Jason Ross owns Artemas Quibble, located in Brooklyn, NY, and they design jewelry and accessories. Jason adds a major twist to his creations: he salvages old materials and turns them into tools to create his amazing designs. When he needed a partner to create custom hand stamps from old metal files and a deconstructed pickax, he turned to Durable Technologies.
In collaboration with LDV, by Zevs, Jason is producing all of the jewelry, belts and bags for Zev’s show at the castle Chateau de Vincennes this summer in France and wanted Durable Technologies to engrave some custom steel hand stamps using his client supplied material that looked like they were from the 16th Century.
"Durable Technologies really cared about our design process and embraced the challenge of taking odd-shaped, old metals and turning them into some really amazing custom hand stamps. Most companies do not want to work with artists but they have a real "how can we help you?" attitude. Durable Technologies does a great job in a reasonable amount of time for a great price. They really understand low-volume production and custom engineering," says Mr. Ross.

Artemas Quibble also develops leather jewelry and accessories for Donna Karan International and Urban Zen.
