Sometimes designing jewelry is all about meticulous thought and planning. Other times, designing jewelry is completely intuitive, like the design happens almost through me. These earrings were like that, completely intuitive. After completion, they looked like they had been riveted and those rivet shapes made me think of Rosie, The Riveter. She exemplified strength, resilience, and ‘can-do’ attitude. With this collection, I want to celebrate these qualities in women: Strength to fight for fairness, resilience to stave off cynicism, and the can-do belief that, eventually, as a group, we can make positive change. Love to all.
