Ariel Gordon: Jewelry Designer
10 ONLINE FINDS & LOCAL FAVES THAT ARIEL TREASURES
A NOTE FROM ELAINE: When I first saw Ariel Gordon's Jewelry, I had an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia that just warmed me up and got me all excited. The flat, delicate hearts reminded me of a necklace I had and loved as a kid (where is that necklace?)! As I continued to browse, I also continued to make chirpy little sounds of discovery. I PICKED FAVORITE AFTER FAVORITE. It was just uncanny how many personal, emotional ties I had to her line. The sweet monograms and knots....even the more graphic and geometric pieces felt both fresh and somehow familiar. So, there I stood, trying on this and that, taking my little trip down memory lane and enjoying the current, new point of view she's managed to infuse into her classically inspired pieces. But I don't simply love the designs.... I also love a good reinvention story....a follow your heart story.....especially one that ends in a success story! Ariel Gordon was not always a a jewelry designer. Like her mentor MAYA BRENNER, she followed her passion by way of another professional life (in Maya's Case, Social Work...in Ariel's, PR) and hasn't looked back. Judging by her healthy celebrity following, I don't think she'll have to.
