Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Chicco discovered her knack for jewelry design at an early age. By the time she attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, she had committed to a major in metalsmithing and a lifelong pursuit of adornment design. With a horizon-expanding sojourn at the Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy under her belt and several apprenticeships with well-established jewelers on both coasts, Chicco set off to design, create and produce her own unique line of jewelry. Zoë Chicco’s gift is an ability to create personal, classic pieces that are at the same time versatile. Delicate and modern, sexy but elegant, her everyday pieces are significant enough to be worn alone but delicate enough to wear layered together.
