JP x RAVEN ROXANNE FALLING TULIPS are here!

JP x RAVEN ROXANNE FALLING TULIPS are here!

It has been such fun collaborating with Raven Roxanne on the JP x RAVEN ROXANNE FALLING TULIP Collection. Raven and I have been friends for years and studio mates at our last spot. She is such a light and and an all around lovely human. As creatives and entrepreneurs, we wanted to work together to create a collection of wearable pieces with her work with tulips in mind.  I am beyond excited to announce the launch these pieces today!  Read more about the collaboration below.

Raven Roxanne first met jewelry designer Jane Pope nearly a decade ago, when Raven’s husband worked with Jane to create her engagement ring. Years later, the two became studio mates at Slate Studios in Charleston, South Carolina, where they continued to admire and find inspiration in one another’s work. With practices rooted in modernism, both artists are drawn to playfulness and Old World softness, their styles complementing each other naturally.
Over time, Raven and Jane’s relationship has evolved into one of mutual respect and deep friendship. Ever supportive in the studio, the artists have also anchored each other through life’s shifting stages. When Raven returned to the studio after the birth of her first child, she found a familiar confidant in Jane, who could bring wisdom, advice and a new perspective to motherhood. This new chapter in life brought the two even closer and with it a new spark of inspiration.
Conceived early in Raven’s motherhood, Falling Tulips breathed new life into the artists’ studios. Marrying Raven’s tulip motif—a theme that appears often in her paintings—with Jane’s unique wax molding and gold casting process, the collaboration felt organic from the start. With only three pairs of earrings and three necklaces, the collection captures tulips not at their most pristine, but at varying stages of growth and imperfection. Together, the pieces represent the beauty of evolution, and the value of growing together—not unlike the artists’ relationship itself.

Jane Styles: Rings

Jane Styles: Rings

Ahhhhh ring styling.  I love it.   
People always ask would I do this or do that, and the answer is yes!  I do it all.  I love experimenting with stacking rings.  

Some of my tried and true suggestions:

Mix shapes/lines - eg. Try one with straight sides, rounded, curved all worn together.  

Switch the order - Sometimes switching the order of the bands will make them look completely different.

Mix thick and thin - The thin flat bands and twig rings have an amazing ability to give depth to a stack.  It's amazing what a little texture will add to a stack.

Add a stack topper - Most people think that you should bookend rings so that there are two matching bands on either side of your main event ring.  This can be lovely, but I also love two different bands on one side (or three) with a zinger on top.  There is something incredibly balanced in the imbalance.

Don't be afraid to try things you wouldn't think are you.  You just may surprise yourself.

Jane Styles: Necklace

Jane Styles: Necklace

You may have noticed that I rarely post necklace shots on myself while rings are easy peasy. Necklaces are so tricky to get a candid studio shots. Based on instagram engagement, it doesn't seem like you love the model shots as much as the candid shots.  The truth is that they are necessary to show styling tips for necklaces.

I wouldn't advise styling too many necklaces on our smallest chain. While it is durable, delicate style chains tend to tangle and can be a mess when piled on.  I do love a mix of a couple of chains.  A longer heavier chain with a shorter delicate chain is a staple for me.  I love layering my kiddos fingerprint necklace with a shorter necklace.  

I also adore the new heavier chains with a diamond zinger or gold staple worn together. It's a nice way to give some extra volume to to your favorite simple necklace. 

Necklace styling for me is on the subtle side, but if you love to pile chains on, the more the merrier.

Jane Styles: Earrings

Jane Styles: Earrings

I love being able to show how I would style the jewelry in natural light and every day clothes. Earrings are super difficult to snap in the studio. To be presentable enough to photograph means I have to have showered and done my hair and make up in some fashion, which is an added pressure.  So, I thought I would take to the blog to go in depth a little more about styling in my new series Jane Styles.

I love mixing and matching earrings. I have 5 piercings on my left ear and 3 on my right.  You would think I could wear all of my faves at once, but it's all a matter of balance.  I pierced a few of my own holes in my youth, so the spacing isn't perfect either.  Cest la vie.  Work with what you have and choose earrings accordingly.

I have found that a balance of bars, studs, drops, etc works best for me.

fave drops: bar with half moon diamond drops + drop earrings

bars:  triplicate + slate bar studs + tubes

diamond studs:  any diamond studs add dimension to the stack.  try to mix the shapes for balance and depth.

The art of stacking involves a mixture of the above styles.  Here are a few examples of my fave combinations:

 

 

I love a drop mixed in for some impact.

 Looking for a pop of color? These new citrine cocktail studs are a great neutral color while the spinel, sapphire, and tourmaline studs as well as these other new colored studs add more of a pop.

 

 

Have a single hole?  No worries.  We's got you covered too.

hoops + plate studs + NEW 5mm bezel set diamond studs + covey studs are all great everyday earrings.

antiparos studs offer more coverage, while still being sleek.

climbers give the illusion of more going on without committing to the multiple holes In your lobes.

 

 

Looking for a statement maker:

frond + triad + diamond disc + constellation studs

 

Hope this helps you with your next ear bedazzlement.  Do you like these styling tips? Do give feedback.

