My passion for jewelry making started in the midst of a career in the fashion world. I was greatly influenced while designing for Calvin Klein, honing my eye for choosing luxurious, sensuous materials and using them in clean, modern and sculptural forms.
While still inspired by the modern design movement, the best ideas come from spending time at the workbench combining the metal and gems until I find that balance of lightness and fluidity that I want the jewelry to convey.
The jewelry is made in our small Brooklyn workshop where each piece is fabricated and finished by hand. Attention is given to gentle finishing techniques, carefully chosen gemstones and responsibly sourced materials. — rp
