I have always valued handmade techniques. So many of the products that we see today are made in a factory by machines with little to no human touch. When I work with natural materials with my hands, they speak to me and lead me in different potential design directions. This approach has always been and will always be my guiding light for An Old Soul Jewelry.
At the beginning of each new season I collect stones, crystals, pearls, and pendants, all different things that speak to me for their beauty, texture, or luster. I spread these materials out across my workspace and begin grouping them, shifting them, and looking for color stories to unfold.
I design for the woman that values the handmade. They look for quality, refinement, and a connection to nature. It is very important for me that the pieces we make are at an accessible price, something that, for example, a working mother can add to her everyday wardrobe. She is wearing not only a piece of art, but also a piece that is worth every penny.
Crochet and pearl work are the specialties of the line. Pearls speak to my heart and soul, I love their lustrous beauty that begins with a speck of sand and transforms into a perfect adornment with time. An Old Soul Jewelry is all about the process of transformation by hand and that aligns with the natural process of pearl formations.
