Phoenix Roze is located in the west village, one of the trendiest shopping areas for new yorkers, it oozes beauty and elegance. Hand worked clusters of stones are made into exciting jewelry and into works of art.
This is not surprising considering that the designer, Guy Rozenstrich, is classically trained and has earned his BFA in 2003 in fine arts from the School Of Visual Arts, and is MA from the New school in Media Studies and Film:" I always considered myself an artist who fell in love with jewelry making. It does not really matter if you paint on canvas or make beautiful jewelry. My inspiration is always life and nature. My goal is to create beautiful pieces that will last forever and add beauty and excitement to our lives" says Mr. Rozenstrich.
The stones are hand picked and Mr. Rozenstrich personally makes every piece of jewelry with passion and love. Not only does he enjoy the design part of it but the process itself as well. By doing so Mr. Rozenstrich believes that he imbeds his own love and energy into each and every piece. This kind of energy never fades. Mr. Rozenstrich is a second generation jewelry maker. His father was trained in the jewelry art of filigree. As a child he remembers his fathers drawer being filled with magical stones and pirates treasure.This fantasy world as a child is now becoming his own reality.
Phoenix Roze is one of the best-kept secrets in the jewelry world. Recently started in NYC, its first collection is already breaking waves. The designs are at times simple, at times elaborate but never conventional. Each piece is composed with brilliant colors and shimmer. The quality of the stones is unmistakable.
