We know Jeffrey Smith can work some magic in a salon chair. Now, the creative artist is trying his hand at a new medium: jewelry. At the Jeffrey Smith Collection Launch Party, more than 150 guests gathered at the Jeffrey Smith Studio for the unveiling of his new line of high-end, unique jewelry. Smith designed and handcrafted each fashionable accessory himself. Cindy Urbach, a fellow jewelry designer and event attendee, says, “Jeffrey’s designs are creative and novel with color, texture, and composition. It’s hard to imagine that Jeffrey could have become this accomplished in less than a year.” While perusing the pieces, jewelry lovers nibbled on hors d’oeuvres prepared by Kevin Hermann, the executive chef at The Porch at Schenley, and sipped cocktails mixed by Lou DiDonato of Eclipse Lounge. Smith’s collection is sold exclusively at Jeffrey Smith Studio.
