HELLO, I'M PAMELA

I have always been a collector at heart, a lover of antique jewels, decorative arts, architectural detail (I was once an interior designer). Even more, I’ve always craved talismans, small beautiful pieces of light to carry with me as a kind of luxurious comfort. I think of my designs as an iconography of the soul; they are inspired by all of these shaping influences but also a feeling of being alive. They’re intended to endure beyond trend and fashion, to be pieces that celebrate moments big and small and that we reach for (or more likely just keep on) day after day.

THE TALISMAN

A talisman is defined as an object that can be carried with us, meant to protect or heal, imbued with a sense of history, and maybe even a little magic.

As a designer, I also feel that a talisman should be a personal comfort to wear for a sense of warmth and belonging. A touchstone of enduring strength, intended to become a part of you and carry you for years to come.

About Our Makers

I feel so very fortunate to work with my small team of exacting jewelers. Located in Rhode Island, where there is a 200 year heritage of jewelry making, they’ve honed their craft over many decades and they take great care in the casting, refining and skillful application of my signature sandblast finish on each 18 karat gold jewel. Each time a piece is realized, it feels monumental, and I think that’s right. I want these to be small talismans that remind you of big things.

“My vision is to design primarily in gold and diamonds, over time building out a tapestry of talismans of varied shapes, motifs and textures, so they can be mixed and matched for a layering effect that is uniquely personal to the wearer. By maintaining a limited palette of rich 18K with a touch of diamond sparkle, a quality of ease, elegance and versatility is maintained, for pieces that can be relied upon now and for years to come.”

A LOVE OF PROCESS

I love what I do. There is nothing more gratifying than nurturing a concept, an inspiration for a piece of jewelry through the stages of sketching, design, thoughtful tweaking, casting and finishing. With much love, a finished jewel emerges and it is oh so gratifying. A talisman is born, a keepsake to guide the future wearer now and always. And that, my friends, is the very best part of my work.
