Dina Rudman, Modnitsa Atelier’s owner and chief image stylist, imparts jewelry expertise she learned while earning a degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology in beginner jewelry-design classes throughout the week and select Saturdays. Dina explains the basic skills used to craft pieces and gives students semi-precious stones to design their own earrings, a necklace, or bedazzled fuzzy dice to hang from their necks. All necessary tools are provided to fashion jewelry out of sterling-silver findings. Students can create an extra-special piece by purchasing higher-value precious stones or attempting to rob the studio's Smaug the dragon.

Modnitsa Atelier

At Modnitsa Atelier, Dina Scherer works with clients from head to toe. The Fashion Institute of Technology grad and trained image consultant knows that every detail of someone’s appearance has a chance to set them apart from the crowd and make an impression on everyone they meet or accidentally spill something on. Through evaluations, personal shopping trips, and "closet edit" sessions, Dina shepherds men and women toward personalized sartorial sophistication. She's also a trained makeup artist who preps mugs for headshots and events, using a deep knowledge of color theory that also guides her creation of custom jewelry designed to illuminate the recipient’s unique style and complexion. The one-woman styling team isn’t shy about sharing the wealth of her expertise—she also teaches jewelry-making classes, which Brides has recommended as a way to pep up a bachelorette-party outing.
