on inspiration

Olivia creates every piece from beginning sketch to final product, which for the maker, the process is just as important as the end result. She works mostly in brass, gold and silver and create pieces that toe the line between fashion and art. Jewelry is such a sentimental art form that often carries a story—like wedding rings or your grandmother’s old locket—so the hope is to create pieces that are simple in form, but tiny statements or conversation starters. 


& "IN their OWN WORDS... "


on favorites

I drink my coffee out of the same mug (almost) everyday—I made it in a college ceramics class and it fits in my hand perfectly. I also have a box of old letters and photos that I've treasured for years and will never throw away. I love my slippers--they are the first thing I put on when I get home at the end of the day. I also love my Chemex coffee maker. It makes the best cup of coffee ever!!


On Style

I love to mix the old with the new. In my clothing and in how I decorate my house, I often findmyself wanting to incorporate my love of vintage pieces with modern or bold accents. 


on fun quirks

I just gave birth to my first child and am learning what it will look like to juggle parenthood and owning my own small business. It’s definitely a challenge, but I feel super lucky to get to do two jobs that I love! My other passion besides jewelry is pottery. I have dreams of having a studio big enough to house a wheel and several kilns. I had a ceramics professor in college who exclusively used handmade dishes, cups, etc at home and ever since I saw her collection, I've wanted to make the same goal for myself.
