Weiss is an American artist. She holds a BS in Fashion Design from Syracuse University and has created course curriculum for The Fashion Institute of Technology where she taught for two years. Born in New York City to an entrepreneurial family, Weiss loved building structures at a very young age and began working with crystals in her teen years. Although Weiss has worked for some of fashion’s most well-known icons as a fashion editor and stylist, it is her lifelong passion for art and design that led her to first create jewelry and later functional and sculptural contemporary art with earth elements as her focus. Weiss and her work have been featured on the Today Show, as well as in Forbes, Robb Report, Italian Vogue and various other fashion, luxury and design outlets throughout her career.
