Elizabeth Berdann draws inspiration for her innovative jewelry designs from the aesthetics of late-19th century art and fashion. She appreciates the complex symbolism of Victorian mourning jewelry, the intricacies of the Gothic Revival, and the expressive lines of Art Nouveau. Her work blends these historical influences with cutting-edge technology to create jewelry that nods to the past, exists in the present, and will last long into the future.
Her jewelry designs are individually printed with state of the art 3D printers, in a process that can take up to 24 hours to complete. Each item is printed in one piece, including the chain, then meticulously hand finished and hand polished. The result is a revolutionary, beautiful and high-quality object to wear and cherish.
New York artist Elizabeth Berdann comes to the world of jewelry design by way of a successful decades-long painting career, exhibiting in premiere galleries and museums throughout the US, Europe and Asia. Specializing in portrait miniatures, Berdann puts a modern face on a traditional 18th- and 19th-century art form by emphasizing the emotional and physical beauty of her subjects.
