Philip Crangi

Philip Crangi created this steel and gold necklace for the jewellery launch at Colette

• Philip is American. He lives and works in New York.

• He’s a self-confessed avid collector of anything from old maps to taxidermy.

• He makes his own models and prototypes and each piece of jewellery is produced in his New York City studio by a team of three goldsmiths who construct every piece by hand.

• Philip says: ‘Jewellery functions in three ways: as a memento, a talisman and a status symbol. I try to reflect those things in my work.’
