Beauty With A Bang

Sharing a collective passion for antique jewelry, bohemian trade beads, intricate African seed bead work, and the various textures found in nature, mother-daughter team Cindy and Avril Joffe create highly textural pieces of jewelry that skillfully draw from these disparate influences. Out of their historic loft in Atlanta, Georgia, the artists employ ancient metalsmithing and beading techniques to create vibrant pieces that sing with their signature style and unique aesthetic.

In this necklace, sterling silver is hammered into a rustic yet lustrous oval pendant. Two, tiny holes pricked atop the drop are threaded with a gold-fill rope chain and a silver brass chain punctuated with shimmering clusters of gold pyrite beads. Handcrafted in Atlanta, Georgia.

Mother-daughter founders, Avril & Cindy, combine their passion for found objects steeped in history, design, and nature. Together they create jewelry with a reverence to years of world travel and a philosophy built on the beauty of handmade craftsmanship. Their jewelry incorporates a distinct blend of gemstones, diamonds, antiqued metals, intricate chains, rare beads and hand carved pieces.

Over the years, Avril, a family business owner and Cindy, a trademark lawyer, took time away from their careers to nurture their creativity at the family cabin nestled high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Their first collection was inspired by a worldly mix of antique fine jewelry, bohemian trade beads, intricate African seed bead work, the subtle textures of nature, and an affinity for layering textiles, chains, and leather. It was the artisanal blend of these elements that lay the foundation for what is now their signature look.

Avril and Cindy's jewelry is handcrafted in their historic loft studio in Atlanta, Georgia. Both continue to employ ancient metalsmithing and beading techniques, while always keeping an eye toward the flair of the season. Each piece reflects a level of artistry and an adherence to the company's heritage that keeps their devoted clientele collecting pieces year after year.
