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.