New Collection: PATTERNED BANDS

New Collection: PATTERNED BANDS

I am super excited to announce the launch of my latest collection: Jane Pope PATTERNED BANDS.  I pulled inspiration from architecture, interiors, and nature.  Focusing on the details and intricacies allowed me to take a closer look at each source of inspiration.  I have always found the detail of hand carved antique etched bands to be so special and delicate.  I wanted to revisit the idea with a modern sensibility.  With love and wear, these etched bands will be made even more beautiful.

BIG NEWS: CONSCIOUS CASTING

BIG NEWS:  CONSCIOUS CASTING

On 9.27.18, I sent myself the below email.  I have been working toward this goal ever since.  After much frustration with production over the years, I wanted to bring it to Charleston. First to service Jane Pope, but to also offer a much-needed source for independent jewelry designers.

I am very proud to announce that this dream has become a reality.  Conscious Casting is a woman-owned and women-run full service, ethical and eco-conscious fine jewelry manufacturing business.  CC is a business born out of a hole in the jewelry manufacturing market for quality production with strong communication and an awareness of the impact on the environment.

We are here for independent designers looking for a better solution to their production needs.  We want our customers to find that working with us has made their life easier, production more streamlined, and increased their sales.

Our goal is not only to serve Jane  Pope production, but to offer Independent designers like myself who have had issues with production and are looking for a better solution. Conscious is a full service manufacturing outlet driven by professionalism, communication, and attention to detail and quality.

I posted the job opening online before the equipment had even been delivered and interviewed several capable women, choosing Anita and her 20 years of experience in the jewelry business.  Anita is enthusiastic to try new things and has been able to emulate the Jane Pope style.  I am excited to watch her grow with CC.

Julia Rose is my right hand at Jane Pope, but has taken on the extra task of working logistics for CC, knowing that it would be a game changer for our customer service experience at JP.

Upon filling out our brand questionnaire for our logo development, it was very clear that this step was a natural one.  Having a clear vision and brand message lead to the creation of the beautiful brand package by SDSC produced is exactly what I hoped for.

This has been in the works for a year, but 10 years in the making.   I have been very thoughtful of every aspect, not rushing or forcing things.  I have chosen staff, equipment, location and set up with great attention to detail.  Every decision has been CONSCIOUS and for this I feel grateful and confident in this step.

Like with everything, we want to minimize the impact on the environment and our surroundings.

Our team is excited to get to work helping fill a void in designer's production needs.

Website Launching soon!

Perfecting the FINGERPRINT

Perfecting the FINGERPRINT

The custom FINGERPRINT necklaces are quickly becoming a fan favorite.  Each one is so sweet and shows the personality of each child... I mean, no two are alike.  How cool and special are they.  I wanted to capture a couple of cuties in the process so I reached out to two people I knew wanted to get their little nuggets' fingerprints captured. 

First I contacted my friend Gray Benko.  I knew she wanted a slightly more delicate version of the traditional fingerprints I had done before.  Although, she deferred to me in the end for the perfect size, I decided to try to modify hers some to make them as thin and little as possible without losing any of the special quality.  I am BURSTING to see what Gray thinks of them.  They are so cute and her precious kiddos, Farris and Charlie are such characters and Gray incredibly lovely and an awesome mom.

The second person I wanted to send a test kit to was Marina Squerciati from Chicago PD. She had contacted us about a fingerprint necklace for her little girl.  Marina is such a beauty and so kind and her daughter is little, so we thought it was a perfect test client.  Her fingerprints turned out so cute and Marina sent some precious videos and pics of them capturing it with out kit.

Each kit comes with easy instructions for capturing each child's fingerprint.  The imprints don't have to be perfect.  That is often what makes them so special.  A couple of times one has looked nothing like the other it is paired with, and I have asked the parents if they want me to alter them to make the necklace more uniform.  It is typically indicative of the child's personality and they want to leave it just as it is... which I love.   These necklaces are so much fun, and getting them to clients makes me super happy.

Hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day!

MAKING STRIDES

MAKING STRIDES

I am super excited to show you our new and improved shipping boxes.  I never thought I would be so excited about cardboard, but this cardboard makes my heart sing.  I am not sure I have gotten into it much here, but I am a big fan of the earth.  Crazy, I know, but I love her and all that she does for us.  I recycle and compost at home. I make my children use recyclable containers, even though they say that it embarrasses them at times that I re-use jars.  Ha!!  I felt like I was making the appropriate steps at home, but I wanted to make some changes at work as well.  We started using a casting company this year that uses all recycled gold, which was huge.  I also want to do my part with the shipping materials that go out of my studio each day.  As I began to research eco-friendly shipping materials, I found EcoEnclose.  They are a compostable, biodegradable, sustainable packaging  business.  Jackpot!  I went with my simple circle logo for the outside of the package.  I love the way it looks and love the shape and size of the box.  We have quite a bit of packaging, notecards and business cards that we will work on once our current stock runs out.  Baby steps?   Living close to the ocean has reaffirmed my desire to  do my little part to reduce waste, reuse, recycle, compost, and remain conscious of our impact on the earth.
