Byrdcliffe will be holding an ARTIST SPOTLIGHT for jewelry designer Chorthip Lagnese on Saturday, May 11, 12:00 to 6:00 pm at the Byrdcliffe Shop on 36 Tinker Street in Woodstock, NY. The Artist Spotlight will focus on Chorthip’s work, and everybody will be able to meet her at the Byrdcliffe Shop and find out more about the skills and fine artistry involved in her elegant and timeless jewelry items.
Chorthip Lagnese is a former Tiffany&Co. jewelry designer and the recipient of several international design awards. Originally from Thailand, Chorthip’s training was in Industrial Design from the Silpakorn University in Thailand, the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and the Uno A Erre, in Arrezzo, Italy. She moved to New York City to study and work in the jewelry fabrication business and spent four successful years at Tiffany’s where she was one of the key designers on the Frank Gehry Jewelry collection.
Since the launch of her own jewelry line in June 2009, under her name “Chorthip”, she has created several innovative jewelry collections, including: Infinity, Rain, Pebble, Spiral, Nugget, Wave, Knot, and Helix. Chorthip draws her inspiration from her strong cultural background in which nature plays a major role. Her jewelry proves to be timeless and has been called “where modern meets classic and elegant”. Chorthip works in her studio in the town of Woodstock, NY most days but you can find her on weekends practicing yoga, and chasing after her two young boys.
