Welcome to Open Studio, a Racked feature where we explore the workspaces and showrooms of some of the city's most talented designers.

Fine jewelry designer Liz Phillips is based in Brooklyn, but the stunning gemstone pieces from her namesake line are produced by artisans in Jaipur, India. "When I'm in Jaipur I get so inspired," she says. "The architecture, the traditional jewelry, the textiles, the in-your-face rush of the city...for a designer, it's a totally awesome place to let your imagination run wild."

You can find her some of her rings (in chrysoprase, amethyst, tsavorite garnet) at Catbird in Williamsburg, and her earring studs (in labradorite, carnelian) at Collyer's Mansion in Ditmas Park. She's a gemologist and a goldsmith, so her apartment is filled with beautiful stones, historical reference books, and antique jewelry from her travels across the world.
