Vanessa Lianne Jewelry is a study in contrasts: striking and understated, industrial and delicate, timeless and modern. The handmade pieces draw equal inspiration from the primitive grace of the natural world and the innovative aesthetics of contemporary design.
Like a favorite cashmere sweater, the collection exudes both luxury and familiarity. Rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces are made to be layered, inviting the wearer to personalize a look through endless possible combinations. The effect is one of rustic elegance: instead of serving as adornments, pieces become a native extension of the woman who wears them.
Vanessa hand-forges all work in her Brooklyn studio, a palpable craftsmanship that can be seen and felt in every piece. One of her signature processes is an unusual torched-metal technique that produces a rich topographic texture. Using sustainably and ethically sourced metals and diamonds, she creates pieces with an unmistakable heirloom quality—future keepsakes to be worn for a lifetime and beyond.
Vanessa has had a life-long passion for jewelry and always knew it was her calling.
After graduating from University with a BA in Art History and Philosophy she moved to New York City to study jewelry design at The Fashion Institute of Technology. She then went on to hone her skills and work in the fine jewelry industry as a goldsmith until she launched her own collection in 2013
