On the grid

There’s more than meets the eye behind the jewelry by AMinimal Studio. At first glance, the map necklaces look like delicate forms found in nature. Take a closer look and the urban grid at the heart of your favorite city will reveal itself. Combining their passion for travel and their backgrounds in urban and industrial design, the founders of AMinimal, John and Lana Briscella acid etch each necklace from stainless steel in their Brooklyn, NY studio. The result is an intricate, yet minimalist, and lightweight, yet strong way to pay homage to cities all over the map.

    I live in California and my daughter moved to NYC a few years ago. Last Christmas she gave me one of your necklaces (the NYC Central Park) and it's one of my favorite pieces. Not only is it beautiful, but I can feel like I am there with her when I wear it. Thanks for the warm fuzzies I have when I wear it!

    What an excellent, simple, elegant idea! I was all set to order until I noticed that you over looked Cincinnati (MSA population 2.1 million), even though you included similarly sized Portland (MSA population 2.3 million), along with smaller cities like Indianapolis and Austin (MSA population 1.9million each), and much smaller New Orleans (MSA population 1.2million). Sorry for all the statistics, but I'm trying to prevent city size from being an excuse.

    If you do cities to order, I would like to have one done for Dunedin New Zealand, in pendent and earrings. If Dunedin is not possible, Christchurch New Zealand is my second choice.

    I want to make a pair of earring for my girlfriend, Washington DC and Dunedin NZ.

    @Donald Hi Donald, that's a great way to personalize a gift. Currently we don't have any NZ cities in production, but in the future we hope to make more cities available. We will keep Dunedin in mind, please check back in the future!

    Is it possible to show the piece that corresponds to the chosen city? I think I may have a vision problem- a couple of designs could be my ( lol).

    Hi Joyce,

    The images we have don't name the specific city next to it (a good to know for us next time) but if you are interested in a specific city that we're selling, I am happy to email you an image. Let me know if that's something you're interested in.
