SFMoMA-inspired Jewelry from Vanessa Gade
Friday, December 20th, 2013
In 2007, San Francisco-based jewelry designer Vanessa Gade began her eponymous line with the goal of creating perfectly balanced geometric pieces that maintain an element of movement while simultaneously making the most of negative space.
Nearly seven years later, her 2014 collection—titled Linea—is for and inspired by the new building expansion at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA). She's taken elements of San Francisco's best architecture, such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Sutro Tower, and melded them with interpretive views of the SFMoMA's expansion construction plans. Her Kahlo earrings, Rivera cuff, and Linea necklace all took inspiration from aerial views of the building's new footprint.
Gade's past collections been inspired by a multitude of things, from Ikebana flower arrangements to the deco architecture of the 1920s, and her work has appeared in fine boutiques and galleries across the country. This collection will debut at the SFMoMA store by the end of this year.
