VIENNA, VA. - The Women’s Tower Club of Tyson’s Corner was delighted to spend a morning with Monica Rich Kosann at Liljenquist & Beckstead Fine Jewelers; the award-winning jewelry designer shared advice and provided creative inspiration at the private breakfast to showcase her latest designs and benefit the Washington Humane Society. Washington Life executive editor Virginia Coyne moderated.

“My collection is all about storytelling,” Kosann told 60 guests over mimosas and muffins. “We should wear our stories and enjoy them and be proud of them. I love nothing more than working with women and creating one-of-a-kind pieces.”

Kosann began her career as a fine arts black and white photographer before going into the jewelry business with her husband ten years ago. Her inspiration for both, she says, comes from a similar place. “I’ve been very inspired by photographers from the camera arts period of the early 1900s. They were really the first who photographed family life but made it beautiful and artistic. At the same time there were a lot of women’s accessories that were beautiful, personalized pieces of jewelry.”
