Scosha

SCOSHA is a collection of jewelry by Australian-born artist and designer, Scosha Woolridge. Woolridge is a story jeweler, using travel tales as inspiration to create jewelry that combines the modern and ancient worlds, suitable for both men and women. SCOSHA draws from a mix of global influences and explores the romance, adventure and freedom within everyday life. Each piece is created as a play between materials and how that translates in terms of what is traditionally considered "precious" or "non-precious", "masculine" or "feminine". “Ultimately, the goal is lived-in style. It should feel as effortless as it looks,” says Woolridge, “and it's that natural sensibility that is really attractive.” Scosha's atelier is in Williamsburg, New York City.
