Simplistic Beauty: Prints and Jewelry by Molly McGrath

December 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

What’s not to love about these simple but strikingly beautiful designs by molly m designs? I love the timelessness of the black-white-tan color scheme. I can just as easily imagine McGrath’s prints in a mid-century home as in a modern home of today.

The story behind the work is also an interesting one- McGrath did not start out as a designer but trained as an architect and was inspired to use an architectural tool, the laser cutter, to create jewelry. Molly’s designs are heavily influenced by architectural elements such as geometry, form, light and pattern.

Her prints (left and below left) were later to come and are made of multiple layers of cut-out paper and bamboo veneer. I’m currently daydreaming about framing two or three and hanging them in a series…

Prints start at $16 for a 4 x 6″ print and go up to $64 for 16 x 20″. The jewelry shown runs from $36 to $46. Thanks to for me, for you for sharing Molly’s work.
