7 Easy Pieces: Seth Damm’s Amazing Handmade Jewelry



Seven Easy Pieces from Seth Damm: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Seth Damm is operating on a frequency of creative energy that few of us have seen. Who else can turn yards of rope into colorful handmade statement pieces that defy categorization? They’er one part tribal, but that tribe might just be from a future where style matters more than trends and color is the language de choix. So yes, I’m saying Seth is a time traveller, sent here from the future to show us the path to a fashionable tomorrow. (I really need to recheck this herbal tea I brought back from Portland).

I’ve been reading a lot of the interviews that have featured Seth and his work, discovering some amazing details. Like the fact that Solange, that’s right that Solange, carries his work in her Exodus Goods shop. His work is finding it’s place on the neck of other notables, but Seth isn’t waiting around to be discovered. He is popping up in places like Adorn Milk, the latest handmade jewelry endeavor from the editors of Design Milk.

Of course, you can also see Seth’s Neon Zinn pieces in The Emporium, but I also wanted you to take a closer look at the pieces together. As a whole collection, you get what is probably a partial grasp of the sheer creativity in Seth’s creations. But these are not the work of someone who just wants you to observe them; they are meant to be touched. As he said in this interview in Gray Magazine, “They’re not overly precious. I’m asking people to consider this as a higher level of art, but if you look closer, you’ll see that my canvas is still just a humble piece of rope”.
