Trust the Process: Studio Work

TRUST THE PROCESS } It takes time to design a collection and then to actually create every single style in the collection. Here are before and after photos of our sweet scalloped Doily Stud Earrings. Fresh out from casting (counting them and re-counting them), each piece is clipped off, filed, polished nice and smooth, tumbled clean, and then sent off to get plated. These were 14k Gold Plated over brass. When we get them back from plating, each piece is hand painted with Enamel paint. After they are nice and dry, we pack them up with earring cards and into their individual poly seal bags.

....and Voilà! We pack them and they're on their way to our lovely buyers. Seriously a labor of love =)

There are 6 pretty colors to choose from, which colors are your favorite? You can find them at our new retailers listed here (under NEW!): www.brandypham.com/retailers & also on www.endless.com

Studio Work

We'll be doing a series of before & after photos of what we've been working on in our studio. Designing and creating a collection takes a very long time... Sketching can begin more than 6 months out until it's actually put into work. A piece goes from a sketch, to 3d sketch, wax or metal model, to an actual mold before it's casted, tumbled, polished, plated, and painted! Whew, that was a mouth full =P Stay tuned for more images & have a Happy Friday!!

Image from our Tumblr } Work in the Studio } The moons and the stars... I mean half moons and arrows =) Castings fresh out of plating! We have to wire every single casted piece together to plate and then clip every single piece out from the wires. Very tedious.

Packaging: Hold your jewels!

Hold your jewels! We're working on new packing for your precious jewels and baubles. We received our first samples and love it! Although it's not in the correct colors, we love the light-weight suede fabric. It feels so soft, velvety, and won't snag. The nautical silk rope is used as the draw strings to open and close up the pouch. We're so excited and can't wait for the final product! Every Brandy Pham purchase will come with a jewelry pouch to hold your jewels. Get excited =)

Made with love... Updated

I wrote the post below back in November and recently had a custom request for this sequin tank right before the Superbowl (she was from New Orleans and she wore it on the day of the Superbowl so it worked out perfectly! WHO DAT!). I made the newer custom tank with a BEAUTIFUL RIRI zipper -- this particular zipper cost $10!!! It was so pretty and I wish I photographed it before sending it off to it's new owner... but I didn't. =T Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy does RIRI zippers have to cost so much?!!! I know, I know... the teeth are so much more refined, much more delicate, the tape is so much prettier and vibrant, and I think it comes from Sweden or something. Ahhhh, I'm so in loveeeeeeeeeeee with RIRI zippers... Yups, I don't spend my money on clothes or shoes, this is what I spend my money on... It doesn't make any sense to my Husband. He shakes his head at me all the time and says, "no one will know the difference!" And in my defense I say, "I know the difference! And it's so prettyyyyyyyyyyy." Deep down inside, he completely understands me. Hehehe.

November 2009 -

Here's a tank I made by hand (and a sewing machine of course!) -- Gold Sequin/Mesh tank with an exposed zipper detail (clean finished & fully lined with 100% Silk Charmeuse).

This was worn by Juley of Swank Heights and she actually wore it backwards tucked into her shorts! I loved how she rocked it and made it look so cute!! =D A perfect example how versatile this tank is and can be worn in so many ways if you put your spin on it.
