Designer Randi Mates was first exposed to ancient Greek and Roman goldsmithing methods while enrolled at the Jewelry Arts Institute in New York City. Her newly acquired technique and her background as a historian of material culture eventually inspired her jewelry label Aesa, which is the ancient Greek work for fate and destiny. We just love how each piece from her collection, usually casted in bronze and dotted with precious stones, can resemble an old relic or even a futuristic keepsake. So unique!
