Jerry Szor Contemporary Jewelry introduces a custom-made collection by Reiko Ishiyama for the gift shop at the Crow Collection of Asian Art.
Born in Japan, Ms. Ishiyama designs jewelry that is elegant in its simplicity and characterized by its extraordinary, unique finishes. She works in both sterling silver and gold, often combining or overlaying the metals to create looks that are both striking and organically soothing. To observe one of her pieces is to see the form she has released from a sheet of silver or gold, as if the earring, bracelet or necklace was implicit in the metal. Her work was offered at Takashimaya in New York City for many years, and she has received numerous awards in the US, Europe, and Japan.
