June is here and summer (for us in the northern hemisphere) is in full swing. I’ve been taking time in the studio to create pieces that reflect the season’s beauty.
Also on tap re-working the studio and creating a functional yet funky space that inspires. Taking my shipping crate displays and some other odds and ends I was able to make a pretty cool space that inspires and helps me create for you daily.
The studio has proved to be the perfect place to teach jewelry making classes as well! Wire-wrapping and laughs = a good afternoon.

Happy summer to all!

For the last year I have created over 1,000 custom pieces of jewelry using my two hands and a set of very great tools! Many nights turned into mornings, listening to bon iver and sia in my Marina del Rey studio churning away new designs and customer orders for my line Golden Plume.
Friends urged me to share the footage we occasionally shot while the mood hit us. Well I have finally pieced together a little thing I like to call the “in the studio” series where I will post a new video once a month of creation inside the studio.
This month for the first “in the studio” let’s focus on The Blue Sea Glass Necklace, inspired by the beach and sea we live near this pieces is really unique and always gets lot of attention and questions when wearing, it also happens to take hours to create. My friends and family hung with me and shot some candid video and photos of the creative process that went into spinning gold and cage wrapping locally sourced sea glass to create this beaut.
The result, enjoy!:

Last year we were lucky enough to have a fantastic flash sale on the infamously cool design site fab.com. We got to create over 100 adornments and ship them all over the country to new customers from the sale. It was one of the best times we have had to date! Flash forward a year and we are back at it again! Starting February 17th we will be listing up a handful of special stone and gold necklaces from our spring line at deeply discounted rates on fab.com site. To celebrate we got creative this weekend and brought our fav model Laura out to play in colorful frocks getting ready for spring and getting some great shots for the jewelry that will be on the fab sale. Here is a sneak peek! Enjoy and happy almost springtime 🙂

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:
In addition the celebrities at the Globes will also get a chance to poise with (and purchase) our Emerald Agate necklace. (check back for photos in January):

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:
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:
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!
