Jewelry by Vanessa Gade

San Francisco-based metalsmith and designer Vanessa Gade’s jewelry is so good that I could easily go broke buying every single piece she’s designed. Her work has that clean and minimalist aesthetic that is a modern design lover’s dream. Clean lines and simple forms are the base of each piece with beautiful craftsmanship and interesting designs to boot.

Geometric shapes are formed with the use of the chain breaking up the interior space of each piece. The pieces have a bold sculptural look about them yet they remain simple and delicate. Her use of different metals makes the varied collection perfect for just about anyone (especially me).
