Todd Selby’s tour of jewelry designer Philip Crangi’s home in New York city adds a personal dimension to the artist’s line of bracelets, necklaces and haute baubles. As the abode doubles as his studio, it reveals a great deal about the brand with an up close look at his intricate headquarters.

Crangi’s interest in jewelery making began at a young age. As a child he would comb his parents house for secret pirate treasures. His early obsession with the world of buccaneering translated into his later work as his pieces deliberately imitate the looks of forbidden loot. Selby’s review of the home picks up on these marauding motifs with his snapshots of decaying walls and chipped wooden tables.
