George Frost is a unsex jewelry line founded in New York City. Co-designed by Lisa Salzer and the creative minds of Marlon Taylor-Wiles and Jon Tyler Sneden, the line infuses the past and modernity to create a timelessly stylish collection.
Unity, loyalty, and peace are the powerful and unmistakable themes of George Frost’s second collection entitled NO GOODS. Embracing the revolutionary sentiments of the 1960’s, NO GOODS draws inspiration from the anti-Vietnam war protests, as well as the civil and women’s rights movements.
Incorporating re-appropriated government currency, such as George Washington’s eye embedded in a brass cuff, as well as hidden Morse code messages on beaded necklaces and bracelets, the collection toys with the notion of watching and being watched, suggesting a subversive statement about how “free” we really are. With several items crafted out of braided horsehair and the George Frost signature harpoon clasp as a nod to Victorian mourning jewelry and handmade trench art, the pieces further emphasize the anti-war attitudes by eluding to the fallen Americans that lost their lives to a cause that many neither understood nor supported.
