New York city based jewelry company AbraxasRex is the vision of artist Paris Kain. And it’s one unique vision: “The mission is to empower all who wear it beyond the raw and beautiful ascetic that each piece embodies to carry and transfer the history, strength, and energy through multiple levels of consciousness for many generations to come.”
Kain injects “history, strength, and energy” into every piece of jewelry by incorporating materials that he finds all over the world. AbraxasRex is the first fine-jewelry line to use a Platinum Silver Alloy, and the pieces feature artifacts like dinosaur bones and meteor pieces alongside precious stones. The jewelry has graced red carpets alongside the works of famous fashion designers such as Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, and Francisco Costa. Kain, who’s also a part time photographer, painter, and filmmaker and the son of a CIA assassin (father) and painter (mom), draws inspiration from many sources. It shows through AbraxasRex.
