Footnotes

  • Paul Morelli credits his deep well of creativity to a hereditary trait. Initially on the path to become a journalist, his career was waylaid accidentally when he was asked to help create accessories for a New York City designer doing a fashion show. Growing up in a family that worked with their hands and loved fashion - Morelli's father was a costume designer, his grandfather was a tailor, and everyone in his large, extended family sewed - it is not surprising that he was both resourceful and manually adept.

    Today, Morelli oversees the jewels made by hand in Philadelphia. His approach is old world when it comes to dealing with clients. He is intrigued and delighted to design unique, one-of-a-kind jewels, as exemplified by the Fairy Tale bracelet. He frequently likes to transform everyday, ordinary objects with gems, as illustrated in the double compartment "Pill Box" necklace.
