Hudson Valley Jeweler David Urso believes in the "inspired way" and following life’s organic path…“I never follow a straight line. I’m always looking for inspiration to take me wherever it is meant to.” It is the way he lives his life, and it is the way his illustrious career has evolved from his Signature Collection to his current Altered Stone Collection to his new Modern Victorian Collection.
Urso’s devoted clientele cover a wide range of women of taste from Melinda Gates, Carol Meyer to a mighty posse of artists that include Deborah Harry, Melissa Leo, Elizabeth Bracco, Oprah Winfrey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Isabella Rossellini, among others, including Hudson Valley locals and weekenders from NYC.Occasionally a client will act as muse, inspiring a piece or even a significant collaboration. Madison Avenue store owner Yuta Powell encouraged Urso to experiment with elaborate, one of a kind fashion pieces for a private collection. He created unique 18k gold necklaces and accessories for the Yuta Powell Store on Madison Avenue, New York City. In 1990 Urso launched the Signature Collection and The New York Times Style Maker took note. The collection was an immediate hit and was featured in Barney’s New York and Japan, Zona in New York City, MOMA New York and San Francisco.
