Andrea Rosenfeld started her artistic journey at a young age, when she handed her father a drawing of a horse that seemed rather mature for the 5 year old. Realizing that she created the animal freehand, not by tracing, her parents agreed that art classes were a must.

Rosenfeld took art classes in grade school, and during the summer attended the Cranbrook Art Academy. After graduating from high school, she was accepted to the University of Michigan Art School in Ann Arbor, but soon found that their curriculum was not going to fulfill her dream of being an artist and working in fashion. After two years she left Ann Arbor and attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, where she completed her degree in Fashion Design.

Rosenfeld was Assistant Merchandiser for Perry Ellis Portfolio Menswear for two years before she was recruited by Isaac Mizrahi, Ltd., She assisted Mizrahi as his Director of Merchandising as well as Operations Manager. Rosenfeld was thrilled to be a part of the growth of Mizrahi's first company. After five years of loyal employment, Rosenfeld gave birth to her first child and decided to dedicate her life to her new baby.

During the years of raising her three children, Rosenfeld never truly left behind artistic creation. She designed cakes, refinished furniture, painted murals in galleries and museums. Her current foray into jewelry design is simply a part of her life-long dedication to artistic expression.

As for her philosophy, Rosenfeld uses skills from all areas of her past art studies. She does not confine herself to one specific jewelry technique, allowing the materials and stones to inspire her final design. Combining different materials into one piece is important: fabric and metal, stone and wood, metal and stone.

As a painter and fabric artist, she places texture as a main force in her work. Her pieces are big so they are assumed to be heavy, but Rosenfeld works to give the illusion of weight by carefully choosing materials that keep the designs light and wearable. Another art concept that influences her is asymmetry and movement. Rosenfeld's jewelry is a scaled down work-of-art with the woman's body as the canvas.
