THIS WEEK’S AT THE SHOPS features NYC-based Shawn Warren Jewelry. Was recently introduce to the label and immediately fell for the designer’s clean lines and rock ‘n refined aesthetic. My lucky Horseshoe Necklace, made of sliced grey diamonds and the prettiest glittery rose gold chain, has quickly become a new favourite and has never left my neck since the day it arrived. The designs, inspired by Shawn’s mother, have that perfect mix, whether rough diamonds and rose gold, or sliced diamonds and white gold, that work just as well with organza cocktail dresses as with blue jeans . . .

About Shawn Warren Jewelry

Shawn Warren Jewelry was launched in 2003 in New York City, bringing a perfect contrast of uptown elegance with downtown edge in a refined framework of 18 karat gold in striking, yet wearable pieces.

The designer cites her mother, a top model in the ‘50s and ‘60s, as muse, infusing her poise and strong sense of individual style into each design.

To create her designs, Shawn hand-selects each stone, finding inspiration in its color and cut. Natural materials like rough diamonds are mixed with vibrant sapphires to create a collage of colors and textures. The designer also creates one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces for those who seek something special and rare.

“I always ask myself if I can wear something with jeans or if I can layer it with other pieces that I have.” –Shawn Warren

“It all started with colored pencils. I was never without them as a child, often falling asleep while drawing. I soon discovered pastels, pipe cleaners, and beads – always drawn to the range of color of each new medium. My love of the visual arts continued in college, where I studied Art History. My career path took me away from this passion for many years. I was an advertising executive and a psychotherapist until my love of design prevailed and I started my jewelry business, now almost 15 years ago. With no formal training, I immersed myself in the world of gems, absorbing every detail, and learning everything I could from many mentors along the way. What I ultimately found is that when you love what you do, the learning comes naturally. Now, I could swear I dream in jewelry. It’s like a second language for me, or it’s own world. And there’s no stopping it – I am designing almost all of the time.” —Shawn Warren

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

Stephen Hawking once said, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change” and seeing as we’re on the brink of a massive change, these words will certainly be put to the test. Things have felt in a state of flux for the past few weeks now and we’re looking forward, at the end of all of this, to a few moments of calm, for a little time away, but mostly, for fresh starts and new beginnings… One thing is for certain, now more than ever, we know that nothing can happen to us as long as we’re together. This love is forever.
