Viviana Langhoff’s work is centered on the idea of heirloom. “History, family, and storytelling are all often focused around objects; I’ve always wanted to design, craft, and make that heritage beautiful.”


Viviana established her point of view in the realm of fine jewelry after studying conceptual design at the School of the Art Institute. She continued her education in metalsmithing at Columbia College while simultaneously working under both fine jewelers and contemporary art jewelry makers. She’s now been working in design under her own name for over 10 years, creating custom fine jewelry, interiors, and decorative objects.

Viviana is known for her intricate metalwork, modern bridal styles, and one-of-a-kind pieces featuring unexpected hues, antique stones, and historical reference. Borrowing from the worlds of fine art, cultural adornment, and design, her custom 
work appeals to the expressive and open-minded individual— those who value individuality, creative collaboration, and are unafraid to stand out.

Viviana’s pieces can be found along 30 other artists’ work at her jewelry store, Adornment + Theory, in the Chicago neighborhood of Logan Square. When not working with custom clients and jewelry, Viviana can be found hosting gatherings, gardening, traveling, and spending time with her husband and two chubby pups.
