PROFILE IN GOLD: MARY HUGHES AND CARO-GRAY BOSCA
What came first – the friendship or the business? Ask Mary Hughes and Caro-Gray Bosca and you’ll elicit two big smiles and energy to match. The Hughes-Bosca partnership was born over twenty years ago. Together their creative work has been showcased in galleries, shows and museums across the country.
Today, as goldsmiths, they will tell you they are equally explorers.
“Our most inspired work springs from impromptu discoveries in everyday life... an old rusted steel bolt from a walk in the woods, a Japanese Tsuba from a New York flea market, a Turkish treasure at Istanbul's Grand Bazaar. France, Italy, and the desert of Arizona all spark our imagination as expressed by color, shape and material.”
In the world of fine jewelry where first impressions count, Hughes-Bosca are not afraid to dare the senses. Pastel stones hang off necklaces like grapes on a vine. Gold ligaments connect a rainbow of sapphire balls to lustrous South Sea pearls. The past meets modernity in a reprised Romanesque-style ring. This is not your grandmother’s (or mother’s) jewelry. For all its boldness, the work retains a timeless appeal.
Their spirited approach has led to an increase in commissioned pieces that make an audacious but refined statement about the wearer. Unlike commercial jewelers who produce a quantity of like pieces, customers welcome the individualized attention and design of the Hughes-Bosca team.
Trust is a cornerstone of their personal and business practices. This has been key to their strong relationships with international gem and gold dealers, ensuring the highest quality materials and sourcing.
