Jeweler and metal artist Janine DeCresenzo creates wearable art that is intricate and free-flowing, with rhythmic repetition of pattern. Her inspiration comes from many sources: natural forms, geometric shapes, unusual stones, and childhood memories.
Playful and sculptural, her necklaces and bracelets incorporate rare natural materials such as piano key ivory, fossils, and coral. The artist uses surface patterns and textures to complement and enhance the basic forms of her designs, and chooses each clasp and mechanism carefully. DeCresenzo designs her jewelry to age with the wearer, gradually picking up patterns from her life. She crafts each piece not only to be comfortable, but also to make a statement.
