Jewelry Design - Project Management - Product Development
From becoming the first JB Design Intern, working closely with Jenny to design upcoming collections to becoming a part time designer whilst finishing up university. I aided in the evolution of pieces Jenny Bird is known for and assisting in designing and rounding out upcoming collections.
Aside from the core and upcoming collections, I worked alongside Jenny on creating exclusive collections to be sold at Nordstorm, Stitchfix x JB, Rarebirds. In addition, project managed and designed several well regarded projects including CAFA nominated The Pin Project.
F A R + W I D E & UNHCR
In collaboration with UNCHR for Far + Wide, a pin made by refugee communities, displaced person or returnee sold through a Kickstarter Campaign raising over $106,479. Proceeds help "create employment and income for a displaced generation to craft their own futures".
Inspired by a "More Than A Refugee" , the kite is a symbol of flying high, new hope while still having a foundation from those supporting them.
