SEE following Articles found online:From Media Bistro By Diane Clehane on April 10, 2013: Last month, I was thrilled to break the news in this very column that Angela was returning to the jewelry world with her collaboration with Assael. Angela’s storied career is the stuff of industry legend. Starting as a design assistant at Tiffany & Co. in 1968, she became one of the company’s key designers before striking out on her own in 1984. Having sold her original designs at the country’s most luxe retail emporiums, including Bergdorf Goodman, Angela closed her eponymous company at the height of her success in 2003 and moved to Park City, Utah From the Chicago Tribune October 26, 1986 by Margaret Sheridan: Angela Cummings` Dishes Provide A Feast For The Eyes A Jewelry Designer Who Creates Gems For The Table"The jewels Angela Cummings creates are for conspicuous consumption.The New York jewelry designer, better known for her stunning bracelets, necklaces and earrings in gems and metals befitting King Midas, has designed a line of tableware. ``I always wanted to do china and flatware. Working in silver and porcelain is similar to working with gold and gems. It takes time and lots of detail."From The Fashion Encyclopedia: Born in Klagenfurt, Austria, in 1944, Angela Cummings moved to the United States with her family at age three. She returned to Europe to study at the Art Academy in Perugia, Italy, and in 1967 earned degrees in goldsmithing and gemology from Zeichenakademie in Hanau, West Germany. Upon graduation at age 23, she moved to New York and immediately joined Tiffany & Company, where she remained until 1984. After creating her first full collection under her own name in 1975, she became one of a small group of well-known, innovative jewelry designers (along with Paloma Picasso, Jean Schlumberger, and Elsa Peretti) associated with Tiffany. Cummings was known mainly for working in 18-karat gold as well as platinum and sterling silver, highlighted with exquisite gems. But she often mixed these materials with unconventional counterpoints such as wood. Although Cummings continues to favor organic designs, she sometimes surprises by adding geometric pieces to her collections. From the CORNING MUSEUM OF GLASS Rakow Research Library Catalog:Angela Cummings for Arita.Trade catalog. Angela Cummings designed a collection of porcelain tableware settings for Arita, which includes a crystal stemware collection.
