Magnificent natural minerals, raw, semi-precious, and polished stones, vintage glass crystals and findings, resin mesh, lavish gold leaf and patinas - all materials sculpted by Pauletta Brooks, to create her unique designs, eye-catching manifestations from a mysterious world of beauty and fantasy. Blessed with a bountiful imagination, this graduate of the Arts from both Hampshire College and The Fashion Institute of Technology shapes each piece individually, instinctively allowing the material to dictate form while always keeping in mind the function to the wearer. Her signature is unmistakable: sculptural, organic, bold 'signature' pieces that often look as if they've been dredged up from the sea in a mermaid's lair.
Valued for her ingenuity and original designs, her jewelry has been featured in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, The New York Times, New York Magazine, Details, The Daily News, and Ornament Magazine as well as shown in the Folk Art Museum of New York City and the galleries of The Fashion Institute of Technology. All handmade in New York City, each of her designs is a one-of-a-kind wearable art piece valued by all who treasure their own uniqueness.
