Happy, Healthy 2013

We hope your 2013 has started off right filled with lots of happiness and health! We are excited to get going on a new year of designing and creating. Golden Plume started one year ago and its been such an incredible journey to watch something grow from a dream and two hands. This year we resolve to create an even larger fan base filled with repeat customers and fellow artisans. Another huge goal is to find like-minded stores that want to sell Golden Plume (we are taking suggestions!). I want my hands to be black and blue from all the creating this year….Of course we will keep you informed along the ever evolving journey…….

Here’s to a successful and bright 2013 for all! Lets make it count!

Winter News

Winter is here and we are happy to spice it up by being included in Soul & Salsa Magazine’s Winter Edition ! Golden Plume’s Rainbow Agate Necklace landed a place on the pages of their unique holiday gifts article with the likes of Badgley Mischka and other talents:

Keeping with the winter theme we recently created an icy cold (but dangerously hot) Diamond Quartz Statement Necklace to be worn on HBO’s addicting vampire saga, True Blood. We sure hope Vampire Pam or Tara romps around in our handcrafted piece:

Finally as you know we were working feverishly to finish 100 of our Agate and Quartz Statement Bracelets for the upcoming Golden Globes in January. Every celebrity attending the event will be receiving one of these beauties to take home:

It took over 7 hours to create 100 of these by hand. Luckily I had the most amazing helpers. They even blessed each one with good L.A. vibes:

November full of Joy

This month has kicked off right! Last night we attended the Raw Natural Born Artists Semi finalists awards in West Hollywood, as a nominee and had an extraordinary time meeting other fellow accessory designers including the winner, incredibly talented, Joolz Hayworth!

In prep for the show we had one of the best photo shoots ever with new designs made specially for the event. As you know by now in addition to designing and creating the jewelry I also shoot all the photos with my lovely model friends! It always ends up being lots of fun. Just hanging with friends shooting new work, music playing, laughter and beauty abound! Here are some photos from our past shoot with my model/friend Laura. Also don’t forget to check out the new pieces on the website:

 

RAW show = fantastic time!

A couple of weeks ago my handmade jewelry company, Golden Plume Jewelry was part of the RAW Natural Born Artists that showcased around 40 up and coming artists from the Los Angeles area. Prepping for the show consisted of a few very packed weeks filled with lots of display creation and loads of fun jewelry making in my studio in Marina del Rey. This was our first show as a company and it was more fun than we even could have dreamed.  Met a bunch of wonderful art loving new customers, other talented peers and got to watch some kick ass performances in both fashion and music. We were even nominated for the RAW Semi-Finalist show at the Key Club (7PM Sunday Nov.11). If we have enough votes we will be nominated to the nation wide finalist round and get featured in LA papers as well as meet a Fred Segal buyer. So yes, we are excited! Audience members who come to the show will make up 50% of the vote! We are asking all our local LA fans to stop by and vote! Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door. We are handing out a small trinket to the first 15 visitors from this blog and our Facebook fans! We hope to see you all at this sweet, art filled show.  http://www.rawartists.org/losangeles/rawards2012

In the meantime here are some photos from the last RAW event:

Raw Artists in Lala Land!

Its been quite a busy month my apologies for not writing! We have been gearing up to be a featured artist in the RAW NATURAL BORN ARTIST: LA show “Provocations” on October 11th at the Mayan in downtown LA. Around 40 amazing artists from all genres of creativity (film, painting, fashion, hair, makeup, etc.) are going to be displaying themselves to quite a large audience. Golden Plume (my handmade jewelry company) was chosen to be included with three other jewelry designers in the fashion accessories category. It’s such an honor! The prep for the show has been on our minds since we got the invite. From salvaging old shipping crates to create unique displays for our jewelry to creating bold loud pieces that will stand out in the magical dark and mystical venue The Mayan it has been a lot of fun!

Last Friday we got a walk through of the The Mayan and were instantly transported back to our days of clubbing on the NYC scene. It was a large venue with loads of secret passages and ancient decor abound. As we sorted out among the artists who would set up where and what fashion designers wanted to work with which hair artists for the runway shows I took a deep breath in and decided this was going to be a big deal come the show date! Excitement!

If you happen to be in the LA area on October 11th make sure to grab a ticket.  Tickets are $15 and support Golden Plume and the RAW Artists organization. To purchase your Provocations ticket follow the information below*

Hope to see you there!
