What's in front and what's behind? Do I long to create beauty because I'm human or am I human because I want to create beauty? Hard to tell. Seems as difficult to answer as "what is art?". Regardless of the origin of this nagging need, we can probably agree that a world void of our effort to manifest our experiences as "things" would be less empathic.

Perhaps that's why some of us risk so much to make things. We want to be vehicles of communication. We want to remind ourselves and others that we aren't all that different, and that even when we look back down the corridor of time and see the trophies and carcasses of human expression, that our desires haven't changed much. We just want to be known, be discovered, and thus become something more. Not like silly celebrities, but more in the nietzschean Übermensch sense, where building on our collective progress and believing that knowing another and being known can make us better versions of ourselves, people who can learn to love this life. #derrickcruz #loveisrebellion

My name is Derrick Cruz, founder of Betroth, and I believe in the power of symbols. I've been a jewelry designer for over a decade -- always trying to turn wearable things into contemporary archetypes to help us navigate our place in time. I've experienced many successes and failures in that regard, but at every step of the way only my relationship with my life partner has stood the test of all efforts -- even when my ideas edged on madness. A few years ago I began hearing the same story from you. You reached out to me hoping I could put that same conviction into creating symbols that would represent your passion for your relationships. It's been an honor every time. But I realized one thing: there are many out there I can't aesthetically speak for, conscientious people also longing for a meaningful object to signal their journey as a couple. Lucky for you and me, I've met and continue to meet many incredible creatives that are as committed to the power of design as I am. And though the majority of them have zero experience in jewelry, they're masters of their own craft. I staunchly believe they can help tell your modern story -- with my help to make the rings 😉. That's why I created Betroth. It's the culmination of all of my experience and love for good design, fine craftsmanship, storytelling and responsible practices. With Betroth, I intend to empower these amazing contemporary talents with everything I know of jewelry to create rings that will help you reflect on your personal evolution as a result of the love you've shared with another. Cheers! 🍻 -- visit Betroth.me (link in bio) and click on "Designers" to see what's coming.

#loveisrebellion // Let's create a new way of experiencing and forging the ring, free of the artifice and crimes that raise a barrier of irrelevance between our heads and our hearts. Let's strive for a ring that will unite art, craftsmanship, technology and ethics, and which will one day rise on millions of hands as true symbols of modern love. 🔥✊🏽🔥// Terrain by @effixx .
