Peter Messina graduated from SUNY Geneseo with a Bachelors of Arts in Art Studio in 1973. After a ten-year apprenticeship at the renowned jewelry store in the five towns, New York, known as Forley Jewelers, Peter branched off to open his own shop, Messina Bros. in Huntington, NY, where he serviced customers between 2002-2016. Since then he continues to create one-of-a-kind pieces in his design studio & works with students, teaching them how to fabricate their own designs from start to finish. He has always enjoyed creating new designs, as well as bringing his customers' and students' vision to life with his guidance and fine craftsmanship.
