We are now thrilled to share our new limited edition Aluminum Collection. When first daydreaming of a new limited edition series, we challenged ourselves to create a body of work large in scale but also light weight. The sculptural and airy bracelets and collar necklace highlight our handcraft as well as our exploration of new materials and processes.
We modeled the pieces here in our Philadelphia Studio through hand-carving foam. We then collaborated with a local foundry to make sand molds for the aluminum casting.

Aside from the lightness of aluminum, our commitment to using only sustainable, ethically sourced materials, attracted us to the material. According to the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative, "Aluminum can be infinitely recyclable. 75 percent of all aluminum ever produced is still in use, with no loss in quality. Recycling aluminum uses only 5 percent of the energy and produces only 5 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions of the average primary production rate."
How we gather and source materials while retaining Bario Neal's signature style can be found in every step of the fabricating process. To view the collection as a whole, visit our Limited Editions page.
