patch-work

Post image for patch-work

patch nyc is a collaboration of two talented artists and designers – don carney and jon ross.  we here at fp instantly fell in love with their one-of-a-kind pieces and are excited to feature them as one of our favorite designers!  the patch nyc collection is vintage inspired, but also maintains a strong contemporary look.  to create their latest collection they experimented with a variety of metal finishing techniques to obtain a weathered quality that adds to their jewelry’s character by giving it a rough edge.  the collection features a collage of vintage pieces mixed with newer findings, using charms, stones and beads to create something special that is both modern and old, and undeniably unique.

check out the jewelry by patch on our website!

erickson beamon

Post image for erickson beamon

erickson beamon jewelry is founded and designed by karen erickson, eric erickson and vicki beamon. as the story is told, their jewelry business was born out of necessity. while working with a designer for their premiere apparel runway show they found no one would lend them jewelry to accessorize with, so they strung crystals and beads on suede and launched their first jewelry line. immediately the jewelry took off and was noticed for its fashion forward, edgy quality. their trademark are handcrafted beaded necklaces, which are meticulously assembled by hand using tiny crystals and semi-precious stones. the unique, handmade yet fashionable quality of the pieces has drawn the attention of some of the most well-known designers in the fashion world, who have had erickson beamon design custom pieces for their shows. they have one retail store located in london that is described as “a place where people can have their fantasy come to life in jewels.”
we are thrilled to have their designs here at free people! view our full selection of erickson beamon here.

recycled scarves

our direct operations coordinator makes these amazing one-of-a-kind scarves out of loops of recycled fabric that she gets from old clothing. i love the color combinations that she comes up with! i also love that the scarves can be worn in a couple of different ways, as seen in the photos below. these would be such a cool handmade gift for friends and family as winter approaches!

bora bora

Post image for bora bora

as part of our online holiday boutique we are featuring eight amazing jewelry artists who we love here at free people, and i thought you might like to know their stories. we’ll start with bora…

we have worked with bora for years, and we love his unique jewelry and his ability to think outside of the box. born in turkey, bora’s immersion in mediterranean culture is one of the many things that inspires the jewelry he makes today. his dream was to be a musician, but his creativity and imagination led him towards jewelry design. with the help of his engineering background, he is able to carefully craft designs with close attention to detail and dimensions. his favorite material to “play” with is copper because he appreciates the historic quality of the metal. the best thing about his pieces is that they’re an abstract and interesting addition to any look.
check out our selection of jewelery by bora here.
