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

Some inspiration for Friday!

Had a little fun playing around with the idea of greatness. As we embark on our Fridays let’s keep in mind:

We are going GOLDEN..to the Golden Globes that is!

Lots in the pipeline, one of the most exciting things happening now, we were invited to gift at the upcoming 2013 Golden Globes! We have been plugging away creating by hand, over 100 small pieces that will be gifted to the celebrities and press attending the Globes! In addition to our gift bags we will have a representative at the Globes to show the celebrities our work and have them take photos with our display pieces! We are hard at work dreaming up the jewelry we will be creating for our display! The display will be created from pieces of salvaged wood and a lot of manual labor! The pieces of jewelry for the display will likely be created exclusively for the Globes using mother of pearl, gold and turquoise eco-friendly materials (perhaps the ring above as well). We will certainly share photos with you once we get everything to the Globes in January!

Fantastic color on a gorgeous lady – Nia Peeples !

This just in Nia Peeples looks fantastic in vibrant color! A few months ago we carefully selected bright fun materials and got to work on hand-crafting celebrity worthy stone and gold creations for Nia! Drawing on inspiration from Nia’s appearances in Pretty Little Liars and publicity photos we were drawn to creating her jewelry in bold hues that would compliment her perfect olive complexion and dark features. Once we were finished and happy with our workmanship we carefully packaged up and sent over the pieces to Nia via our membership to the fabulous Artisan Group (artisangroup.org) A true testament to the amazing character and beauty of Nia we got a tweet this evening from the lovely Nia!:

Not only do our Turquoise and gold ring and Green Leather Agate earrings looks AMAZING on her but she looks positively radiant in such vibrant color! Don’t you agree? A big thank you to Nia for her generosity to handmade artists exhibited in this lovely tweet which meant the world! So excited to see our adornments on her!  Also, check out Pretty Little Liars on TV you never know what handmade jewelry might appear on the show, she said so herself! 😉

Silver state of mind

SILVER TRIANGLE ART DECO DANGLE EARRINGS 

 

Over the last 6 months we have concentrated solely on creating gold. Whether that be for clients, in marketing our line or simply our mantra. Wildly successful among many, gold is just fun to wear however we couldn’t help thinking that we were leaving something out, that something happen to be silver. Last month we were lucky enough to get a custom order that opened our eyes to the power of silver. We created these triangle earrings as a favor for a customer who already owned the gold version. Ever since then we have been in love! We even listed them for sale on our website. Thus dawned our newest adventures a collection named simply, silver fox. It’s still in its early stages but silver lovers can rejoice to know most of all our creations can be duplicated in silver!
