The Story of Orange Avocado Jewelry... » new collection
Christmas has come and gone and the rush of the orders and deadlines have subsided. January is always a different mix of busy. So many to do things on my list get crossed off; because I have honestly procrastinated the inevitable. I turn up the music and start on the list. First a foremost is cleaning my studio. I'm glad to say that I am 1/2 way there and it's only the first week of January!
Then there are the supplies which I take inventory of. Do I have enough silver and bronze for the upcoming season? Add now a touch of solid gold...that's exciting for me! You will see the expansion of my new 14 kt solid gold collection. Each piece made to order one gorgeous piece at a time. That's what we call slow fashion.
I am also working on my new Spring and Summer Collection. Let's just say that it's sweet, bright and pretty! I am always looking for ways to set my jewelry apart from the masses. One way is creating each piece one by one; there is no mass production involved.
Another is the launch of my new packaging. I'm so excited to share it with you. Your jewelry will be packaged in a beautiful black slide out jewelry box and a micro fibre jewelry pouch with the Orange Avocado Jewelry logo and a ziploc baggie to reduce tarnishing. In efforts to reduce our impact on the environment you do have the option of choosing your preference for the number of boxes and jewelry pouches.
I'm moving into my 20th year of creating jewelry for you. And each year I feel like I'm just getting started. Scrolling through Instagram my friend posted this saying: "You will never always be motivated; so you must learn to be disciplined." After 20 years, I truly believe that this is why I'm still here.
The Luna Collection is about the moon and the stars.
My dad used to pick me up from piano lessons when I was young. And each night from the car to the house we would gaze up at the light of the moon and stars. Each night my dad and I would look for the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper. As we navigated the dark sky together he always found these two constellations first and I always found them second. This was the constant between us.
This past summer my husband and I travelled to Summer land BC & we slept under the stars...literally. We put mattresses on the dock and watched the falling stars. The black sky was lit up with all of the constellations. This time I found the Big and Little Dipper first, on my own. Decades later that constant & emanating light still shone.
I'll never forget those simple nights with my dad and that short little walk that included gazing at the moon, the stars and the big and the little dippers.
The Luna Collection is about those walks, the discovery of the moon and the stars and family.
This collection is nolonger available.
