Cynthia Gale

For Cynthia Gale, jewelry is art. Every piece in each of her collection is created to convey to the wearer a sense of the cultural, historical or spiritual inspiration that went into creating it. Inspired by the architectural splendor of New York, Cynthia Gale created a niche for herself in the art world as a museum piece jewelry designer in the mid '90s.

Many of her collection concepts have shaped themselves through visits to Soho and Chelsea galleries, museums and the theatre. Cynthia's urban existence coupled with her exploration of a simpler lifestyle through her frequent production trips to Indonesia. In 1999, Cynthia and Glenn opened their midtown showroom to house the GeoArt collection. In 2002, the company launched its Cynthia Gale Signature Collection utilizing the fine art of repousse. Cynthia discovered a unique repousse workshop in Central Java and fell in love with the exquisite beauty of this time honored metalwork technique.

Through her signature collection, Cynthia currently holds licensing partnerships with over fifteen of our nation's leading museums and cultural institutions including: J. Paul Getty Villa, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and The Jewish Museum. She also creates unique product for The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Smithsonian utilizing this distinctive technique. Working with permanent collection pieces, incoming art exhibits and museum architecture, Cynthia creates contemporary collections of modern elegance.

        Comments about BROOKLYN BRIDGE EARRINGS:

        These earrings were beautiful. I have always loved the Brooklyn Bridge and these capture it without making them tacky. Definitely one of a kind.

        However I was only able to enjoy them twice before one fell out and went missing--still unrecovered. Since they were a Christmas gift from my boyfriend I was pretty bummed out that the post was loose after a couple wears. Other than that, I would recommend these but make sure you check the posts before wearing them and ensure they are secured tightly.
