FROM THE ARCHIVES
Originally carved in the 1970's, the Horsefly is back and better than ever...
Alex Streeter began his career by making custom death masks, tarot card necklaces and other mystical talismans at his store in Soho, New York in the early 1970’s. Soon he began to carve jewelry pieces using the ancient art of lost wax casting. Today, each and every piece is still cast locally in the Diamond District of Manhattan, and finished by hand in our studio.
Born to a Welsh mother, from a young age Alex was fascinated by the Ancient Welsh Druids and early paganism. This affinity for the the occult and its intersection with the natural world features heavily in his carvings. A prolific artist, Alex's complete collection contains over 1,000 unique carvings as well as various large-scale sculptures.
Alex Streeter is most known for his signature piece - the Angel Heart Ring. Originally worn by Robert DeNiro in the 1987 thriller “Angel Heart”, the ring has since garnered a cult following around the world. Today Alex runs the company with the help of his daughter, Lily Streeter, who recently began adding her own designs to the collection.
