About the Designer

Esther Fuhrman

Esther Fuhrman is an internationally recognized sculptor whose work appears in numerous corporate and private collections in the US and abroad. She is best known for her large bronze sculptures. One appeared in New York's World Trade Center until its recent destruction.

In 1986, Esther began by offering a collection of jewelry called "Sculpture to Wear™" at the international Art Expo in New York's Javits Center. She was then honored by selection as one of twelve "new designers" featured at the prestigious Jeweler's of America Show in July 1987, where her gold and silver Limited Editions were acclaimed by fine jewelers internationally.

As the Fashion Jewelry category was growing very rapidly, Ms. Fuhrman introduced a line called "Office to Evening" targeted at the business and professional woman.

Over the past 15 years, she had designed and manufactured private label jewelry for some of the largest retail chains in America and abroad.

As a woman designing for women, Esther concentrates on accessories for active and working women. Her jewelry combines fashion & function to both enhance the wearer's appearance and help solve a problem. Five years ago, she patented the hidden loop - a device that pulls down from the back of a pin to hang your eyewear (or name badge or keys). When the loop is not in use, it is behind the pin and invisible. Now the wearer displays only a great looking designer pin.

Personally, Esther has three daughters so many of her designs for women are inspired by the "reality show" of their needs. She is constantly trying to "re-invent" design, based on today's technology to make our everyday lives a little easier and a little more fun. She has taught public speaking for Dale Carnegie for eight years and hones these skills by presenting her designs on QVC as a guest. She presently serves her community as a member of the Zoning Board of Adjustments where she has been elected Secretary. She appreciates and is inspired by multicultural designs and people from all over the world.

Esther Fuhrman is listed in numerous US and international Who's Who, such as "Who's Who" - Eastern Edition and "Who's Who in American Art."
