American Hustle, starring Christian Bale and Amy Adams was released in 2013. It tells the tale of a con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive partner Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild F.B.I. Agent, Richie DiMaso, who pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and the Mafia.
In this film, Amy Adams wears a wrapped dress that my client purchased on auction. For display purposes, The Collection commissioned our studio to recreate the necklace that had been worn in the film.
After researching the costume designer and the possible resources for the jewelry used in the film, we decide to needed to make our own piece. A few adjustments to the design and the “new” necklace was recreated all within budget.
We search many jewelry supply stores in LA – what resources to take advantage of – and found what we needed. It was a quick job.
The Collection of Motion Picture and Costume Design is a privately owned business that I have been working with for the past several years. Each project is very unique. Some jewelry pieces that I create for them are historically significant while others are indicative of the style of the times. Each project presents its own artistic challenges.
