In the studio

Posted on

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.

In The Studio : Creating by hand

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!:

Gearing up for spring & fab.com round 2

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 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:
