Pamela Love Trunk Show at Reformation LES

This Saturday, 12/3 from 3-6 PM, Check out artist/jeweler/designer Pamela Love's Trunk Show at the LES REFORMATION, 156 Ludlow.

New York native Pamela Love received her BFA from New York University Tisch School of the Arts, majoring in film production with a concentration in art and public policy. After graduating, Love applied her studies and creativity as an artist’s assistant and as an art director and stylist for photo shoots, music videos, and films. Throughout these projects, Love often had difficulty finding jewelry that suited her taste. As a result, in 2006, she began making her own pieces, working primarily out of the basement of her own Brooklyn apartment.

It wasn’t long before her innovative, distinctive creations caught the attention of trendsetters worldwide, and her newfound passion became a full-time business. Now working from a studio on 29th Street in New York, Love works with an in-house team who manage all production, public relations, online, and retail sales.

Pamela Love draws her inspiration from many of her favorite artists, including Joseph Cornell, Lee Bontecou, Hieronymous Bosch, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Francesco Clemente. Her creativity is further fueled by her passion for nature and science, as well as astronomy, astrology, religion, magic and folk jewelry. Her deep connection to the American Southwest also continues to be a driving inspiration behind her artistry and craft. Passionate about both her design and practice, she continues to experiment with unique and exotic materials, while exploring new techniques to make her challenging and extravagant designs a reality. Love defies traditional categories of fine or costume jewelry through the use of materials ranging from brass and leather to 14-karat gold and precious stones. Her collections, like Love herself, blend mystery with romance, reminiscent of stories both whimsical and dark.

Beyond the success of her own individual line, Pamela Love has collaborated with designers such as Marchesa, Twenty8Twelve, Yigal Azrouel, Frank Tell, and Zac Posen for their runway shows and presentations. She worked with Opening Ceremony and Spike Jonze to create a jewelry line inspired by his film Where The Wild Things Are, and has produced custom jewelry for HBO's hit TV show, True Blood. In an effort to become more eco-friendly, Love has worked with designer Rogan Gregory to create the sustainable jewelry line Rogan vs. Love.
