Steve Riley Jewelry
A British native, Steve earned his BA with Honors from the University of Central England with a major in Art & Design.
He considers himself to be an artist rather than a traditional jeweler, although he has worked since 1996 in the jewelry making industry for both international selling jewelers and as an independent designer.
Since 2003, Riley has been creating hand made art & jewelry in New York City. Each piece is meticulously hand crafted from recycled metals. All Steve Riley rings are suitable for civil partnerships, engagement, weddings, eternity, anniversaries, birthdays etc. Stones can be added to most designs. Custom work is welcome accommodated via the web or by private appointment at his workshop in Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY.
I pride myself on making everything in house and never sourcing my work out out to foreign countries. I support human rights, conflict-free trade and environmentally conscious production. My designs range in style from hand made squiggle chains to animal print rings.
I like to work in what I call a “modern primitive” style, obsessing over each mark, the controlled and random details are critical. Strong, bold, and organic, each piece is created as a play between materials and how that translates in terms of what is traditionally considered “masculine” or “feminine”, “art” or “jewelry”.

Maiko Suzuki Jewelry
Maiko Suzuki’s original designs are hand-crafted and made in Harlem, New York. Her work is like wearing art—it is unique, limited and inspired by many cultures: Islamic Art, African sculptures, and Mexican architectures.
Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, at the age of thirteen, Maiko visited New York City and fell in love with the energy, the people and the possibility for an artistic life. She moved here on her own, at the age of seventeen, to pursue this passion.
Maiko’s jewelry makes a statement and her accent pieces are large and bold, fashionable and funky, intricately designed and light-weight.
“JJ” Frondrisi, grandson of Depression Era dressmaker and designer, stumbled upon his grandfather’s dress sketches & black and white photos of his family enjoying life in simpler times. 1926 was born that day. 1926 is a fashion line offering glamour and nostalgia in the comfort of cotton. –www.1926nyc.com
