Andrea Barnett began her career as an interior designer, spending fifteen years at the helm of her own business.
While dealing with antique furniture and architecture she discovered a passion for vintage jewelry and fashion. On several trips abroad she collected Victorian lockets, charms, sporting medals and decorative chains and began designing necklaces incorporating those pieces. Her hobby became her second career in 1988 when she began replicating some of these antiques to develop a vintage inspired jewelry and belt line.
Currently she not only designs beautiful sterling pieces which she hand engraves with monograms, but she also uses her color and proportion knowledge from her first career to design stunning necklaces and bracelets, mixing freshwater pearls and gemstones, creating an estate jewelry appeal. She designs all her own findings still utilizing antique replicas as clasps, pendants and earring parts. It is a line that is aware of trends but adapts those trends to a classic style that makes the jewelry endure the test of time.

Avant Garde is a jewelry design company that holds an uncanny knack for capturing designs that combine class with cutting edge. The unique factor that sets this line apart is the tone of metal that is created by Artisans in France. The Silver or Brass tone yields a beautiful matte patina that is signature to the entire collection. The Boutique on Melrose Avenue displays the entire current collection for women and men. Avant Garde is known for bringing its unique and artistic French flair to the Melrose Avenue shopping experience, making Avant Garde one of the most respected names in upscale Jewelry Design. This family run business produces limited edition pieces mostly handmade in France.
The design team has fifteen years of experience in the industry. The artisan visions are first realized with a pewter base and then plated with Sterling or Brass. A clear varnish coating is added to preserve Avant Garde's trademark tone of metal. Some are further adorned with exquisite Swarovski Crystals. Every item is hypoallergenic. The line is progressive by nature with its omitting of nickel and lead for the environment. The results are stand alone works of art that are timeless.
We take pride in our wide selection of quality products. All products we offer are from trusted brands and designers.
Briana Erin, the Los Angeles based jewelry designer behind Tat2 Designs, has created a collection that is equal parts everyday and runway. Growing up in an artistic family, Erin was already selling her beaded necklaces to schoolmates at the age of nine. "My father is a creative director and sculptor, so I always grew up surrounded by a lot of culture and diversity, which definitely had a big influence on my aesthetic early on," says Erin. Erin, who received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Rhode Island School of Design, has each piece of jewelry in the collection individually hand cast —utilizing antique finishes that are both distinct and personal.
"I design for the woman who is hip and stylish but not trendy, someone who is sophisticated but young at heart," says Erin. Rather than interpreting the artist’s palette in terms of color, Erin prefers to interpret in terms of metal gradients. Tat2 Designs incorporates an array of vintage mixed metals such as pewter, brass, copper, gold and silver plate, as well as wood, glass, pearls, semi precious stones, leather and woven cord. Greek coins, a signature accent that can be seen throughout the Tat2 collection, lend an air of classic charm to the line. "I love the texture and shape of the ancient coins, they never go out of style," says Erin. Erin is also the creative force behind Briana Erin Jewelry, a line of contemporary fine jewelry that features sterling silver, 18K gold, diamonds, black diamonds and rubies.
Gypsy jewelry beckons "come hither" to fine jewelry collectors and art-lovers alike. The collection is handcrafted in Istanbul by skilled artisans using centuries-old techniques. The painstaking process and attention to detail renders each piece an extraordinary work of art. Beholding this jewelry for the first time, don't feel sheepish if you sense a sudden connection to the artists and traditions they honor with their work. (We witness mouths agape and stunned gasps all the time ! ) Istanbul has a decadent culture, rich with a history of harems and hamams; feats of faith and conquest. With such inspiration, it's no wonder Istanbul is also known for superior artistry. The collection always delivers a diverse array of designs, complementing either the sophisticated or sassy !
The Gypsy team is comprised of individuals who share a deep desire to break free from the beaten path. Rather than the overused phrase, "Stay the course", our motto at Gypsy is "Stray the Course " !!! We hope the Gypsy sanctuary inspires other kindredwanderers to dance to their own beat, follow their own hearts, and set their own trend lines to a place where fashion and passion unite.

Full-fledged fashionista and Francofile for life, Los Angles-based indie jewelry designer Kande Hall's new collection has generated quite a buzz.
"Back in 2009, as I was wandering the backstreets of Paris, I happened upon these crusty little medallions. Stylish and captivating, they were unlike anything I had ever seen," says Kande. "They were created during the 60's and given away by businesses to their best customers as tokens of appreciation. Various businesses did it, from boulangeries to banks bistros to vineyards and insurance agencies to food purveyors. I purchased a handful of what I hoped would make nice gifts for friends and family back home. After returning stateside, when I clasped an old medallion onto an opera length strand of pearls, something clicked...and that was the day French Kande was born."
Hand-crafted entirely in Lose Angles, French Kande uses rustic pearls, semi-precious stones and antiqued chain to create her signature style; chunky, unquestionably feminine and perfect woth a LBD or jeans and a tee. "When I think about the future of French Kande, I've come to realize it's not simply about making jewelry, it's really about how beautiful a woman feels when she's wearing it."
