Roggio Jewelry is a playful and beautiful collection created by the wife and husband team of Susan and Victor Roggio. The jewelry they make is a wonderful reflection of the joy and creativity that they pour into it. The pieces are warm, organic, free-spirited and fun, and completely handcrafted by Victor and Susan in their home studio in Birchrunville, PA.
Victor and Susan have been collaborating on their Roggio Silversmiths collection for 50 years this year. They founded their jewelry line in 1970, after meeting while they were attending The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Their philosophy as artists is that they are persistent in their "unending pursuit of learning and understanding the nature of jewelry as art, and people's need for the beauty and joy that it brings." Their curiosity and creativity, and their commitment to this unending pursuit, have led to a distinctive collection and a tremendous following of admirers of their work.
The artists use a mix of sterling silver, brass, and copper, sometimes with stones or crystals - but the focus is on the beauty of the metals, their textures, and the way they interact with each other. You will see textures that are created from piercing, perforating, hammering, stamping, etching, and more. We love the way these textures seem so spontaneous, sometimes with silver flowing freely over the surface of a piece of brass, or the edges of a shape curling naturally from the heat of a torch.
