Gemma Insinna's Profile

About

I have been surrounded with art and creativity all my life - both my parents were professional artists in New York City.
( see their work: http://gemmainsinna.net )
I pursued a career in fashion design while living in New York and continued my involvement after moving to Italy.
My interest in Vintage started along with my fashion career, I loved the details, fabrics and handwork found on antique laces, clothing and accessories.

Gemma's Gems, Jewelry Design
I also design jewelry which 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.
I have created a one of a kind collection of jewelry in semi- precious stones and silver. 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.
Gems and minerals have long been known for their healing and beneficial effects and I like to create with those specific aims in mind.
