Hopson Kinetic Jewelry founders, husband and wife team Ben and Emma Hopson, have unveiled their first collection of their kinetic accessories. Aptly called "Scissor," the pieces are as riveting to watch as to wear. Composed of tiny moving parts that glide together in effortless unison, HKJ's collection of rings, necklaces and bracelets are as remarkable as the delicate innards of an antique clock.
Thin silver bands expand and collapse, held together by tiny golden rivets, changing shape dependent on the mood and styling of the wearer. Situated on narrow chains, the jewelry is the perfect marriage of form and function: utterly delicate and mechanically impeccable. The same, of course, could be said of industrial designer Ben Hopson and his photographer and jewelry aficionado wife, Emma. While Ben's design and mechanical know-how inspired kinetics it was Emma's appreciation for bling that provided the pair with their medium.
