One Six Five has been an official business for just over two years. Before we started the line, we worked together at a small clothing boutique in Columbus. Kaleigh had recently graduated from Columbus College of Art & Design with a degree in jewelry design and I (Claire) loved all of the pieces she would make for herself. We decided to join forces and Kaleigh taught me the ropes of metalsmithing in her living room shortly after.
We are loving ear jackets and mismatched earrings! Mixed metal styles are also making frequent appearances in our jewelry rotation lately.
The Nicole, Pretzel, and Pretzel rings were a few of the first designs and have stuck around in the collection ever since! Our current favorite pieces are the Eclipse Ear Jacket…it’s super versatile and we love how the mirror finish catches the light.
Some of our favorite pieces are made by our jewelry designer friends! Kaleigh loves her fringe necklace from Ruhling Woven and I am constantly wearing my porcupine quill and chain necklace from Honey Rose & K.
We find lots of inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest. For example, we might see amazing printed dress or home good and try to incorporate the pattern or shapes into a metal design. As for future collections, we will continue to design dainty, everyday jewels with a twist![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
