Montreal-based jewelry line launched February, 2011. Conceived by photographer and New York University graduate, Montreal native Erin Wahed, and hand crafted by established jeweler Janis Kerman, who happens to be her mother. Inspired by the Bauhaus masters and a variety of mediums including photography, painting, sculpture and industrial design and pairing illusion and aesthetic. Every component is handmade and all finishes are applied by hand, rendering each piece unique. This quality and Old World craftsmanship play an essential role in what sets Bande des Quatres apart.
