Established and renowned art dealer Avery Andon has collaborated with hip-hop legend and WuTang Clan founding member Ghostface Killah, along with the world-renowned jeweler Jason Arasheben, of Beverly Hills Minted Jewelry. This established team has joined forces to curate a minted NFT for the new art NFT platform and marketplace, ArtGrails.
Melting down Ghostface Killah’s Golden Eagle Bracelet, the 24k solid gold bracelet was transformed into a large one-pound gold coin that was minted as an NFT. The “Golden Eagle Bracelet” was made by jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills. Jason curates’ pieces for his clients that range from LeBron James, Drake, Mariah Carey, J-Lo and so many more phenomenal stars.
On November 30th the reimagined coin and an NFT video of the original form being liquefied and minted will be available as one exclusive set on the ArtGrails platform. This means that the piece will in the end only be purchasable by one buyer. ArtGrails is holding an invite-only VIP viewing event, art show and kick-off party on November 30th to celebrate the beginning of Art Basel 2021. The exclusive set of events will be held in the design distract of Miami. ArtGrails will not be posting content of the exclusive “minting event” video, so the auction winner will have the decision to make the video public or not.
The iconic 24k Golden Eagle Bracelet exemplifies an emblem in hip-hop history, and with the minting of the piece, now someone else will be able to own such a legendary piece of hip-hop history. The coin that is up for grabs will come with an NFT video that showcases Ghostface and Jason of Beverly Hills melting the bracelet into coin form. The video serves as a “tokenized physical asset that will accompany the minting of the video taken of the transformative goldsmithery into an NFT.”
Jason of Beverly Hills has continued to heavily influence and impact hip-hop history through the collaboration of this piece. While breaking down an emblem of hip-hop history, he also creates a new, reformed piece of that history. His work merges the physical and digital world in a way that has never been seen before. Avery Andon had the brilliant idea of the collaboration between Ghostface Killah and Jason of Beverly Hills for this creation. Andon leads ArtGrails upcoming NFT drops that highlight a wide range of renowned and influential buyers.
Andon comments on the event, stating, “this auction features some of the most monumental custom NFTs ever created, which required a platform that provides a truly custom experience for delivering high-end art. With NFTs en route to becoming an industry standard, ArtGrails pushes the industry forward, demonstrating that the future of fine art and collectibles goes beyond paper certificates of authenticity; therefore raising the standard for art buyers, owners, and dealers.”
