elasticmodulus by Brian Houghton

I had the opportunity to do a mini-interview with one of my new favorite emerging designers through Etsy, Brian Houghton. His jewelry is masculine, raw, overall perfection. He's 27 and is new to making jewelry, since he's only been making jewelry since October this year.

Favorite designers?
i dont really have any favorite designers, i like to sort of design myself and take different snippets from all over the place...

Favorite Etsy shops?



Where do you get your inspiration?
my inspiration is sort of the same realm as the above statement, meaning i like to take bits and pieces from different time periods and not necessarily confined to civilized time periods. new ideas are sprouting all the time, i get a lot of inspiration from, old jewelry, antiques, curiosities, post apocalyptic movies, art etc etc

What are your future goals in jewelry?
my goals in my jewelry making is to first and foremost not take myself to seriously and have fun with what i am doing, i would like to perfect certain techniques with wire wrapping, fluidity etc etc. i am happy to know that people do enjoy my art and jewelry.....i guess they are one in the same!!

What type of person do you see wearing your jewelry? 
actually i have sold jewelry to a few different style types, goth, old school punk, alternative types etc. so all types i guess, people who i thought would never care really 
like it....a bit surprising to be honest.
