In the Galleries

August 27, 2018

The current offerings in the galleries are ruminations on the structures of our natural world. In L.A., Todd Ryan White employs lush, electric color to render caverns, frondescent landscapes, and the human form.

Last week some of our crew traveled to NYC for Melee, the fine jewelry trade show founded by our own Lauren Wolf and Rebecca Overmann.

We can’t wait to return in February!

by Alexis Adams
Welcome to the third installment of our new blog feature, My Jewelry Box, where we chat with some of our favorite (and most stylish!) customers about their personal collections, their relationship to their jewelry, and their thoughts on adornment and the act of collecting. This month we feature Los Angeles-based Alison Bennett, a television + film writer and the driving force behind some of the funniest shows on TV, such as “You’re the Worst,” and “LA to Vegas.” Alison cut her comedy teeth at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York, but she originally hails from central Pennsylvania where her father owns antique malls, giving her lots of early exposure to the art of...
