Inspired by everything from the beach at sunrise to her daughter's unbridled creativity, New Jersey-based designer Andrea Panico creates jewelry that reflects her love of architecture. "I design simple and unique pieces that feature custom connections and transitions. I'm fascinated by how things work," explains Andrea. Just for us, she designed a lighting collection based on some of her most popular pieces. "My background is in industrial design and working with west elm brought me back to that world."
"I approach jewelry design like an ‘architect of small things.’"
