I am not a big fan of jewelry, but when I do wear some jewelry, I love strong and original pieces, even better if it is vintage and has history.
That’s why I had a huge crush, in Los Angeles, for Felicia Willow creations. Her concept seduced me: she fabricates by hand one of a kind, limited run jewelry with reclaimed vintage trinkets and antique treasures.
Felicia, who is a young designer, started creating jewelry 11 years ago on the East Coast.
She has always been inspired by things that tell a story, and this is how she had the idea of ferreting out vintage and antique pieces and use it in her creations.
For instance, she showed me an antique roman military decoration that she planned to use in a necklace, or miniature magnifying glass used as pendant as seen on the pic above.
Her studio in Los Angeles is overflowing with special, wonderful and unique finds.
Felicia also works with gemstones and crystal, she uses them in an almost raw and uncut state, The final result is gorgeous, pure and strong. She is also a master with leather, which she cuts in original pendants, or even designs amazing hand beaded leather wish pouches.
For those who want a 100% unique piece, Felicia offers a made-to-order “Wish Pouches” customization service, on appointment in her studio in Los Angeles. Here are examples of amazing made-to-measure pouches: the customer chooses shape, leather color, cord or chain, embellishments…
The surprising bonus of the designer :”ORION WILLOW ENERGY GARDENS”, living succulent arrangements that incorporate Healing Crystals & Other Natural Items, such as Coral, each of which possess different energetic & healing properties.
Good news, she ships worldwide!
