Inspired by her maternal grandfather's passion for jewelry making, Caroline Bergonzi learned bead works within the close circle of Paris haute-couture suppliers. She has left a mark on the catwalks for designers such as Ungaro and Lacroix and, later, on covers and pages of prestigious international magazines. Since then, Bergonzi also established herself in a fine art, as a painter and a metal sculptor. In 2013, her broad experience of both fashion and arts resulted in a new precious metals jewelry line.
From large metal sculpture to precious metal jewelry, the artist Caroline Bergonzi is now creating wearable artwork. The art studio is located in Greenwich Village, NYC and every piece is hand made in Manhattan.
In parallel to her life dedication to the arts, she has a special love for high fashion and jewelry. Alumni of the prestigious Institut Francais de la Mode, she worked with Paris Couture companies – LVMH, Christian Lacroix and John Galliano, learnt jewelry making with suppliers for Ungaro and Givenchy and accessed the magic world of Francois Lesage embroidery mythic atelier. In New York, she has worked as a stylist with jewelry top brands, including her two favorites Van Cleef and Harpels and De Grisogono, with fashion designers and showrooms, advertising agencies and photographers, for still life jewelry images, musicians and more. Her work was featured on more than 400 pages of international magazine editorials. Among others, Caroline Bergonzi also served as the Fashion Editor of Trump Magazine and styled campaigns for Loreal Professional and others. Her own jewelry and accessories have been featured on the covers and in several magazines, including, Z!nk in the USA and Metropolis in Asia.
Crossing her authentic artistic vision and her expertise in Couture, CAROLINE BERGONZI ART JEWELRY is powerful, and unique in its diversity, from a perpetual exploration of themes, techniques and textures.
Years ago, she designed jewelry under the name KISS&FLY. The techniques were the ones she acquired in Paris haute couture. They were mainly beaded compositions, with semi-precious stones, such as garnets or turquoise, bone and glass beads. She is now came back to jewelry, with a deep experience of fine arts metal sculpture, to infuse it in small dimension for people to wear them. She works with precious metal work: silver, brass, gold and vermeil. The array of creations is large, including… fashion jewelry, non-conventional wedding bands, headpieces, earrings, delicate chains, cuffs, and more.
Beside her own personal design and hand made collection, the artist also works on commission, for special projects. Click here to co-create something unique, for now and the next generations.
