Lately you’ve been overcome with demotion.
First, your job. Then your Facebook status (enter broken heart symbol). Then news that your purebred is a bastard.
Instead of cursing, get your paws on Demotionart.
Local artist and SMU alum Ludwig Schwarz is behind the big-ticket baubles, which are unmistakably glam but totally junky, too. Or as he puts it, a beaten-down mess with some diamonds.
Confused? Think hammered rings with thick globs of 14-karat gold (yellow and white) and random diamonds smushed here and there. Or necklaces crafted from rescued street metal, strands of leather, and a single chunk of ice.
Each unusual piece is made by hand and signed by Schwarz. So they’re truly works of art.
Or what we like to call diamonds in the rough.
Available by phone order (972-977-3180). To see styles, go to demotionart.com.
