Age-old artisanal techniques have always given Los Angeles based Andrea Gutierrez Jewelry its muscular, roughed-up glamour. The refined yet imperfectly shaped spheres, dagger-like spikes and scarred surfaces offset with precious gemstones and marble-size pearls are an edgy presence in the world of fine jewelry.
Inspired by art and architecture, engaging both the Brutalist and the Baroque, Andrea prodigiously produces unique modern designs with heirloom potential. As fearless and committed as any sculptor, Andrea hand-carves and casts her pieces in solid gold and solid sterling silver, often accented with a spray of precious or semi-precious stones and maybe a Tahitian or South Sea pearl as big as a gumball.
Bold but never vulgar, brilliant but not glitzy…more Met Museum than Mar-a-Lago, these pieces project their polyglot appeal with exquisitely layered and imaginatively applied materials referencing both ancient and modern culture. Andrea Gutierrez, designer Andrea was educated in Europe and now resides and works in Santa Monica, California. Studio visits are by appointment. Custom orders and commissions are accepted.
