I had a ‘Mother/Daughter Day’ shopping jewels for my upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. I always like taking her with me; she’s honest. Sometimes brutally so, which is fortunate (or unfortunate depending on my mood) because it’s so easy to get stuck in a design habit.
It’s nice having a little extra insight.
My style has always been decidedly girlie. Short dresses, lace, pink~ you name it, it defines my look. And while this has always been reflected in my jewelry design, I’m aiming to be a little edgier for Spring/Summer 2013. It’s turning out to be a little harder than I had anticipated; it’s like going against a girlie force of nature.
The process has been made easier with my finds of gorgeous metal-esque looking pyrite, darker more intense stones and little skull details (albeit in rose gold). So hopefully this will add a little depth to the collection.
Then, as our ‘Mother/Daughter Days’ often go, we stopped by a cafe in the design district for some sauvignon blanc and catching up. Perfect way to end our shopping day…
