About CC & Co by Catherine Canino. I've been designing jewelry since my first gorgeous pasta and yarn necklace at a kitchen table in Connecticut, 1972. I've always possessed an insatiable obsession with fashion and design which led to a fancy art school education. Once graduated, reality settled in followed by gritty jewelry factory work and industry design gigs. It wasn't my favorite. My brand began in a studio apartment on the Upper East Side with a slightly illegal torch, a tumbler, and many late nights of hand crafting each piece. I love to pull inspiration from the darn beautiful world we live in. In particular, because we do play favorites: antique jewelry, equestrian tack, nautical hardware, and vintage magazines. Our favorite stone dealer and leather tannery are the source of seasonal color palettes. Most inspiring though, are the stylish women of all ages that wear our pieces with personal adaptation. Everything, and we mean everything, is handcrafted in the NYC. After inspiration strikes, it is time to get our hands dirty.
