This morning, The Shophound got a special late Summer treat with a visit to American jewelry designer Dweck8Stephen Dweck's showroom. There is little that can compare to the opportunity to peruse drawer after drawer of the designer's inventive fusion of silver, quartz, bronze, minerals, crystals and any other material that has struck his fancy. There are no simple chains and charms here. As jewelry trends return to bolder, more extravagant shapes, we could say that Dweck is ripe for a resurgence, except that he never really went anywhere. After early, overnight success collaborating with designers like Geoffrey Beene and Oscar de la Renta, the designer set up a boutique at Bergdorf Goodman and has kept his customers happy with a steady stream of inventive work featuring inspired combinations of surprising materials all made in his own Brooklyn workrooms. His latest effort is a collection featuring younger, lighter point of view that can be found at Bloomingdale's (pictured right) as well as an exclusive collection for QVC that routinely sells out.

Dweck is about to celebrate 30 years in business next year, and one of the highlights of our visit was a look at the archives cabinet (pictured above) featuring special items the designer has kept over the years including one-off custom pieces and unique items too precious to him to be lent out to stylists and magazines.

We could easily have spent all day poking through the showroom, but you can get a better idea of what we saw by clicking through our gallery to see just a few of our favorite pieces.
