My jewelry game is not subject to trends: I've essentially been wearing the same pieces every day for more than 10 years: a slim yellow gold wedding band strung through a yellow gold box chain, layered over a shorter gold necklace, a classic watch, and a rotating assortment of silver and antique gold rings, bracelets and earrings. Rarely do I find a piece that it earns a spot in my permanent rotation, partly because it is so difficult to find high quality, timeless pieces that are also affordable.
I was recently introduced to Chicago-based designer Lindsay Lewis' amazing line of jewelry that passed my ultimate jewelry investment test: "Would I pass this on to my future daughter?" It was a 'yes' to nearly every item. Lindsay's pieces have an expensive, vintage art deco feel but are made with affordable-yet-quality materials to keep her prices refreshingly affordable. Her work fills the (pretty bare) niche between fine and contemporary jewelry, a great source for unique items that you'll own and wear forever. I've added several pieces from her current collection to my Christmas list (hint, hint to Wes) like these earrings, this set of cuffs and this necklace.
Lindsay was nice enough to take the time for an interview for this little blog - read on for more about how she's grown her business, her advice on building a timeless collection of jewelry, and her design icons
