Insider the beautiful mind of Philip Crangi



Philip Crangi graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design where he studied design and gold-smithing. He worked for William Lipton, Japanese artist Mariko Mori and sculptor Michele Oka Doner before launching his own fine jewelry line in 2001 with the help of his sister/business partner, Courtney, followed by Giles & Brother by Philip Crangi, a line of lower-priced silver and costume jewellery.

Since then, Crangi has also designed runway pieces for Phillip Lim, Vera Wang, Shipley & Halmos,Sue Stemp and Jason Wu, among others. He won the CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design in 2008, designed a line of art deco-inspired jewelry for Atelier Swarovski for fall 2009 and designed the spring 2010 jewelry for the upcoming Michael Bastion, Boy/Band of Outsiders and Shipley & Halmos New York Fashion Week presentations and has opened his own store in the Meatpacking District.

About thematerialsleuth

I work in the digital industry and this blog is an outlet for things that I admire whether its design, interior, graphic, fashion, styling, industrial, architecture, art, illustration, music or other bloggers etc. I constantly search for different artists who do not grab the media attention or have high profiles brand ambassadors pushing their products.
