Super stoked I finally got to hang these beauties! New wall art in the dining room. Big ups to @chimejewelry for the gorgeous skeleton cymbal, @georgiemerks for the china, and my parents for the hi-hats!
Throughout 2017, we celebrated the members of the 27 Club. Each month, we researched one musician and designed and created a piece reflecting the artist’s legacy. To be honest, this was a challenging endeavor for us. The month typically started out on a high note where we immersed ourselves in the artist's music. With the volume up, we danced and sang in the kitchen while cooking dinner. We watched documentaries and interviews to learn about each artist’s life story. For the jewelry piece, we'd throw out possible design ideas, but allow for new ideas to flow in. Mid-month would arrive and we'd find ourselves in a creative frenzy, sketching out designs that just weren't jiving and always doubtful that we'd be able to pull through by our deadline to come up with the perfect design. At this point in the month, we'd lament the whole dumb project and wonder why we even started it in the first place.
Then a simple idea would strike that would seem so obvious and inspire a new design direction. With days to spare, we'd finish up the design, create a prototype and move onto designing the webpage. Often times, the writing of the biography would happen in the middle of the night prior to the release of the piece. Sometimes we hit our deadline. Other times we missed it. The process was stressful, but in the end, pushed us beyond our comfort zone to create 10 pieces that we feel capture the essence of each artist and time period. Each one unique, but fitting into a highly connected body of work.
We still have one more artist to recognize and we’ve decided to take our time with the design and release it sometime this year. In the meantime, if you have some time to spare on a quiet afternoon, go back and take a look through the CHIME 27 pages of our website to learn about the artists and the inspiration behind their signature CHIME designs. It’s a body of work that we’re very proud of, and taught us so much about art, music, culture, and how they all have shaped the world we live in.
Thank you for all your continued support.
My beautiful grandma turned 96 yesterday. Strong, wise and playful - She’s such an inspiration! I’m so grateful my daughter gets to embrace her vibrant spirit. So looking forward to celebrating her this weekend. ❤️

Every now and then, I'm approached by a family who lost a loved one (who was a drummer). I'm asked to take their family member's drum cymbals and create jewelry for the family. This holiday season, I was honored to work with Chris Clifford's gorgeous and special Zildjian cymbals. I created ornaments for the family, necklaces for his sisters and the cymbal skeletons went to his parents and wife. I am continually honored to participate in projects like this one where I get to create mementos for people to cherish forever. Chris Clifford passed away unexpectedly, which was undoubtedly difficult for his loved ones. I kept one of his ornaments for my Christmas tree so each year, I can honor Chris' spirit and remember to hold my loved ones tight. I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday.🎄
2018, we're coming for ya! ☀️

These new CHIME earrings need a name. YOU NAME THEM, YOU GET THEM. (Please note: Name should be somewhat music/sound related.) #goodluck #thenamegame #drumcymbaljewelry
