Frida-esqu style with ÁMLE Italian jewels
The moment when I walked passed the collection of Amlé it was love at first sight. The JCK jewelry convention held in the Monterey Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada was a mad house. There are thousands of jewelers and their decorated booths who showcase tons of exquisite accessory adornments. Your eyes start to hurt before you can even think about your feet and the miles you've walked in, up, and around that place. Like most hunters and gathers when there is an abundance you look for the best of the best. We (my mom and I) walked through every single isle. Each section represented a country. India, China, Thailand, the list goes on. Italy, historically has always been a trend setting nation. While roaming around Italy, we turned a corner, glanced left, walked a bit further then both turned around with big eyes.
AMLÉ's product and presentation was unlike anything we have seen that day! Reminiscent of Dolce and Gabbana's authentic italian prints and colors. I expressed these thoughts and they proceeded to tell me that Dolce & Gabbana may have copied some of AMLÉ's work! An hour and another visit later we sealed our relationship to make it last for good.
Back in San Francisco with jewels in hand my creative juices were flowing.
I called up my fashion photographer friend Anthony and a long time hair dressing friend Rae. With a vision in mind and feedback from the creative team we organized to photograph all earrings from Amlé. The idea we had was Italy meets San Francisco. Frida-esqu style amongst the colorful architecture of the city. After our 8 hour day and added help from Jquelz and Delara we couldn't be more happy about the final product! ⇓ [spacer height="50px"]
