Randi Mates is the designer behind Aesa jewelry. Trained as a historian and a classical goldsmith, Mates established the company in 2007 and is based in New York City.
Aesa’s ouevre harkens to a grand tradition of craft in which handwork is revered. At the same time, Mates’ references are always varied and unconventional; the way she melds them is surprising, innovative and seamless.
Each a small work of art, Mates’ designs are both poetic and sympathetic, making them covetable, sophisticated and intimate.
