Q & A with Geri

January 14th, 2012 by admin

Why did you decide to become a jewelry designer?

Designing jewelry has given me an opportunity to open up my artistic side. I was able to
expose an innate talent that had been overlooked while pursuing my corporate business
career. I love the feeling of creating something from nothing—the ability to implement
ideas that become a tangible piece. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I’m working
with my hands, both in creating and designing jewelry, as well as with other designing
I do such as embroidery and cross-stitching. Seeing the final design of what had been
just an image in my mind gives me a sense of joy and fulfillment that is unmatched.

What are you most passionate about when it comes to designing?

I love to constantly challenge myself to come up with new creations, different styles and
unique designs.payday loans I am passionate about constantly evolving and growing as a designer.

What are your favorite materials to work with?

Swarovski crystals, especially for the Leonardo Collection are my favorite. I also enjoy
working with organic, unusual-looking stones. They present both a design challenge
and chance to create one-of-kind pieces.

Can you tell us about the themes that run through your jewelry?

In the Leonardo Collection you can see/feel an architectural look, a very structured line.
In some of my work with semiprecious stones, there is a sense of the classics mixed or
juxtaposed with a bit of edge and trendiness, allowing the wearer to express her sense
of individuality.

What is your favorite design(s), and is this your best seller?

The Reflection necklace from the Leonardo Collection is one of my favorites, and this
is definitely one of my best sellers. Another best seller is the Tin Cup, which I have
designed with Swarovski Crystals: black, clear, turquoise, etc. Both pieces are popular
piece because of their versatility—they easily transition from day to evening.

What do you have planned for future collections?

I will continue to enhance the Leonardo Collection and venture into a line of affordably
priced contemporary style rings.

What is your favorite place to travel to, and has it inspired your designs in any

The frenetic pace, energy and eclectic mix of people and fashion in New York City
invigorates me and is a catalyst and inspiration for my designs.

Who are your fashion icons?

Nina Garcia: Fashion Director for Marie Claire magazine and author of several fashion-
related books.
Cate Blanchett: She has her own sense of style and individuality—classic yet
Michael Kors: I love the fact he designs “wearable” clothes that are affordably priced.

If you could have a super power to help you with your jewelry designing, what
would it be?

I would love to have the ability to develop new gemstone colors and shades.

Spring High Point International Furniture Market

April  2011

This was an especially exciting show, full of anticipation.  Why you ask, because we took the leap and doubled the size of our exhibit.  The opportunity presented itself and so we said:  Let’s do it.  We were very fortunate; this was our best show yet.  Thanks to all our returning loyal clients and we welcomed many new clients.  In fact, early in the week we sold out of many of our one of kind designs and our ever popular: Leonardo Signature Collection.  Our customers loved some of the new designs added to the Collection.  Thank you for the positive feedback.

We always enjoy the Furniture Market; it is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with friends and fellow exhibitors.  It’s so much fun to see our returning clients and catch up.

We are busily working on many fun and interesting pieces for the Fall Show.  So if you can, come see us:  Suites at Market Square, M-8002, and High Point, North Carolina.

And we apologize for the late posting; we’ve been busy filling orders, working with new accounts, preparing for the next Market, working with our newly added East Coast Sales Reps, and the relaunch of our website:

Thank you.
