love for both of us is a Brooklyn-based company that collaborates with internationally exhibiting artists to make high-end jewelry. The name comes from the aphorism “If you don’t love me, it does not matter, anyway I can love for both of us,” penned by the 18th century french author Stendhal. The phrase speaks to the intimacy of collaboration and the generosity of the creative process.
love for both of us grew out of my love for contemporary art. It is a way for me to collaborate with amazing artists that inspire me with their singular visions and unique observations. The power of the jewelry comes directly out of the energy emanating from the artist’s studio.
Each piece is made by hand by master artisans and highly skilled craftspeople. We use the finest materials to create precise details with an uncompromising standard. I am totally committed to a thorough process that enables the artist’s vision and brings it to form.
At any time, it is challenging to start a company. Of course doing so in the time of Covid makes it exponentially more difficult. Yet, I’ve been fueled by both the energy and the fight of NYC. I feel even more empowered by getting through these difficult times and coming out on the other side with these truly amazing projects.
I’m beyond thrilled to share these very special pieces with you.
