One of a long line of extraordinary women jewelry designers promoted by Tiffany & Co., Angela Cummings worked for Donald Claflin in the 1970s. He gave her the freedom to experiment and develop her own distinctive style. At Tiffany, where few designers were allowed to mark their work along with the house itself, her creations were designated with a "C" in addition to the Tiffany signature.
