Charleston Designer You Need to Know + WIN her earrings!
feat-jewels

Around the time of Charleston Fashion Week, several bold textured gold rings from Christina Jervey Jewelry first caught my eye in Ayoka Lucas’s white themed spring fashion spreadin Charleston Magazine.  Next, my friend Deirdre tagged me in a photo of Christina Jervey pyramid stud earrings on Instagram knowing how I have a thing for triangles. Since then, I’ve noticed Christina’s gold structural statement pieces on the fingers and wrists of Charleston’s fashion set including the likes of Charleston Shop Curator Andrea Serrano and Look Linger Love’s Chassity Evans.

Recently selected as a runner-up in Garden & Gun magazine’s“Made in the South” contest, Christina is quickly becoming a Southern designer to watch.

Starting out in jewelry design after a metal smithing class at Penland School of Crafts and an apprenticeship with a goldsmith, Christina shares that she began making jewelry more as a “side gig” in 2002 while she was studying to teach yoga.

Besides her own growing collection, Christina says that one thing she owns that she could never part with is her sapphire ring.

“I wear it everyday. The ring was given to me by my grandmother for my 21st birthday.  It was originally my great-grandfather’s lapel pin from the 1800’s. I love the history behind the ring and its simplicity. I sometimes debate about resetting it in a vertical position so I can stack it with other bands.”

ff: What is your signature design element?

“I use a lot of texture in my work. The majority of my jewelry is hand carved and then cast. This technique allows me to create an organic texture that is present throughout my collection. My work is also unique because I am involved in every step of the design and production process.”

 

ff: Your jewelry looks best worn with ________?

“Anything! I try to create versatile pieces that can be worn day to night.”

 

ff: Who do you think of when you are designing?

“I try to design for myself, and always make pieces that I would wear.”

ff: Which of your pieces has gotten the most “likes” on Facebook or Instagram?

“Fashion fades, only style remains.” – Coco Chanel
