The Medley Institute
THE MEDLEY INSTITUTE
Founded in 2010 by Jana Patz, The Medley Institute has been a place of constant contemplation over the concept and meaning of fine jewellery while creating wearable, minimalistic objects from precious materials.
Inspired by her background as a fashion designer, every outline is rooted in an anatomical study, moulded from the body and stripped down to its essential and timeless elements. In constant restraint the framework of the designs disregards seasonal trends. Through process of development and the subsequent handcrafted finish each chain and each bracelet is a unique piece.
The numbers of the different editions are the roman numerals in chronological order, noting a timeline of when each edition was added.
Twice a year, the Medley Institute presents new collections at the Paris fashion week:
as valuabe as wearable.
PRODUCTION / MATERIAL
Each piece of jewelry is manufactured in Pforzheim, Germany,
a small town internationally renowned for its enduring traditions in goldsmithing, jewelry and watchmaking. Every object is handmade to ensure the best possible quality for our products and customers.
Each piece is made out of 925 Sterling Silver – polished, plated and treated for tarnish in its final form to guarantee a long lasting shine. Our silver pieces receive extra silver plating – for an long life period. Our gold items are plated with 6-7μ in 18k gold.
Through process and development of handcrafting every piece of jewelry, our products become unique and dynamic accessories while still significant in its own right as a decorative object in any context.
Acting independently of momentary trends allows us to deliver strong forms in design, created from precious materials with every collection co-existing in unity. Our items are numbered by edition in roman numerals, noting the timeline of our evolvement.
