JANY Review

By | August 22nd, 2017|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

This past Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday was the JANY show. Our first show! What an amazing experience! I cannot say enough good things about how well it was run, how much help and guidance we received from Liz Kantner and staff at the show. Liz is a darling and she made our first trade show experience smooth.

Well, after we got there that is. We hit a pot hole and popped a tire on the drive in. There is nothing like popping a tire in the city! Luckily, my wonderful brother and husband were there to fix it in no time flat (I’m hilarious). We made it in with plenty of time to set up and meet all of the other amazing designers in the featured “New Designer Gallery.” We even had time to snap this picture:

Luckily for us, we were across from an AMAZING designer, Jackie, from Salt and Stone. I have to say, you never know where you are going to find such great people but between both Liz and Jackie, we count ourselves as SO lucky.

The Wave and Splash© collection garnered a lot of interest, especially to those looking for a cohesive, organic jewelry collection. The feedback we received was amazing and we have already begun to incorporate them.
I hope to see you at our next trade show…whenever that might be, so that you can see everything we have done.

JANY show

By | August 22nd, 2017|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Sunday is the big day! We will officially launch the Wave and Splash collection at the JA New York show and we are super excited. We are one of 10 featured new designers.
This has been a long process, wrought with the normal highs and lows of any entrepreneurial adventure, and it’s hard to remember a time when we weren’t chasing down gems, sending late night emails to the manufacturer, or sitting on calls trying to explain what we are trying to create so that it can be accurately portrayed on a CAD drawing.
Even today, we are chasing down the castings for the last few pieces so that we can get them over to the manufacturer to be finished. I can’t help but think back to where this all began, that first piece for my wedding. If I could reach back in time, I would shake her, thank her, and yell at her all at the same time.
Starting a business is hard.
Late nights and early mornings are hard.
Spending all of my extra hours is hard.

But it is all worth it. I love the results. The jewelry is beautiful, exactly as I had imagined.

The quality is superb, more than I could have hoped for.

These pieces, I have made them for all of you. I hope you like them.

Welcome to the grand opening of the AGD website! It has taken a lot of learning just to get to this point and we welcome all of you to enjoy the ride with us as we continue down this entrepreneurial journey.

Here at AGD, it’s all about the jewelry and it’s all about YOU. Over the coming weeks, we will highlight all of the pieces in the Wave and Splash collection so that you can get much more up close and personal with each of them.

These pieces are meant to help tell and complement your story, because your story is what matters! We hope you find the same inspiration from them that we put into them.

Thank you, sincerely, for visiting our page!

Coral Earrings

By | August 31st, 2016|Categories: Wave and Splash|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

Coral pendant, check.  Coral Ring, check.  But, what is missing?  Perhaps…Coral earrings?  Well look at that, we have exactly that right here.  Two tones?  One tone?  You sure can.  Pick between a few stones?  I wouldn’t have it any other way.  Organic?  Always.

These earrings are the final piece to the Coral puzzle that I have put together for you to find.  I hope you like them.  As with the ring, you can mix or match metals and select from different stones.  Use all three pieces to play with your look or create a cohesive look by using the same stones and tones.

These earrings won’t disappoint!

Coral Ring

By | August 24th, 2016|Categories: Wave and Splash|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

You can do so much customizing with this ring!  I just love it!  Because we make this ring in three pieces, you can use a variety of colored metals to create a truly ‘you’ look!  But wait, you can ALSO get it in different colored stones!  Ugh, I’ve been watching too many infomercials lately.

Crazy pitch aside, we love the idea of mixing different metals (14K, 18K, rose, SS) with your choice of stone as a way to tell your story.  Like all of my pieces, I want you to immediately think of organic jewelry and uniqueness.  That is what I strive to create and I think I’ve done it here.  What do you think?

Coral Pendant

By | August 17th, 2016|Categories: Wave and Splash|0 Comments

For this piece, I was inspired by the seemingly delicate Corals of the Caribbean, which have survived for thousands of years.   There, I heard coral referred to as the jewel of the ocean which, when you are scuba diving, is easy to understand.  I thought, ‘why not let the jewel of the ocean meet some jewels of the land?’

This necklace gives the impression of delicacy from afar.  But, pick it up and you will feel its strength from the weight of the piece.  Wear it every day or for special occasions.  It will stand the test of time!

While I love this piece (I love them all), this one is my husband’s favorite.  He says it goes with everything (he tries; I know).  But match this piece with the Wave Drop earrings and you have a start to a beautiful look that you can enjoy anywhere!

We use garnet, London blue topaz, amethyst, or citrine in this piece but are happy to discuss other stones of course!  Like all of our pieces, we can use a variety of metals but the standard is Sterling Silver or 14K gold.

Wide Bar Pendant

By | August 9th, 2016|Categories: Wave and Splash|0 Comments

This Wide Bar Pendant sits on an 18” silver chain.  It was inspired by ocean waves gently crashing on a beach and it makes me think of Summers on Cape Cod with my family.  Cast in sterling silver, this seemingly simple piece is highly detailed with a number of cut-outs and a folded, almost ribbon-like texture.

This necklace is solid but beautiful, modern yet organic.  It truly represents the strength that the ocean inspires and my hope is that it will inspire that same strength to manifest in you.  You will feel this necklace on you at all times, hopefully injecting that inspiration into you.

Wave and Splash Collection

By | August 3rd, 2016|Categories: Wave and Splash|0 Comments

Introducing the Wave and Splash collection!  Please join me in welcoming AGD’s signature collection!

For the last year I have worked tirelessly, committed to the vision and my dream for what I wanted this collection to be.  I wanted it to be bold and beautiful, elegant and avante garde.  I wanted it to make a statement and yet be timeless.  I had a lot of requirements…as I usually do.

The ocean is my favorite place in the whole world, hence my inspiration for this collection.  I’ve always felt deeply connected to it, and inspired by it.  The sand.  The sun.  The water.  The depths beneath its surface.  It’s about strength.  It’s about beauty. It’s about renewal and life and love.

As I created and iterated, I was focused on bringing my love of lines, organic shapes, and texture into a cohesive and unique collection.  I am so happy with the final collection and I hope you are too!

After all, my commitment isn’t just for me, it’s for YOU.  It’s so you can express who you are.  It’s so you have something bold and beautiful, elegant and avante garde.  It’s so you can make a statement and yet be timeless.  Jewelry brings me joy and I hope this line brings you joy too!
