"AGMES make cool, sculptural jewellery with responsible practices. Their hoops and stacking rings look best when worn doubled up, and you should mix your metals too. This jewellery will become a staple."

Morgan Solomon: "In starting a new business, we knew we wanted to consider the environmental impact of all our decisions."
Maybe we can start by diving into your backgrounds, the story behind AGMES and when and how you founded the brand?
We started this company 5 years ago, which is so crazy to think. Jewellery has always been such a passion of both of ours. For a long time, I would think up different pieces, and create them in my mind. I never anticipated having my own jewellery line, it was always mostly a passion. I actually studied business in school, and went on to work in buying. One night I had gone out with an old friend of mine who knew about my love of jewelry design, and he asked me why I wasn’t pursuing my dream. He helped me get the courage and take that leap of faith - it was just a day later that I quit my job and decided to pursue this full time. I went back to school to study jewellery design and started working on a jeweler’s bench. At the same time, Jaclyn was taking a break from her job, so I had begun asking her for more and more of her free time.
What is it like working together as sisters?
Honestly, it has been great. We really trust each other, and we understand each other and how the other one works. It is like finishing one another’s sentences.
