Pico Design - Andrea Panico

"We're all building something. We create foundations and we build frameworks, layers, and connections in our lives that make us unique. I create jewelry that is a simple counterpoint to our complex lives and provides a foundation to reflect individuality."

Andrea Panico, founder of creative studio Pico Design, is an industrial designer inspired by both the large scale of architecture and the small scale of jewelry. She melds the two together in a collection often referred to as modern heirloom jewelry. The company name, "Pico," short for the Italian word piccolo, celebrates little things for the big impact they have in our lives.

Panico's jewelry is designed with care and intent. Her process combines her training in industrial design with her experience in jewelry making, bringing traditional and modern methods together. Using a combination of hand fabrication and 3-D modeling, Panico creates prototypes in her Montclair, New Jersey, studio. Pieces are made to order using both cast and fabricated elements.

Andrea Panico has a background in architecture and industrial design, and as such, brings a unique perspective to her work. She has held design positions at West Elm, Clodagh Design, and Studios Architecture, among others. Panico earned a Master of Industrial Design degree from Pratt Institute, where she also studied jewelry. She earned her undergraduate degree from Cornell University.
