Datter Industries began in NYC in 2010 as a way for illustrator, Kaye Blegvad, to create narrative jewelry. She has since relocated to two studios, one in London and one in Brooklyn, where all her pieces start out as models, hand-carved in wax, and are then cast and finished individually. Kaye's pieces cover some of the same themes explored in her illustration work—from ritual, the occult, weaponry, animals to talismans. Datter is the Danish word for 'daughter'. "It's part 'data', part 'matter'. It's a little alchemical. At the very least, it's my project to turn drawings and ideas into jewelry," says Kaye.
