Who is Pamela Love?

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 2.06.17 AM

Pamela Love is one of the most brilliant new and young designers I have discovered this year. I love her designs, and what I love about it more is that all her materials are ethically sourced, almost all the metals she uses are recycled and she cares about sustainability!

She does very bohemian-chic meets tribal meets goth type of jewelry. I have the “Single Cage ring” and I absolutely adore how it looks especially when I mix it with other rings. Her jewelry is very reasonably priced and I think it is definitely worth having a piece by her.

She also has a really cool tumblr where you can clearly see her inspiration for her jewelry (which is also where I got the above pictures from): http://pamelalovenyc.tumblr.com

My “Cleopatra” Cuff

I designed an upper arm cuff I called “Cleopatra”, it is silver dipped in gold (vermeil). I was asked if it could be used in a photo shoot in South Africa and I wanted to share it with you.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Tiffany & Co is one of the most famous names in jewelry business, specifically for its diamonds and engagement rings. They even made the famous Audrey Hepburn movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. I always had a bad perception of Tiffany’s and their jewelry, for some reason I thought they were boring and tacky. When I decided to go the store and take a look at their jewelry I was surprised at the beautiful and special pieces they had and the exceptional quality.

So the following are my five favorite collections and a few of my favorite pieces:

Tiffany Metro  I love this collection because they are very simple, but you can really tell they are of exceptional quality. From this collection I love the “Metro ring” because it’s an awesome piece to either stack or use to fill fingers (I love to put the rose gold one on my middle finger. I also love “Hinged Bangle”, I like all colors.

Tiffany Atlas This is a very new collection (2013) but I really like the bangles from this collection. You can wear the bangles for something elegant as well as with something more casual.

Tiffany by Elsa Peretti  Elsa Peretti is my favorite collection in Tiffany’s just because she has so many pieces that I love! There are so many that I would like to put in here but I only choose a few of my favorites.

Tiffany Celebration Rings  This collection shows rings from other collections that could be used as wedding bands. It is a very good collection to look over because they have beautiful bands that can be used for weddings but also to stack!
