NYC based accessories designer Louise Manna launched her first jewelry collection in spring '05. Louise, an innovative jewelry designer with a BFA in fashion design, incorporates her passion for clothing into all of her creations. Louise is inspired by the absence of--what is missing and needed to refresh our lives, starting with our wardrobe. Each jewelry collection combines her knowledge of clothing construction with conventional jewelry-making techniques. This approach paves the way for her cutting-edge design skill, creating wearable pieces that have a look and feel of fabric on the body.
