Jeweler & Silversmith
Thierry Astesano is a jeweler who works in platinum, gold and silver. For Sign of the Dove, he works primarily in silver to create earrings, rings and bracelets, as well as unique desk accessories such as his graceful bookmarks, money clips and letter openers. For this collection he uses the technique of forging, giving unique texture to each item by hammering. Thierry accepts custom orders in gold and platinum, as well as repairs.
A native of the Mediterranean coast of France, Thierry became interested in making jewelry as a teenager. He later learned to work with fine metals at the North Bennet Street School in Boston, from which he graduated in 1996. Thierry is a resident of Cambridge.
