Kathleen Lynagh Jewelry Designer

18 Sep

Jewelry Designer and Metalsmith
Kathleen Lynagh is the creative designer for Kathleen Lynagh Designs. Launched in May 1995, Kathleen began with a line of jewelry based on Mario Botta's architecture of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building for their Museum Store. Ms. Lynagh has since created several other lines. Most of her work is sculpted from solid wax blocks, cast in metal, then finished by hand.

Silver & Pearl Flower Rings
Hand-carved matte finished sterling silver ring set with a pink, black, or white freshwater pearl.

Kathleen's designs are fresh, unique, and sometimes whimsical. She has a special talent for designing florals, and having the components cast in metal allows her to create flower petals, twigs, and vines as they appear in nature. Her design ideas and sense of style are the basis of her contemporary jewelry.

Kathleen takes inspiration from architecture, a love of history, and simple forms. When designing a piece, she combines these elements with visual balance and a use of positive and negative space. Her work is often made in limited editions and frequently features the rich colors of 18k gold, sterling silver, pearls, and semiprecious gemstones.

Lynagh begins her design process with large free-form sketches. Once she has narrowed the focus for an individual design, she begins to sculpt it in wax. She uses bench tools and hand files to create the model. The individual components of the model are cast in precious metals, then assembled and finished by hand.

Kathleen's Pod Line is based on organic forms and seed pods found throughout the Bay area. The Radial Line is based on textures and smooth forms in metal, and the KL Line consists of limited edition pieces, which integrate sculptural forms into the designs.

Designer Bio
A native of Philadelphia, Kathleen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design from Beaver College. Her second job as a graphic designer brought was with the Hillier Group, a highly respected architectural firm, where she was promoted to Senior Graphic Designer and Associate. While working for the Hillier group, she was selected to participate in a unique program in Switzerland sponsored by the Yale School of Design, where she studied identity, color theory, sculpture, typography, and photography. Since that time she has devoted all of her attention to jewelry design.

Although Kathleen has created jewelry since she was very young, she had no formal training until she attended the Studio Art Center International (SACI) in Florence, Italy, in the fall of 1990. She then continued her studies at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA. After Moving to the San Francisco Bay area in the summer of 1991, she began to design and sell high-end custom made jewelry for Pave, a Bay area jewelry studio. Kathleen is presently based in the San Diego area.

Artist Statement

All through the ages jewelry has been an ever-present element in our lives. It is a timeless art form that is worn to adorn and commemorate life. It is my pleasure to create beautiful designs that will become part of people's lives and continue these traditions.

Slane & Slane Fine Jewelry

17 Sep

Born and raised in High Point, North Carolina, sisters Heath and Landon Slane came to the business of designing jewelry with the resources that might otherwise have put them through graduate school. After various career explorations and experiences in Santa Fe, Los Angeles, and New York, The Sisters came together in 1995 with the vision of creating sterling silver designer jewelry with the same quality and detail that historically had been dedicated only to gold and platinum.

sterling silver designer jewelry
The Bee Collection
Introduced in 1997, the Bee Collection is the most widely collected of the Slane & Slane designs. No ordinary bee, Slane & Slane's bee is inspired by the Napoleonic symbol of wisdom, strength, and nobility. The bee is considered to be the oldest emblem of the sovereigns of France and was adopted by Napoleon to visually link the new dynasty to the very origins of the country.

gold bracelet and earrings
The Ventus Collection
Ventus is Latin for wind, and seemed an appropriate name for the collection that draws inspiration from the base of the first modern wind generator built by Smith-Putnam in Rutland, Vermont circa 1941. Wind has been harnessed by man since ancient times for energy and propulsion and is a source of powerful intrigue to Heath and Landon.

rose gold jewelry
The Fenestra Collection
Awe-inspiring cathedral windows were the inspiration for the Fenestra Collection, which takes its name from the Latin word for window. Fenestra represents a subtle change in the design exploration of Slane & Slane, with the introduction of a more open and lighter forging of hand and metal. Diamonds, with their reflective qualities, have been added as accents, and as with each design, add a sparkling texture while mirroring the fluid lines of the finished piece.

Slane & Slane Fine Jewelry has appeared in many fashion magazines, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, InStyle, Elle, and Marie Claire. They display their jewelry several times each year at various trunk shows at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and other fine jewelry stores across the country.

The desire to own sterling silver jewelry that mirrored the same fine jewelry quality and craftsmanship of gold jewelry, led sisters Heath and Landon Slane to create what they could not find in the world of designer jewelry. Heath's background in fashion and photography and Landon's in film and television introduced an unusual combination of talents and insights to the world of jewelry design.

The sisters' diverse aesthetic sensibility and lifestyle influences – Heath lives in Los Angeles and Landon lives in New York – as well as their love of exotic travel, added to the formation of a distinctive signature style. Their design inspiration is rooted in classic architecture, mythology, a love of animals and spiritual influences. Twenty-five collections and various line extensions over eleven years of design have found appreciative audiences and devoted collectors throughout the United States and Canada.

It took Heath and Landon two years to find manufacturers who both understood their vision, and who had the expertise to realize it. Today, each design is manufactured and finished in the heart of the American jewelry manufacturing center, New York, where Heath and Landon can maintain control of the quality and the distinctive finishes. Using the lost wax casting method, each Slane & Slane design is cast and finished by hand. The resulting artisan look is one of the most distinguishing and coveted characteristics of each Slane & Slane design.

Numerous childhood influences shape their design sensibility, not the least of which was an utter fascination with their stylish and worldly grandmothers. Portraying restrained elegance with flourishes of a grand scale or splashes of vibrant color, the girls' eyes were trained on a style that never looked predictable, but always looked appropriate. It is this sensibility which defines their design aesthetic.

Distinctive finishes in both their sterling silver and 18 karat gold designs characterize collections which are at once familiar but new. Drawing inspiration from a myriad of sources, each symbolic to one or the other, the sisters have defined a look that seamlessly complements the wardrobes of women in the workplace, out for the evening, or at play on the weekend. Worn individually, mixed or matched, Slane & Slane's Collections are appreciated both for their understated elegance as well as for their playful exuberance.

Marcia Moran Designer Jewelry

15 Sep

Marcia Moran was born, raised, and educated in Brazil. Inspired by her father, she became a dentist in the early 90s, and started her own dental practice in Sao Paulo in 1994, but she always wanted to work with fashion and jewelry. In 2003, she moved to Los Angeles and decided to make her dream come true. She is now the owner and founder of Marcia Moran Jewelry Designs.

gold link bracelet
Marcia Moran Gold Plated Link Bracelet
Brushed 18k Gold Plated Linked Bracelet. Large, lightweight, interlocking chain measuring 7" long. Adjustable clasp and hook closure.

Moran's pieces are clever and kitschy, with nautical touches, lots of gold, and luscious gemstones. I can't tell if she makes her own jewelry now, or if she is still importing pieces from Brazil – more than likely a combination of the two. I love the soft sheen of the brushed gold and the simplicity of her designs. These pieces won't be out of style any time soon, and the 18k gold plating makes her jewelry affordable.
