Contemporary Jewelry Designer Monica Rossmanith Unveils the Grecas Collection, In Time to Celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Mexican Independence


Influenced by Pre-Columbian Art, Rossmanith’s Handsome Designs Blend Classical Patterns with Modern Styles to Create a Timeless Collection



NEW YORK, NY (August 5, 2010) — Contemporary jewelry designer Monica Rossmanith announces the upcoming September release of Grecas, an original collection including necklaces, earrings, bracelets and belts. Grecas will be available at Item New York, a respected SoHo boutique, and founder Boaz Sade is pleased to add the collection to his offerings. “I draw my inspiration from designers like Monica,” says Sade, “and her designs carry a sense of effortless beauty and grace. Her love and passion for art and nature are evident in her work, and her execution is a feast to the eye.”


Rossmanith draws much of her inspiration from Pre-Columbian images, and her newest collection is no exception. Traditionally, grecas are known as the repeating geometric patterns found in the designs of Mexican cultures including the Aztec, the Toltec, and the Mixteca.


Rossmanith has used these patterns as a starting point for her modern pieces, and because of this, her Grecas Collection is as unique as its ancient counterpart. Each piece is created by hand using techniques such as molding, hammering and brazing brass; specific pieces are also silver-plated, gold-plated, or oxidized. Semi-precious stones including rainbow obsidian, malachite, lapis lazuli and amber are also featured.


Since Rossmanith and the Grecas Collection are so strongly tied to Mexican aesthetics and culture, the premiere of Grecas has been timed to coincide with the bicentennial celebration of Mexico’s Independence on September 16, 2010.
