Jewels for the Home...
At the heart of the Jay Strongwater brand is the designer himself. Jay's beginnings as a high fashion jewelry designer are apparent in the details of each piece he creates.
Jay's illustrious design career has involved a string of serendipitous occurrences - beginning with a homemade strand of beads that he designed and hand-strung for his mother. Those meticulously designed beads became the launching pad for a career that spanned from window campaigns in fashion's most prestigious storefronts, to haute couture runways, to coverage in the world's most notable fashion magazines.
Jay's first picture frame design is also surrounded by his signature penchant for serendipity. The story has become a legendary one. In fall of 1994, while working in his New York City studio concepting an idea as a gift for one of his fashion buyers, Jay laid out one of his crystal earring designs. He did so in four corners creating a rectangle. He then constructed the framework connecting the four corners together. The result: the Patricia Frame named for his mother - an exquisitely Swarovski® crystal-glistened frame that held a photograph.
Not only did the buyer appreciate the gift, she wanted to know where she could get more of those frames! Those were the brilliant beginnings of what have become some of the most sought after decorative designs on the market.
Jay and his work have been recognized and celebrated by collectors, celebrities, and dignitaries alike. His first Beauty Collection, designed to commemorate vintage Hollywood, was chosen to fill the coveted gift bags at the Academy Awards. He was honored as a distinguished designer at London's Chelsea Flower Show's 200th Anniversary. He has also been a special guest at Harrods' "Fantasy Garden" event. Jay has also utilized his design expertise to garner support for worthy charitable organizations.
