    Kieselstein-Cord: American artist Barry Kieselstein-Cord’s remarkable jewelry designs made their grand appearance in 1973, introduced by Georg Jensen, New York. His work took both the jewelry and art world by storm. An immediate success, Kieselstein-Cord’s sculptural designs set him up as the driving force propelling jewelers’ art in America. He works in green and black matte finished silver, gold and platinum, creating whimsical animal, heart, cross, sun and moon compositions. Regardless of the form: jewelry, belts, eyewear or accessories, Barry Kieselstein-Cord focuses on metal craft with stones acting as a secondary component. He has built an enormous designer-owned fine jewelry company, selling his distinctive merchandise internationally as well as in the United States. The winner of numerous awards, some of his designs can be found in Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the Louvre in Paris as well as prominent private collections.
