From a basic pendant with a removable ring, to cuff-links, and tri-spinners, our first designs covered many different jewellery types to experiment with what was possible.
Dylan Puddu brought the concept of a Gearing to Jeff de Boer and Dave Sangra. Together they worked to develop it and get it manufactured. Dylan is no longer with Armét, and we wish him luck.
With age comes refinement. Edward Jaworenko joined the Armét team and working with Jeff de Boer, a system of design was born.
What you see here are the first examples of jewellery utilizing the system we created. No longer was it about the Gearing. Armét's focus moved to designing a system that would allow you to design the jewellery that you want.
The gears are turning
Testing the Water
After adding a multitude of new anodized gears, new plate designs, and more inventive uses of the system we designed, we were ready to move to market.
Throughout the year we also embarked on an interesting journey of 365 Days of Design. These went out through our Instagram and Facebook. By the end it was clear we had barely scratched the surface for what designs are possible.
In 2018 we got our jewellery into our first two galleries: The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, AB, and Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, AB. These two connections are great, and have helped to pave the way for relationships with future stockists!
Coming to market
With a Bang
So far in 2019 we have brought on a new designer, expanded the system we have, and developed many new kinds of jewellery! (Soon to come to the website, don't worry)
Calgary Stampede 2019 will be our first, big push to market our jewellery. After more than a year of preparation, we look forward to seeing how it will be received.
Soon, we will be releasing earrings on our Etsy store and website, as well as an expansion to our system overall!
We are developing an app that will allow you to design your own jewellery, then purchase what you've designed. For now, we have this website, which has been made to be quite versatile... but it doesn't have everything.
