Jewelry as Art – Saturday November 30th, 12 to 8pm

fotofoto Gallery presents a one day special event jewelry sale by Monica Maestrelli. Born and raised in Florence, Italy, her professional career as a designer began inside the well-known Superstudio, an avant-garde architecture and design studio as an assistant to a group of five architects, who were exploring with experimental concepts in radical architecture. There she soon developed her interest in minimalism and organic forms. She later used this experience in her interior design, luxury accessories and jewelry designing.

In 1983 she started working as a gift designer for GUCCI, designing and supervising in the development of prototypes. Between1994 to 2004 she worked with the art director Tom Ford as senior designer for the new Gucci Home & Jewelry Collection. With the new art director, Frida Giannini, in 2005 she continue working as a freelance designer for three additional years before deciding to design and produce her own jewelry collection. Today she lives and works between Tuscany, Italy and New York.

The total jewelry collection is made in Florence, Italy and cast in sterling silver 925 and 18k gold by the same artisans and goldsmiths who produce fine jewelry for prestigious brands such as Gucci, Bulgari and Christofle. Many pieces in the gold collection are one of a kind or produced in a limited edition. All stones are chosen for their own properties and natural colors.

Join us on Saturday, November 30th from 12:00 – 8:00 p.m. at fotofoto gallery located at 14 West Carver Street, Huntington, NY. A percentage of all sales will be donated tofotofoto Gallery, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization.
