HAVE BEEN TRAIPSING around in the insanely chic jewelry by Christina Jervey for the past few weeks, ever since it arrived, in pretty brown boxes tied in red ribbon, on Valentine's Day, and am particularly enamoured with a gold cuff, dramatic and a little rock 'n refined, and a tiny starfish pendant, utterly lovely and a little delicate, and reminds me of the Scottish coast . . .
Based in South Carolina, the designer's work is inspired by nature, with a love and appreciation for simplicity.
Christina Jervey took metalsmithing classes at Penland School of Crafts, followed by an apprenticeship with an accomplished goldsmith, and since, has manufactured and designed jewelry for several designers in the Charleston area.
After years of working in design & production, Christina launched her own line of jewelry, working in sterling silver, 14k gold, & 14k gold plate, creating all the jewelry herself, in her studio in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina.
Above, my favourites : the Francisco Cuff, Love Knot Ring, Small Starfish Pendant, and the Talon Pendant.
