design process – cherries

the first step in our process is to pull as many photos of cherry jewelry as possible and put them all together in a post or mood board. this way we can have all the different points of view begin to assimilate in our brains. as we compare and contrast the differences and through lines, we begin to think about our approach. do we want to incorporate color such as enamel or acetate, or make these in solid silver? how reductive do we want to get? with simplistic items, sometimes taking away too much detail you lose the vibe of what makes the item fun in the first place. we love modern clean designs, however overly reductive designs bore us. Our process is to balance these notions and contribute something new to the design canon, as well as incorporate classicism with a touch of rebellion! anyhow, sit with these images, like we will and we will come back with some posts on the design process! Enjoy. Ttys 🍒

snacks

the tangerines are so epic right now. one of the reasons I love living in the city is for all the little food markets, of all the different ethnicities within the city. a friend of mine and I tour them all; recently we went to a Thai market, Chinese market and Korean market all in the same day! it was quite a tour. the tangerines at the Korean market were worth writing about and photographing! try the market in the Koreatown Galleria. the variety of fruits and goods is remarkable and delicious!

memory lane

Courtney Lowe, from LA Vintage Exchange, and I, at the World Famous Rose Bowl Flea Market! We used to do Sample Sales there; we had so much fun and learned so much about our businesses and customers. There is nothing like interacting with customers in person! .. Who knew that statement would be ‘the good ol’ days!’ ?
My old Studio in Venice, CA! I had always dreamed of having an art studio in the back of my house! I found the perfect little rental and voila, we made the perfect little studio for my jewelry bench and my painting work. Photographer and blogger @ChristinaJWarren took these AMAZING photos! So thrilling to look at them again and recall all the good memories!
@MarkandEstel invited me to collaborate on their jewelry on the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week catwalk! They starred in their own fashion runway and music show, which had never been done before! I also got to sit front row. They made all my fashion dreams come true, truly!
Got snapped by a famous street fashion photographer, wearing none other than Mark and Estel, Rossmore. and Chloe! Another dream checked off the bucket list.

And finally. That time I won @LAWeekly ‘s Best of LA Award for Best Local Jewelry! I truly couldn’t have been more honored or continued to be! The thing with LA Weekly awards is that real Angelenos have to nominate you, in secret, and then everyone votes, in secret, and then they just contact you and say you won!!!! It’s literally incredible I won. What good fortune! Thanks Rossmore. you are one lucky charm!

sparkle and shine

can’t get enough of sparkly things. it may legitimately be an obsession. . . & …nothing brings us more joy than working with stones. it’s as if each stone is a little friend, filled with laughter and joy ,, and we love sharing life, laughter, joy, and love, with our friends! hope you enjoy this shiny sparkly little set

Stones: morganites, blue sapphires, amethysts, diamonds, and tourmalines
