Less than a week left! Support my goal to hire my 1st employee and take my next collection to NY Fashion Week 2014! THANK YOU!
Growing up in Portland, Oregon, my father a craftsman and mother an artist, my understanding of design and construction was strongly encouraged. Working next to my father in his woodshop honed my love for tools, while sketching with my mother developed my visual aesthetic. Completely self-taught, I personally craft each piece of jewelry by hand in my Brooklyn studio with a dedication to quality and from materials sourced entirely within the United States.
At the core of my brand's philosophy is a desire to stimulate a visual and sensational experience in those exposed to my jewelry that represents my sense of New York City and its cutting-edge lifestyle. Committed to creating a sustainable product, each piece of my heirloom quality jewelry is made with attention to detail and consciousness towards the environment. Aiming to create intrigue and interaction with my clientele, I explore current culture to cultivate an evolving understanding of what women want their jewelry to express. My desired results are captivating pieces that reflect the character of each Jené DeSpain patron, as she wears my jewelry to express her own high-powered statement.
Fashion Week is a rare opportunity to truly evoke influence in fashion. Within the fleeting minutes of a presentation is the chance to make a statement so substantial that style is potentially forever altered. For me, NYFW offers a platform to share my work with the industry’s most powerful audience of style makers on a stage that has historically been a core element to the remarkable success achieved by almost all of America’s celebrated designers.
Risks and challenges
As every piece is created by myself in my Brooklyn studio, I enjoy ensuring quality in my work, a luxury I believe is passed on to each patron of Jené DeSpain jewelry. While this can possibly lead to logistical challenges, I have prepared my material inventory and my studio to ensure completing each one of your rewards. With you as my highest priority, I am looking forward to burning the midnight oil to get your rewards to you on time.
*Especially for those who are selecting holiday gifts: I am excited about creating your special items and sending them out so they can be a part of your holiday celebrations.
Thank you so much for your support! I truly couldn't achieve this goal without you.
