Its official! As some of you know, I've been working on a jewelry line with my good friend/old boss Alina. As kindred souls, we've shared the same frustration at the lack of any great "mommy" jewelry. We wanted to show off our babies names, but couldn't find anything that we really wanted to actually wear. So we took our combined design and retail experience and came up with PinkySwear.
And (drumroll please) as of yesterday our line is in the Santa Monica location of This Little Piggy Wears Cotton, and by this weekend will also be in Newport Beach, Montecito, and Santa Barbara locations. We are so excited!! Our website too will hopefully be up by this weekend, and I'll be sure to post when that is up.
In the meantime, here's some pictures of what we're doing. All the pieces are made from 99.9 pure silver. The silver we use is recycled silver that is combined with an organic binder, that we sculpt and fire (like clay). When you fire the pieces, the binder burns away and you are left with the (almost) pure silver. It makes the silver a really nice pale color, and all the pieces have this really great handmade, organic feel to them. And since there is more silver content than sterling, it doesn't tarnish as easily. We're also really excited that all the pieces are really flexible, in that we can add (or subtract) whatever you want from them. So if you want a piece to show your love for your babies, your puppies, your man, whatever, we can do it.
Please feel free to show this to all your nearest and dearest (and whatever strangers you run into too!) :) I'll be sure to post again as soon as the website is up!
Also, I owe a HUGE thank you to my brother-in-law, Chris, whose amazing pictures really made all this possible (aren't the pics bee-yoo-tiful??). There's no way we could be where we are without those pics, so THANK YOU SO MUCH and I owe you some horchata! :)
