During ancient times Europeans wore metal neckpieces and bracelets that were twisted into a rigid ring called a Torc. The word torc means to twist, so Kaminer took inspiration both from the ancient forms and the meaning of the word to design her Torc Jewelry Series.

Each jewelry piece in the series was created with wire that was forged on two sides to create the twisted shape. They were shaped by hammering multiple times to create the final asymmetrical form.
