Jacqueline Gikow's Profile

About

At JacquelineJewelry, I am the owner and designer and do every other task as well! I'm fortunate to be able to spend a lot of time designing my jewelry and home decor accessories and am honored to share my work with you all.

I live in New York City; one of the most vibrant urban areas of the world. New York is not totally the big faceless city that outsiders think of it. It's made up of small neighborhoods and you get to know your neighbors just like in a small town. I'm always amazed when I run into someone I know on the street, but it re-affirms the small town nature of the colossal city I call home.

Stones and beads with bold colors inspire me, and I’m always thrilled to discover a new or unusual color palette. Jewelry is the perfect accessory; the right piece can transform an ordinary outfit into something sp…

I live in New York City; one of the most vibrant urban areas of the world. New York is not totally the big faceless city that outsiders think of it. It's made up of small neighborhoods and you get to know your neighbors just like in a small town. I'm always amazed when I run into someone I know on the street, but it re-affirms the small town nature of the colossal city I call home.

Stones and beads with bold colors inspire me, and I’m always thrilled to discover a new or unusual color palette. Jewelry is the perfect accessory; the right piece can transform an ordinary outfit into something spectacular. I create jewelry and home decor accessories that are accessible to both casual crafts enthusiasts and serious collectors.

The forms and materials I use will appeal to people on many different levels. Treating each piece of jewelry as an individual work of wearable art, I create and sell timeless art meant for day into evening wear. With my home decor accessories, I am presenting products meant to enhance your environment

In the past I have had careers in pottery, graphic design and industrial design with a sidetrack into computer programming early on in my work history. Ever since I can remember, art in some shape or form has been my passion. I am a graduate of The College of Ceramics at SUNY with a BFA in sculpture and art history, an MFA in Arizona State University in environmental design, and an MID in industrial design from Pratt Institute. A perpetual student, I am self-taught in jewelry with a solid backing as a professional designer. I have also written and had published two books: Graphic Illustration in Black and White and Polymer Clay; Creating Functional and Decorative Objects.
