Native New Yorker Pamela Love began making her jewelry in her Brooklyn apartment in 2006. She received her BFA in Experimental Film and Art Direction from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, and after graduation, worked as an art director and painting assistant to renowned painter Francesco Clemente. Her background in cinema and arts continues to inform her designs. Pamela's creations are deeply spiritual and intuitive. She is heavily influenced by astronomy, astrology, alchemy, botany, the American Southwest, and the architecture of her home, New York City. While her inspirations are steeped in American folklore, she also incorporates traditional tribal artisan patterns from North Africa, Mexican folk art, and medieval European iconography into her designs, resulting in her own immediately recognizable aura of modern urban mysticism. The line is committed to sustainability and localized production. All gemstones and semiprecious stones are ethically sourced and almost all metal used is recycled. The entire jewelry-making process, from design to sampling to full-scale production, is completed domestically with the majority of it done in-house at the Pamela Love Manhattan Studio. Pamela has collaborated with a wide range of acclaimed and emerging artists, designers, and retail brands, including Creatures of the Wind, Monique Lhuillier, Zadig & Voltaire, Zac Posen, Suno, J. Crew, and Topshop. Pamela is a member of the CFDA, and in 2013, won the CFDA Swarovski Award for Accessory Design.
