We are inspired mostly by what we wish was in our own closet. The goal always is to listen and react to our custom clients and create pieces for them that they cannot find anywhere else. As a designer, I do miss being in NYC and sitting on the subway and seeing such a wide variety of people and fashion and being inspired by that. In California, I am inspired by the LA art scene and what is going on in fashion on film. Above all else, each day it is about creating pieces that would make our clients, friends and acquaintances feel like they have an extra glow the day they are wearing one of our pieces. We like creating conversation starters.
Specifically I am currently inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, Ralph Lauren, Banksy, Chuck Close, Kelly Reemtsen, NPR and The Rolling Stones.
That’s very kind of you to say. I don’t think I ever think of it that way. I am always very flattered to get picked up by such huge outlets by just word of mouth but it means as much to me to see one of my pieces in a big magazine as it does to create a custom piece for a client to wear on her wedding day or on a first date. It is just wonderful to do what you love and have people want to wear your pieces because they make them feel excited in someway. My favorite compliment to hear is when clients tell me that when they wear my pieces they get lots of compliments on them. I am very aware at the point that a client purchases a piece, it becomes a part of how they present themselves to the world. That sounds sort of silly but I find that so flattering.
We use a wide variety of materials. Swarovski crystals, vintage findings and many other non-typical jewelry materials. We are always on a quest to come up with new ways to create pieces in unusual ways that are innovative, easy to wear and more than anything we are always hoping to create wearable pieces of art.
We are always more then happy to receive feedback from our clients as to how to make our pieces better and more functional. It is a struggle to have to marry an idea with something that can be produced on a larger then one or two scale and fit a wide variety of clients. An example is the friendship bracelet with the hand ties. We have experimented in many ways to create a closure that is functional for the widest variety of people… which is always the rub.
We are experimenting with a line of clutches for bridal and other occasions that will follow the same principles as our hugely popular custom bridal cuff. It will bring the same attention to vintage details, customization and one of a kind design to the clutch world. We are also always trying to create head pieces that are a unique and the modern answer to the traditional veil that brides can wear with any dress and still feel the specialness of her wedding day.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
