Loving on Pamela Love.

Since I saw Pamela Love's work a while back, I have been hooked on the somewhat tribal, romantic, dark and organic work.  I know I have mentioned Ms. Love a couple of times in the past few weeks, speaking about the top CFDA finalists and their work with J. Crew (here) and also on my birthday wishlist (here) but I am ever so surprised with myself that I have not properly showcased the jewelry designer.  So that is what I am going to do riiiiight abouuuuut NOW. Pamela is a New York native and started making jewelry in her Brooklyn basement in 2006.  She has since then been a finalist and is running her own business with a growing in-house team in Manhattan and really showing the fashion industry that maintaining design and brand integrity, as well as fighting for your dreams, returns an amazing reward.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from her current collection featured on her own website:

There is also a great selection of items not found on the Pamela Love website at Shopbop.

Refinery29 posted a feature last week of a brilliant sneaky peek inside Pamela's studio that you can check out in full here along with an interview with the designer.
