    After years of designing his own jewelry, James Rivière formed a partnership with Bruno Munari and Luigi Veronesi to establish a new firm of jewelry design.  A result of constant experimentation with materials and offbeat techniques, his jewelry presents a sculptural quality, composed of geometric forms assembled to carry light and express boldness through color.  Mirroring these characteristics are the shapes and fantastic nature of his sculptural lighting designs.
