Philadelphia Jewelry maker Matthew Addonizio’s innovative material-based accessories immediately caught our eyes here at Analog Watch Co. Five years ago, when Addonizio wanted to create a necklace for himself, he transformed some wood to make his first design. After more and more people kept asking him where they could buy his necklaces, he decided to start selling them. While it all started with his wooden necklaces, he now includes other materials such as rolled leather and woven fiber. The pieces are beautifully simple and have a real honesty about them and their construction.
Matthew strives to make sure each one fits his minimalistic style and that the work can speak for itself. While he sometimes begins his work by sketching various ideas, more often he is playing with materials and different forms to organically pull the design from the process. He is constantly developing new pieces and gets inspiration from a variety of fields including photography and architecture You can check out his website at www.matthew-adonizio.com where you can buy his jewelry, or his instagram where you can get a behind the scenes look at the process.
