Each Concrete Polish design is individually handcrafted in Angela’s studio, and produced on Philadelphia’s historic Jewelers’ Row with close attention to environmental concerns. Though Angela aspires to introduce Concrete Polish to women across the nation, her love and dedication will ensure that each new piece remains relevant and timeless.
