Serena Van Rensselaer
Serena’s intrigue with jewelry began as a young girl, when she used to visit her grandmother and her namesake, Serena. The elder Serena was an extremely talented painter who loved all forms of art. But it was her collection of jewelry that captivated Serena, for she had pieces from around the world, and each piece had a story behind it.
Serena grew up in New Jersey and went on to study Art History and Cultural Anthropology, before revisiting her childhood passion of jewelry design in San Miguel D’Allende, Mexico. It was there that she took her first metal class and fell in love with the creative process. Serena worked, studied and traveled to Europe and the Caribbean, honing her skills as a metal smith.
New York City is now home to Serena, where she balances her time raising her son and teaching NYIAD jewelry students.
