Last week in Miami, jewelry maker Maor Cohen and artist Olivia Steele celebrated their recent collaboration, during Art Basel in Miami Beach. Steele, known for her text-driven work in sculpture and neon, created a one-of-a-kind capsule collection for the jewelry brand MAOR.
The suite of pieces debuted at The Webster Tuesday night, including a ring that reads “Always be desired never possessed,” a pin that says “Stay Present,” and a necklace that states “Embrace the mystery.” The sale of the collection benefited the National YoungArts Foundation.
Guests enjoyed champagne while getting a first look at the collection, other pieces by MAOR, and the 2017 edition of Whitewaller Miami, featuring MAOR’s “Saturn” series on the cover. In attendance was Maor Cohen, Olivia Steele, Michael Klug, Laurent Moïsi, Thomas Mondo, Sarah Arison, Carolina Garcia Jayaram, James Goldstein, and more.
