Burton Metal Depositories mission is to provide the modern man with accessories to quietly distinguish him from the crowd. The materials used are deliberately chosen for their natural aging qualities. As each piece is worn, it develops a character unique to its wearer. As each piece is designed by former architect, she utilises the skills she learnt practicing Architecture to create elegant, minimal pieces, uniting the latest technology with ancient principles of proportion.

‘The Marked Men’ collection stemmed from an exploration into ancient Egyptian beliefs about death and the soul. Each design has developed as an abstraction of a hieroglyph and its relation to the soul’s journey through the afterlife. The etched details wrap around the form so each piece can be worn multiple ways.
