RUNE began as an exploration into the architectural possibilities in jewelry, centering around the idea of the artifact. With roots in architecture and sculpture, the jewelry takes cues from everyday geometry, finding inspiration from our built environment and the raw industrial materials around us. From idea to conception, each piece is carefully crafted; one material informing the other of its place, fitting perfectly together. The artifact presents itself intertwined with its counterparts, and within each necklace, the understanding of a new material expression arises.
We are two architects, and one ceramic artist - Sharon Leung / Jane Kate Wong / Kristen Lim-Tung. RUNE was originally formed in Toronto - with soon to be bases in Copenhagen and New York.
