Our teamD. Muscio fine jewelry studio designs with passion as we aim for perfection. Co-founders Dawn Muscio and Jacqueline Williams offer attentive customer service experience based on their commitment to quality and studio values.
Co-Founder and Jewelry Artisan
Dawn Muscio is an award-winning, custom jewelry designer and metalsmith. A 25-plus-year veteran as a unique fine jewelry artisan, Dawn creates one-of-a-kind pieces in gold and platinum for discerning private clients across the country. Her designs are handcrafted from top-of-the-line materials, including responsibly sourced gemstones, recycled precious metals and conflict-free diamonds, while subscribing to the highest standards of excellence in craftsmanship.
Dawn holds a B.F.A. from the internationally recognized Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y. She accredits her savvy professors from steering her away from a graphic design major to fine arts, and a twist of fate for finding her true passion after opting for an elective course in jewelry making. She found her calling and never looked back, as she began her career in New York City, working with top designers and honing her own signature custom handmade jewelry design style.
Co-Founder, Operations Director & Digital Realization Designer
“I’ve always been technically oriented. I was the kid who wanted Legos for Christmas and took apart whatever I could, just so I could see how it worked, and then put it back together again,” she says. Jacqueline’s puzzle-solving talent comes in handy as she works in CAD to take each client’s custom jewelry design from paper to a digital 3D rendition as part of D. Muscio’s unique five-step process.
Immediately after graduating from Georgia State University with a masters degree in Marketing, Jacqueline accepted a position as project coordinator and marketing assistant at Gensler, an international interiors and architectural design firm. During her tenure at Gensler, she learned the principles of Computer-aided Design (CAD) programs. Jackie then made the move to a boutique database software-consulting firm, where she was the Director of Operations, wearing many hats and learning so many of the necessities of running a small business, from marketing to human resources and accounting to project management.
