Cornelia Goldsmith: Fine Jewellery

This is that time of the year when everyone is in a celebratory mood. And though gold prices have soared through the roof, there is no dearth of customers at Indian jewellery shops, who even stood in a long queue outside a shop to buy gold coins yesterday on the occasion of Dhanteras, considered an auspicious day in Hindu calender to buy gold. And then, from tomorrow we will celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, when most Indian women love to bring out their heirloom gold pieces and matching saris and outfits in gold brocade to add sparkle to this festival.

So I also felt like showcasing the work of a talented artist Cornelia Goldsmith, a contemporary art jewellery designer, on this occasion. Born in Berlin, Germany, she moved to the US in 1985 and established herself as a designer of repute. Combining her sense of design with impeccable technique and a keen eye for detail, Cornelia creates jewellery pieces that are both exquisite and powerful. She has received several awards and her works have been widely covered by various prestigious US magazines. She is a member of the reputed American Jewelery Design Council.

I especially love her style as it has some similarity with Indian jewellery designs. She is based in Sausalito, California and displays her work at some exclusive fine art and craft shows in the US.
