Orly Genger- Artist and Jewelry Designer

While at a fundraising event last week I caught up with a classmate of mine from Brown. She is the incredibly talented Orly Genger. Orly creates sculptures and large-scale installations from painted climbing rope. Her work is included in several collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, Hood Museum, and Indianapolis Museum of Art. Wisely, she has branched out into the world of jewelry and her necklaces and bracelets are to die for. She uses the same painted climbing rope to create texture and weight to her jewelry that I find irresistible. Statement pieces at reasonable prices.

Forget the nautical white rope bracelets of your youth. These are totally fabulous!
