American Hustle, starring Christian Bale and Amy Adams was released in 2013. It tells the tale of a con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive partner Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild F.B.I. Agent, Richie DiMaso, who pushes them into a world of Jersey power-brokers and the Mafia.

In this film, Amy Adams wears a wrapped dress that my client purchased on auction. The Collection of Motion Picture Costume Design commissioned our studio to re-create a necklace that was worn with the costume in the film. We recreated the Amy Adam’s jewelry from the film.

After researching the costume collection and the possible resources for the jewelry used in the film, we decide that we would need to make our own necklace for display. With minor adjustments to the chain, our “new” necklace was recreated within budget.

The Collection of Motion Picture and Costume Design is a privately owned business that I have been working with for the past several years. Each project is very unique. Some jewelry pieces that I create for them are historically significant while others are indicative of the style of the times. Each project presents its own artistic challenges.
