About designer, Altomare

Altomare, jewelry designer


Patricia Altomare, a creative jewelry designer, was a former public school teacher with a Master’s Degree in art.  She is a recent graduate of the post-graduate program in Museum Studies at New York University, where she was awarded the Director’s Scholarship.


Prior to her 29 years of teaching, she was employed by the Millinery Institute of America, NYC.  In this position, she was an integral part of planning major fashion shows for Fashion Week in New York City and had the privilege of working with famous celebrities, top models, and the Miss America pageant.  She has always had a love of accessories, particularly jewelry.


She designed and had a villa built in southern Spain and has lived in Rome, Paris, and more recently Amsterdam.  She enjoys travel and the stimulating environment of foreign cities.  Many of her jewelry designs incorporate unique, vintage pieces from markets in Paris and Amsterdam.


Patricia is inspired by Art Deco design from Paris to South Beach.  She includes many of the Art Deco motifs in her jewelry pieces. She is a collector of Bakelite, and enjoys mixing the Art Deco Bakelite designs with silver for a modern interpretation.

She lives in a MiMo building designed by Morris Lapidus in Lauderdale by the Sea, Florida.
