“I believe that if medieval and Renaissance people revered jewelry as an art form, then modern society should as well.” - Gresham

Color irrevocably enveloped all of Italian Renaissance art and craft. From stained glass windows and tempura paintings to lavish fabrics and royal ornaments bejeweled with exotic gemstones, color was a key factor in all aspects of design. Our Mini Gemma earrings by Gresham embody this idea of color as a primary means of expression and beauty.

I’ve been stringing beads together ever since I was a young girl. I like to say I grew up making friendship bracelets just like every other little girl, except I never stopped. Ever since I can remember I’ve been interested in jewelry. Growing up I constantly took jewelry classes learning how to string, knot, wire wrap, solder, melt and design. I held my first trunk show in the sixth grade with 40 necklaces I made by hand and sold out! I continued creating and selling throughout my adolescent years and furthered my interest throughout college. I’ve always been drawn to the Italian Renaissance so I focused my collegiate studies on the art history of jewelry design and craft in that period. During this time I wrote my senior thesis titled, “Technical and Stylistic Changes in Jewelry from the Time of Theophilus to the Time of Cellini” which explores the significance of jewelry design during the Renaissance.
