McTega is the brainchild of two mad scientists . . . honestly. After Sarah McLellan and Kristina Ortega studied science, pre-med and microbiology in college, their paths eventually crossed interning for Rodarte in 2007. “We found these mirrored plexiglass pieces shopping in the garment district, and Sarah said, ‘Oh, these look like carbon link structures!’ We went from there, casting them in plastic to make our first necklace ever.”
So beautiful and very unique necklaces. Love them all.

Just fantastic, I’m not much of a jewelry kinda guy but these are awesome. Super organic feel probably…gems and other semi-precious without having to be commercially extracted. Quite cool indeed!
