Fall Design Inspiration

Fall Design Inspiration

Boho Chic: Fall Design Inspiration


This collection is defined by rich color palettes grounded on neutral string with highlights of druzy and pearl. When I first sat down to design the collection there were a few components in particular that I was in love with:

- Faceted hematite with so much shine you would swear it was a crystal
- Druzy in interesting cuts and metallic hues
- Baroque pearls perfectly imperfect with a romantic feel
- Peacock pearls with an iridescent luster

My large wood design table was overflowing with crystal and stone combinations that were hand beaded onto spools of waxed string. My team and I crocheted the pieces one by one and the color stories of the season began to emerge.

I am so excited for Fall this year and to start layering up not only my clothes but my sparkles!
(Of course I write this as I have the air conditioning blasting in the middle of October… oh LA![f])

This collection celebrates timeless grace with a confidence of strength, and highlights the organic beauty of the art of crochet.

An Old Soul Branding

An Old Soul Branding

You may have noticed that our logo and color scheme are a little different these days... That's because we decided that An Old Soul Jewelry needed a makeover! We are very excited to unveil our new branding as of Fall 2017. My name is Erin and I am the in-house Graphic Designer here. I will be explaining the thought process behind our changes and introduce you to our new look and feel!


LOGO


Our new logo is representative of components that can be found on every piece, the toggle closures! While reevaluating what An Old Soul is all about, Designer Nicole decided she wanted the branding to represent what we do everyday in the studio. Our team of artisans handcraft each necklace with care and that includes the finishing touch, closing the necklace so that you can wear it! 


COLOR


The colors create an elegant and feminine feeling. The colors and images are layered with each other to signify the layering of jewelry that defines An Old Soul. Blush tones are popular in our jewelry so it was important to feature those tones in our new branding. The gold accent is used to create feelings of luxury and elegance. 


TEXTURE

The designs are inspired by nature and the natural components including freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones. The natural world is textured and An Old Soul embraces that element. Antiqued paper, woven materials, and the layering of design elements created texture within our brand.

We are very pleased with our new look and we hope you love it too!

Thank you for reading!
