Mixed media collages with pressed flower petals and magazine clippings. The original collage started as a coping mechanism with the conflicts in Armenia. The original piece was raffled off, and all proceeds went to the Armenia Fund. Now, commissions are welcome and a portion of proceeds will be going to help Armenian families in need. My heart is heavy, but I will continue to make art to bring us together. Vertexx was built up on a simple definition of a dot that connects two lines together. Now it’s far more than just an arbitrary name, it is building connections in the most remarkable ways.
The Heart of Armenia Pendant started as a rough sketch on April 24th 2020... and stayed in my sketchbook for quite some time, every so often I would look back to it, finessing it alil bit more. On September 27th, Armenia was attacked out of left field and a war broke out in the Nagorno- Karabakh region. This pendant was in its early stages. Like many Armenian businesses, plans were set aside as we tried to figure out ways to help our homeland. Deeply saddened by the news of the attacks on the Armenian people and Artsakh, Heart of Armenia came to fruition. Our first go around took close to 40 hours to complete and proceeds were donated to the Armenia Fund & second one to Veterans of Armenia. With raffles and sales from our Eternity Necklace raised a total of $6,600. We will continue to keep supporting our homeland with either product sales or taking our business and providing opportunities to work with people who currently reside in Armenia. Thank you all for your generous contributions.
Almost all of our products are C.N.C. cut - not casted. In plain terms, that means each piece you order is machine cut with precision tools, eliminating defects and ensuring quality. We believe in transparency, strive for excellence, and we do our best to competitively price our products as much as we can.
For a longer wear, minimize contact with water, soap, heavy perfumes, hairsprays, lotions and other liquids during wear. Raw Brass naturally oxidizes depending on the air & body chemistry but brightens up quickly if you rub with lemon + water or apply a layer of ketchup (the acidity helps) then rinse. Polishing with a dishwashing scouring pad also works. It is not irreversibly tarnished, just temporarily oxidized.
Vertexx, INC. was born in LA and we plan to stay in LA.
In an effort to continue supporting the growth of the U.S. economy, we are committed to keeping production in Los Angeles, California. We are a small business and support other local businesses.
Though most of our production is done in-house - from initial design to product photography - some parts of manufacturing are produced through our local industries. It would be substantially more cost-effective to mass produce our products overseas; however, outsourcing production creates more of a carbon footprint, and mass production loses the art of our detailed work. We take pride in the design elements we utilize - inspired from our beloved streets of Los Angeles themselves. Born out of roaming the streets of Los Angeles, each piece created holds a special LA memory in one form or another.
