Jay Strongwater's love of the elegant but vividly bejewelled object has led him on a journey through the worlds of fashion and home accessories. In the 90’s, Jay serendipitously forayed into creating home accessories, which also led to the creation of his world famous picture frames which were fashioned from jewellery. An avid artist at heart even as a child, Jay Feinberg was born in New York in 1960. Further honing his design training at Rhode Island School of Design, Jay harnessed the trend for bold designs by venturing into fashion jewellery and ornamental accessories.
He is fascinated by the idea of taking everyday belongings: frames, boxes, clocks and turning them into a beautiful collage of metals, enamel and crystals. His vision is to offer collectors unique ways to experience Jay Strongwater in their home, in gift giving and in personal adornment. His meticulously designed jewellery pieces became the starting point for a career that spanned from window campaigns in fashion’s most prestigious stores, to haute couture runways, to worldwide coverage in notable fashion magazines. In essence, Strongwater created his own niche and his collection of decorative accessories, furniture and jewellery gaining him admirers from his home country USA and around the world.
