Claudine Drescher started Cousin Claudine Inc. In 1999. She passed up a scholarship to Law School to pursue her passion, jewelry design.With 20 years experience in watercolor and oil painting, and degrees from The Fashion Institute of Technology and Hunter College, Claudines artistic ability has evolved into a successful business.
Claudines inspiration and creativity derive from sources such as current events, vintage images, nature and the innate beauty of natural materials. Her trendy and hip jewelry is created from semi-precious stones, pearls, sterling silver, 14K gold filled and is meticulously crafted by hand with great care.
As a designer, Claudine always considers the consumer. She wants her clients to feel special and unique when they wear her creations. I feel that jewelry should enhance the woman, not dominate her look.The philosophy Claudine believes in when designing her line is that the collection should be unique, beautiful, affordable and always fashion forward. Price is also an important factor for her. She feels each piece should hold their fashion and financial value. The consumer should not have to make a large investment when purchasing fashion jewelry.
Cousin Claudine jewelry can be found in such upscale stores across the country as Bergdorf Goodman, Fred Segal L.A., Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Nordstroms, Neiman Marcus, and Anthropologie as well as many high-end boutiques. Her most recent press can be seen in US Weekly, Glamour, Self, Lucky, NY Magazine, and In Style to name a few. You can also see her jewelry worn by Debra Messing, Katie Couric, Fran Drescher, Kelly Ripa, Britney Spears, Molly Sims and many other famous individuals.
