Philip Crangi, a New York based jewelry designer is putting the fire to the metal with his creations that are inspired from Greco-Roman artifacts, Baroque ironwork, and Japanese armor. You can find the trained goldsmith's collection at Barneys amongst boutiques through out the country and overseas, he has also collaborated with Vera Wang. The fusion of Vera's elegant style and Philip's hard and edgy designs produced genius pieces. Crangi often time begins his creations by doodling on the subway, then goes back to his work room to create his vision. Currently, he's been inspired by African and Art Deco, two of my favorite styles! His jewelry are for both men and women.
