More is More
Photographer/Designer Monica Rich Kosann began as a museum & gallery-exhibited fine art photographer who specializes in black and white portraiture of children and families. She continues to photograph individuals and families both in the U.S. and Internationally.
Inspired by her visits to flea markets and antique shops where she collected vintage lockets and other pieces, Monica created her own collection of lockets, charm bracelets, jewelry and gifts designed to hold what is most precious to all of us - our memories and the images of our friends, families, and those we love. Her jewelry collections have continued to expand and incorporate timeless pieces designed to be heirlooms in a womans life.
In January 2010, Monica was awarded the RISING STAR Award for Fine Jewelry from Fashion Group International. In June 2010 Monica was inducted as a member of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America)
Monica has worked with clients for years on how to incorporate their photographs, precious heirlooms and collectibles into their homes. To that end, her new book LIVING WITH WHAT YOU LOVE was published by the Clarkson Potter Division of Random House in April 2010. Her e-magazine mrkstyle.com was launched in 2009 and explores many of these same ideas.
