Thea Grant and BAZZ by Thea Grant jewelry collections are a collaboration in design and exploration of artistic form by husband and wife duo Thea Grant and Nicolás Bazzani.
United under the studio name, BAZZdeGRANT, Bazzani and Grant’s collections combine their art-world roots with mannerisms adopted from traditional jewelry. The result is a thriving design studio attracting a broad audience including the fashion, design and media worlds.
Bazzani, native to Bogotá, Colombia, received a Masters in Product Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Grant, a Brooklyn local, graduated as a sculptor and Classics scholar from Brown University. They met in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2004 and found that a harmonious partnership sprang up immediately.
The Thea Grant collection has long held pace at the forefront of statement-making ‘found-object’ and haute ‘green’ jewelry. BAZZ meanwhile, a delicate, fine metals collection, more subtly exudes an erstwhile ethos. Each brand maintains the core BAZZdeGRANT ideology of re-contextualizing and re-using obsolete objects, curios, lost treasure and un-used caches of accessories found off the beaten track.
Grant and Bazzani bring new life to bygone materials and champion thought-provoking and story-telling designs intended to enhance and highlight the inner elegance and individuality of the wearer.
