About Gemma

I have been surrounded with art and creativity all my life - both my parents were professional artists in New York City. I pursued a career in fashion design while living in New York and continued my involvement after moving to Italy. I became increasingly more interested in art while taking painting and sculpture classes at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and began painting seriously about 10 years ago. The jewelry design is a natural continuation of this creativity. Jewelry design is an art, and I approach each piece as if it were a painting using color as my primary inspiration. Color also reflects emotions, and I believe that it can actually effect emotions. I have created a unique collection of jewelry in semi-precious stones and silver utilizing gems and crystals. The colors and beauty that the stones themselves possess reflect specific energy and healing properties. Gems and minerals have long been known for their healing and beneficial effects and I like to create with those specific aims in mind. Gemstones and crystals emit specific vibrations, according to the mineral content, and also according to their color. We see color because of its vibration. All is matter of vibration, and scientists have long known this to be true. I love to explore the many possibilities that these energies and colors can offer combining the elements of design with the esoteric and energetic properties of the stones themselves. My collection sold for ten years in our jewelery store in the suburbs of Rome. It is currently sold online through my website and my Etsy Shop. I am continually creating new additions to my jewelery collection.
