Cheri Dunnigan Fine Jewelry
"I am decidedly low tech in my approach, using traditional, time-honoured fabricating techniques. For me, there are no shortcuts."
Growing up in Boston, Massachusetts, designer Cheri Dunnigan was blessed with a natural creative drive. Over the years she developed her artistic talents, making her first piece of jewellery at the tender age of 15. For the next 7 years she studied Silversmithing at the Cleveland Institute of Art, moving on to hone her craft in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. Today, she runs her own boutique, working with fine metals and precious gems to create a beautiful range of jewellery that’s perfect for any occasion. From the Armenian Needle Lace-inspired pearls and diamonds of the Dandella collection to the ornate, delicate metalwork of the Woven collection, Cheri’s work harks back to the artisan craftsmanship of a bygone era.
Renowned for: Beautiful, intricate pieces crafted from precious metals and pearls.
Handpicked by JewelStreet because: Cheri draws on her Armenian heritage to create contemporary jewellery with a traditional twist, and the result is simply stunning.
