Grace Kelly "To Catch A Thief"

Flashback Friday - In a time when the double entendre was used instead of graphic language I love this quote from Grace Kelly in the movie To Catch a Thief,  "Even in this light I can tell where your looking."  After all what self respecting thief would notice Grace when she wore this diamond necklace!

Ancient Jewelry Techniques Meet Modern Design with Nancy Troske

The Princeton Museum store described Nancy's work as, "holding a deep connection to ancient techniques in jewelry production."

Her new Intaglio collection is an Editor's Pick for new graduates because of the symbols of wisdom and healing portrayed in her Owl and Apollo rings respectively. Intaglio is a manufacturing style as old as Mesopotamia where vitreous glass pastes are molded into cameos or intaglios. Nancy's design aesthetic gracefully melds ancient jewelry techniques with new and fresh designs.

To see Nancy perform ancient jewelry techniques please view her video at Artisans at the Princeton Museum Store.

Nancy Troske and The Princeton University Art Museum

Check out Nancy Troske on YouTube discussing how to make jewelry from Ancient Coins.  https://youtu.be/VwIvtsN_zeE

Artful Jeweler's own Goldsmith Nancy Troske is a Princeton artisan who uses ancient techniques in jewelry-making and “re-interprets them for the modern world.” Her painstaking process brings her joy as she endeavors to create stunning pieces destined to become family heirlooms for today’s audience.

Troske adopts many of the labor-intensive methods used in ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt when creating her exquisite line of jewelry. Evidence of Greek goldsmithing dates to the first millennium. Troske points out that the methods she uses today, such as granulation, filigree work, and cloisonné enameling, are highly specialized arts. They have disappeared, and then reappeared many times over the centuries. Today, these prized techniques are experiencing a strong resurgence amid a renewed appreciation for handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces.
