Designer Q&A Series: Rosanne Pugliese!

This week, in honor of her trunk show on Saturday in Larchmont, we sat down with the wonderfully talented Brooklyn-based Rosanne Pugliese. We are obsessed with her subtle, light-as-a-feather jewelry, hand-made with the richest hammered gold and saturated and unique stones, which is all at once classic, modern, and luxurious. The majority of Rosanne's collection is handmade in 22k gold, in a small artisan workshop in NYC -- even the simple hoops are worked one piece at a time by hand. Rosanne uses classic, elegant proportions. But she keeps a certain earthy rawness by using gentle finishing techniques and unusual gemstones, like aquamarines that look like little chunks of the sky... or nuggets of color that are rough, assymetrical, and utterly sophisticated.
-What is your favorite piece of jewelry? I am fortunate to be able to switch what is the favorite very often!  Have some amazing green tourmaline rectangular "bars" that I am working on, and a bezel set "east/west" ring is my best piece right now.

Meet Goldsmith and Gem-Guru Annie Fensterstock

Annie Fensterstock is a master goldsmith with a distinct style that is difficult to discover elsewhere. Using a style reminiscent of ancient artisans, her particular technique dates back centuries, while her style remains incredibly current and modern. Annie uses delicious and rich candy colored gemstones that sit beautifully amongst her radiant yellow gold and dark and moody oxidized metals. Her work ranges from gorgeous eye-catching ornamented pendants, to simple hammered wedding bands and diamond encrusted engagement rings. Annie has been quoted to say that, through her work, she seeks “to re-imagine and reinterpret the past,” and fuse the ancient world with the vitality of the modern world--and we just love that that. Annie’s bold aesthetic is unlike anything else, her stones deliciously unusual, and her pieces unique and show-stopping.
