Natalie Frigo

"I create unique, heirloom jewelry that celebrates the extraordinary beauty in everyone."

Natalie Frigo's inspiration ranges from early metallurgy and textile design to modern architecture, resulting in a collection that is contemporary and timeless. Frigo is moved by the evidence of the craftsperson's hand in ancient jewelry and objects, and she incorporates that aesthetic into her own work.

Frigo approaches all of her pieces as little sculptures, carving each design by hand in wax. Using the lost wax method, her work is then cast in 100 percent recycled metals and married with personally selected, conflict-free gemstones. The artist is passionate about promoting ethical jewelry design on a local and global scale. All of her jewelry is made entirely in New York City.

Natalie Frigo received her MFA in fiber and material studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she was awarded a graduation merit fellowship. She has also studied wax carving and metalworking, but is primarily self taught in the discipline of jewelry design.
