In 1997 Iris Saar Isaacs started studying fine art and design; first studying Design and Silversmithing in Northern Metropolitan Institute of TAFE, followed by Three Dimensional Studies (Sculpture) at the Victorian College of the Arts. Iris has been making jewellery for 14 years and is the founder of InSync Design, which has exhibited and won numerous awards in Australia, Europe and the United States.
InSync Design’s modular range combines anodised aluminium and black neoprene rubber lariat. The unconventional process of creating these pieces sees materials often aligned with mass manufacturing combined with an organic simplicity to become objects of adornment. The result is a series of beautifully constructed replications of natural forms. The wearer determines how the jewellery is composed on the body, thus becoming a part of the fluid creative process.
