Your Company is Called Meridian Avenue,mother of replica hermes Can you tell us where it came from?

When naming my company,replica bvlgari jewellery I couldn’t think of a better name to represent my brand as it perfectly encapsulated the Miami Beach girl that I am.

Have you always lived in Miami Beach and designed in Miami? How do you think that has influenced your work?

Lauren Turchin Jewelry

I was born in Miami,replica hermes birkin price grew up here,replica bulgari b zero and even went to college at the U. I guess you can say I really like this place. Living in Miami has influenced my work by being surrounded by constant change and diversity. I come up with ideas on a daily basis just by being exposed to my everyday surroundings.

When you design pieces are you designing for yourself or for a target customer and who is that customer?

I first design for myself. If I won’t wear it,replica cartier declaration then I am not going to make it. I only feel comfortable producing jewelry that I personally would wear and from there I create a line.

What new jewelry trends do you see coming in the near future?

Even though I am a gold fanatic, I can see silver making a comeback.

What designers do you love or think have inspired your work?

I love the work of Delfina Delettrez and Polly Wales. Eventually I would like to go in the direction of fine jewelry one day, and these two great designers are inspiring me to want to do so.

Lastly if you were not a jewelry designer what do you think you would be doing?

I most probably would be on the show American Pickers, since I am a pro at bargain shopping and finding treasures.

Our Gold & Gray Interview One on One–cartier santos replica

Gold & Gray Jewelry Collection

Our Featured Designer Of The Month Gold & Gray Interview

This month we have an interview with our featured designer of the month Gold & Gray.  Gold & Gray is based out of LA and owned by an amazing emerging jewelry designer Lily Gray.  The line is both bohemian but sophisticated and differs from what we are seeing so much of these days. 

Lily What Got You Into Jewelry And Ultimately Gold & Gray?

I really have always loved jewelry and started designing things for my friends and family.  I didn’t actually think that I could make it a full time business until I started selling to local boutiques and realized it was a possibility.  At that point I quit my job and started working on Gold & Gray full time.  I never looked back.

You Mentioned You Sold To Local Boutiques? How Much Has LA Influenced You?

I love LA.  Its where I grew up and has a large part to do with who I am.  I love the beach and the lifestyle in LA.  I love spending time outside and visiting local museums.  Its always sunny here and I have a lot of childhood memories of going to the beach here.

Did You Have Formal Training In Jewelry Design Or Go To School For Jewelry?

No actually I majored in Communication Studies in college but always had a passion for jewelry design.  I did take some beading classes and interned for a couple of jewelry designers.

What Do You Find Is Your Biggest Challenge With Being a Jewelry Designer?

I think my biggest challenge is finding the right balance between work and personal time.  It’s not always so easy to just “turn it off” and that’s been tough for me.  I’m still trying to figure out the best way to handle this. I do find organizing things whether its inventory or my personal things I find it calming.

What’s Your Favorite Gold & Gray Piece?

bright tassel bracelets

I go through phases with my jewelry and tend to change my favorites.  I will wear a necklace or bracelets for a month straight and then switch it up.  I never leave home without either bracelets or a necklace.  Right now I love wire wrapped turquoise necklace and always my beaded tassel bracelets.  I can’t make them fast enough.    

What’s Been The Most Rewarding Thing So Far About Starting Your Own Line?

It’s hard to say one thing.  I love seeing other people enjoying my jewelry and seeing how they wear it.  Its been really rewarding also to see all of my hard work paying off.  Working for yourself is not always the easiest but has been really great.

Lily we thank you for your time and wish you nothing but continued success with Gold & Gray. To browse through the whole Gold & Gray Collection click here.
