todd’s signature design is the “upside-down,” or reverse set diamond. This method reveals an alternative way the diamond can capture and reflect light at unexpected, oblique angles. The materiality of light and dark is a key concept in the designs, as Todd experiments with the relationship between the two. Another key element in the work is the rugged versus the refined; a juxtaposition that creates an inherent balance within a piece.
