Johnathan Cardillo is an accessories collection of unisex pieces with an edgy, yet sophisticated vibe. It's unique and ambiguous. It's open to interpretation.
Born from personal heartbreak, the spike collection was designed to represent a small dagger that is worn close to your heart to protect it.
Johnathan Cardillo was born and raised in Southern California. His father was a Police Officer and his mother worked at his school to offset the cost of tuition for private school. For much of his childhood he was raised in a really strict religion in which wearing jewelry was considered to be a sin. As an act of rebellion, he began using his father's tools to convert keychains into rings that he would wear when his parents weren't around.
Little did he know that this seemingly small act of defiance would lead to a lifelong passion.
