Through The Artisan Group we were given the opportunity to gift celebrities and press at GBK’s 2013 NY Fashion Week Luxury Gift Lounge. I needed to make 75 of the same item that would be included in the swag bags. I knew my fall collection was going to be centered around a leaf theme so I thought it would be great to do a pair of earrings that represented the fall collection. I chose to make these sterling silver hammered leaves with tunduru sapphires.
I personally hand cut each leaf from a large sheet of sterling silver. 150 leaves were needed for these earrings. I have never had to make such a large amount of any one item from hand before so I had no clue if I was able to get them done in time but I had a plan to make X number a week. Once I got started cutting out the leaves I got a great rhythm down and ended up finishing the earrings a month early. I have always known I loved production and repetition and this was great proof that I am good at it too. Each pair of earrings vary slightly by color. The strands of sapphires vary in color from clear to reds, browns, greens, yellow.
I had been wanting to redo my earring cards ever since my rebranding last summer. This was the perfect opportunity to do so. I had new earring cards made up and found the perfect aqua ribbon for the boxes. I am so happy with how everything came together!
