How and when did you start your accessory brand?
Our story began completely unintentionally. Many times I and my partner observed how few fashion accessories are available for men. Furthermore, most that are available are either half-baked, not socially acceptable, or not polished to perfection. We jokingly discussed how wearing something intimate that is hidden from the eyes but very much has a big presence could elevate someone's everyday routine. We wanted something special, intimate, exquisite, and extremely personal.
Intimate jewelry suit our needs perfectly, and ideas for our very own line of intimate jewelry slowly started forming. We soon realized that beautiful jewelry can also have a very useful function; it can increase performance and honestly just looks simply outstanding! We decided to take a jump into the unknown and start our own business.

How would you describe your design/product concept?
Main goals were: beautiful design, all-day-long comfort, innovative materials and special inlay designs. The concept started with 3D printing of many different sizes and shapes before finding the optimal curvature for great comfort. After perfecting the shape, we did not want to cut any corners with design or materials.
We would love to hear about your studio/making time and how you connect with your clients.
We connect with our clients via social media and web forums. Never did we imagine there are so many websites and such large communities that are supportive, positive, and open-minded. It is so great to meet new people and be in that positive aura.
What's the proudest moment? What makes you a happy business owner?
The proudest moment is when I receive positive feedback from customers. To hear how satisfied they are and how much more confident they are during the day. Even though it is only a piece of jewelry, for some it is much more than that, and that is so nice to hear.

Which of your services or products is your favourite? Can you tell us the story behind it?
My favourite product is Zeus. I do not know what exactly it is about this ring, but the hammered surface that is then brushed and electroplated reflects the light in a way that really caught my eye. The fact the ring is from one big solid piece of tungsten carbide also adds to this effect - when you first pick it up, you are simply surprised by how heavy it is. The gold colour is the icing on the cake. It just adds this feeling of luxury that only gold can bring.
What are your future plans? Are there any exciting projects underway? Tell us about it!
I am planning to introduce a completely new product category that does not exist in the market at all. The faster my business grows, the sooner I will be able to come to market.
