Artist Saundra Messinger's jewelry designs are funky, elegant, confident and cool. The imperfect geometric shapes are reminiscent of the sea glass produced by the two rivers she loves, the Mississippi and the Hudson. Women are drawn to the uneven surfaces, shimmering matte finish, tiny sparkling diamonds and expert craftsmanship. The hard metal and soft finish of her necklaces are symbolic of the women who wear them: strong, yet feminine.
Saundra, a former singer and clothing design executive, says, without a doubt, the most important and exciting thing since becoming a jewelry designer is when she sees a woman wearing her designs.
