TAP is a fusion of expertises from husband-wife duo, Todd Pownell and Debra Rosen. Todd’s classical smithing complements Debra’s background in European atelier practices and fine art traditions. Together they have developed a signature aesthetic. Gold, oxidized silver, and faceted diamond are all combined in new and interesting ways to create a dynamic that is both rugged and refined.
Of most interest is their hallmark use of the inverted diamond. These stones purposefully create oblique angles that maximize light refraction within the piece. Set in hammered metals, the diamonds create a spectacular visual and tactile experience.
