Mish Fine Jewelry Pagoda Brooch Auction to Benefit Cheekwood Estate & Gardens by Cheekwood Estate & Gardens
Esteemed Fine Jewelry Designer, Mish Tworkowski, is delighted to present an iconic brooch from his collection to benefit Nashville’s Cheekwood Estate & Gardens and support their mission to preserve Cheekwood as a historic landmark where beauty and excellence in art and horticulture stimulate the mind and nurture the spirit. An avid horticulturalist, Mish specially selected his Chinoiserie Pagoda Brooch featuring a 56.5 carat white topaz center stone mounted in 18k gold with over 2.5 carats of princess-cut diamonds, diamond briolettes, pavé diamonds and a white cultured South Sea pearl. 100% of proceeds will be donated to the historic museum and botanical gardens in Tennessee. Mish has a long-standing relationship with the museum and gardens as an avid patron of the Swan Ball, one of the premier charity events in the United States that benefits Cheekwood. About Mish Mish Tworkowski, nationally acclaimed jewelry designer of his eponymous New York City based company, is widely regarded as one of the US’s most talented and exciting fine jewelry designers. His love of gardening and the natural world has inspired the whimsical design of Mish’s iconic jewelry pieces. Flowers from his Upstate New York garden, tree bark found on frequent trail hikes in Colorado or sea life from beach walks near his Florida home often become beautiful jewel-encrusted necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Mish’s personal style has been celebrated by the press as well. His shops, apartments and  country houses have graced the pages of home magazines such as Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, and Veranda. His dandy, custom-tailored dressing has placed him on the International Best Dressed List and the acknowledgment of his gifted design ability has resulted in his induction into the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America.  About Cheekwood Estate & Gardens: Cheekwood is a 55-acre American Country Place Era estate in Nashville, Tennessee.
