Jewelry Design for Costume

 
The process in designing jewelry can be complicated. But as long as you can see it in your mind, tell me what you want and I can draw it - then I will be able to make it for you.

Our first project working with The Collection of Motion Picture Costume Design was to recreate a pendant worn by Ingrid Bergman in the film classic “Gaslight”. It was our belief that this pendant may have been from a personal jewelry collection and was worn in the film to complete the costume. Costumes were designed by Irene Maud Lentz, an American fashion designer and a costume designer from the 1930’s.

As with all of our projects we start with a few images from the film and just jump into research and design development. Some projects are easier than others - all of them are unique! That is what is so great about this job.
