The Tongue-in-Cheek Collection is a true extension of my personality. When I set about designing most of these pieces it came more from a desire to create jewelry that I wanted to wear, and couldn’t find anywhere else. All of my hobbies and passions started to converge into a series of rings, necklaces and bracelets that we.re straight up Michael Raymond. From my skateboarding days to playing in a band to even my mustache that I managed to sport for 10 mind-blowing years it all found its way here. There’s a playfulness to this collection that personifies the way I like to look at life. Life should be fun and interesting, but you can also get a laugh at all it when you have the mentality to not give a damn, and do it your way with a big shit-eating grin on your face.
