Meet the maker

Jean Prounis

Meet New York-based, Jean Prounis, who works with only one color of gold; the 22k buttery yellow that we know from visiting museum exhibitions of ancient times. From Greco-Roman to Pre-Colombian, her vivid creations encompass ideas from civilisations long lost. In an imaginary conversation with her grandfather, Jean’s jewellery speaks to times of both yesterday and tomorrow, transcending time and honoring the grounding and protective powers of gold. Listen to Jean tell about her work!
