After a distinguished career in Hollywood – where he served as the lead sculptor on such films as Batman Forever, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Big Fish – Tomas Wittelsbach took his technical understanding of using form, motion, and tension to tell a story and began to create on a much smaller scale.
In 2005, he launched his own line of jewelry, the House of Wittelsbach. Hinged largely on traditional European iconography and translated with crypt-like skeletons resurrected from a dusty underworld, the House of Wittelsbach reimagined what fine jewelry could look like.
Today, Tomas has teamed up with Jim Tuttle of Green Lake Jewelry Works to create a one-of-a-kind collection called Ink Metal. Tomas personally designs each piece in the exquisite line of ornately detailed jewelry – all reflective of his dark, countercultural aesthetic.
