Living in Laguna Beach, California is an extraordinary experience. The ever changing moods of the Pacific coast dominated by the clear light over this incredibly beautiful landscape has captivated my thinking on design. As I studied how light appears on objects in different weather conditions, I developed a sense of how all things change not only from season to season but within the course of a single day. From the most subtle tones to the most dazzling hues the world around us is drenched with color. Seeing how colors impact our emotions and thought processes I shaped my designs to emphasize pieces with touches of brilliant color that shimmer in intensity and challenge the imagination.

All of the ivory used by Nan Fusco is 10,000 to 40,000 year old fossilized Mammoth Ivory. It is found in the Arctic tundra of Alaska, Canada and Siberia. Fossilized ivory poses no threat to any living creature and is legal and unrestricted. Ivory color may vary. Every Nan Fusco piece is hand made in Laguna Beach and beautifully gift wrapped in a recycled natural kraft box with muslin jewelry pouch, finished with elegant wired grosgrain ribbon.
