Vanessa Gade

Vanessa Gade

Bold, kinetic and sculptural with an elegant interplay of angles and curves, Vanessa Gade’s jewelry makes a contemporary statement balanced with timeless style. The diverse urban landscape of San Francisco provides the ideal creative backdrop for Vanessa’s work and can be seen in the architectural qualities of her jewelry designs. The structural nature of her pieces is gracefully countered by a fluidity and movement influenced by her love of the ocean and her youth along the beaches of Southern California.

She describes her work as contemporary, with clean lines and a minimalist aesthetic reminiscent of Japanese and Scandinavian design. Particular pieces have been inspired by everything from art deco architecture, ikebana flower arrangements, suspension bridges and even crisscrossing power lines. Her designs tend toward an asymmetrical pattern encased within a perfect circle, evident in her debut Inner Circle collection first launched in 2007, which now has become her signature line. She enjoys the challenge of creating a perfectly balanced  geometric structure that still maintains an element of movement, all the while utilizing the negative space as an integral part of the Metal and Design.

Her work is now featured in fine boutiques and galleries around the country, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Architecture + Design Museum in Los Angeles. Vanessa wishes to thank her parents, maman and pop (je t’aime et merci!), her lovely family stateside and abroad, and all the friends and fellow artists that inspire and touch her life daily.
