People ask me why I love accessories and jewelry and the truth is that I am fascinated by the process that artists go through to make art. There’s something magical that happens when you see someone’s ideas take shape and come to life. I created Circle and Square to share these moments. Here, you can travel, discover and fall in love with that soulmate accessory you feel but can’t describe until you see it. We bring you the extraordinary work of rising star jewelry and handbag artists from all over the world to provide those of you who are beauty seekers and fiercely creatives accessories that express your independent style and the beauty within you.
The name Circle and Square came from nature and from the Cercle et Carré movement. All form in life and in nature, is either a circle or a square. The Cercle et Carré movement defined space using line and thus a modernist movement was begun in Paris in 1930 with the artists Joaquin Torrés-Garcia and Michel Seuphor. We believe their defiance of the rigid rules of the Royal Academy and courage to dream of a new way of art reflects the same spirit at the heart of all of our designers. We know that like these artists, you are not afraid to color outside the lines with how you dress and accessorize.
The Circle and Square store began when I first moved to California and began a journey to redefine myself. I began to meet amazing artists and I felt a passion to showcase their work. In the process of looking for an art space, Circle and Square 1.0, the Brick-and-Mortar version was born and lasted for 6 years as a place for jewelry designers, artists and writers to meet, enjoy, and share ideas. A desire grew for a way for people all over the world to discover these talented people. Circle and Square 2.0, the eCommerce version was born. We currently offer a mix of jewelry, handbags, and sunglasses that range in attitude from eclectic to modern, to classic and elegant with a twist with the dream of continuing to expand our range and variety of artist. We are always looking for rising-stars to add to our gallery and we welcome your input and suggestions. We want to become an international destination people to share their love of craftsmanship, art and innovation. It’s a virtual dream come true!
