Bold, kinetic and sculptural with an elegant interplay of angles and curves, Vanessa Gade's jewelry makes a contemporary statement balanced with timeless style.
She describes her work as contemporary, with clean lines and a minimalist aesthetic reminiscent of Japanese and Scandinavian design. Particular pieces have been inspired by everything from art deco architecture, ikebana flower arrangements, suspension bridges and even crisscrossing power lines. Vanessa's designs tend toward an asymmetrical pattern encased within a perfect circle. She enjoys the challenge of creating a perfectly balanced geometric structure that still maintains an element of movement, all the while utilizing the negative space as an integral part of the design.
Vanessa attended the Graduate Jeweler program at the prestigious Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in 2006, realizing a childhood dream of moving to San Francisco and her goal of pursuing her career in jewelry.
