Jack and Gretchen
JACK + G is a design studio producing fine jewelry in Brooklyn, NY. It is a collaborative passion of Gretchen Anderson and Jack Danziger. We met while studying Industrial Design at Rochester Institute of Technology and Scandinavian Furniture Design at the Danish Design School in Denmark. Eight years later we formed a business and have since loved being part of the creative group of makers that are able to thrive in this amazing city.
At a young age Gretchen began studying fundamentals of classical design at The Barnstone Studios. To compliment her background in design and 3D form she has taken Jewelry courses at RIT's School of American Crafts, the Alan Revere Academy, and participated in diamond grading lab course-work at the GIA. These studies have strengthened her technical understanding, flexibility in technique and passion to be a jeweler.
Jacks early fascination with fabrication lead him to study mechanical engineering and industrial design. He has 9 years professional experience designing, engineering and fabricating bespoke architectural hardware. The methodology used during manufacturing and finishing are comparable to the production of fine jewelry only on a different scale.
Our combined knowledge and passion to create have come together to form Jack+G. We made the decision two years ago to officially form the business and make it a part of our lifestyle. We have created a home studio in Bushwick where we hand make all pieces for our online sales, wholesale and retail markets, and custom work including engagement rings and wedding bands
