LUCIA PERLUCK HAS BEEN DESIGNING AND MAKING JEWELRY FOR OVER TEN YEARS. SHE HOLDS HER BFA FROM TEMPLE UNIVERSITY’S TYLER SCHOOL OF ART WHERE SHE STUDIED METALS, JEWELRY AND CAD-CAM. SINCE GRADUATING FROM TYLER, LUCIA HAS BEEN EMPLOYED IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY AND WITH STUDIO JEWELERS IN NYC, WHILE ALSO MAINTAINING HER OWN ARTISTIC PRACTICE. THE PRODUCTION OF HER WORK TAKES PLACE AT BROOKLYN METAL WORKS WHERE SHE HAS BEEN AN ACTIVE MEMBER FOR FOUR YEARS.  

LUCIA APPROACHES HER WORK AS A PROBLEM-SOLVER. WHEN DESIGNING JEWELRY OBJECTS, SHE BEGINS BY EXPLORING THE UNIQUE OR UNUSUAL WAYS IN WHICH THE PIECE COULD BE WORN, QUESTIONING WHAT IT COULD PROVIDE FOR THE WEARER APART FROM ITS AESTHETIC QUALITIES. SHE CHALLENGES HERSELF TO LOOK BEYOND THE CONVENTIONS OF EVERYDAY JEWELRY BY INCORPORATING CLEVER MECHANISMS IN HER DESIGNS THAT ENCOURAGE THE WEARER TO INTERACT WITH THE PIECE IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE. LAUNCHED IN 2014, LUCIA PEARL JEWELRY AIMS TO BRING THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED PIECES TO THE MAINSTREAM MARKET.
