In case you’re not yet in the know, there is a new craze sweeping the Internet called Pinterest. In their own words, Pinterest “lets you organize all the beautiful things you find on the web.” Each account consists of a set of virtual pin boards, arranged into categories of your choice, onto which you paste images. These boards can be accessed by anyone interested, and similarly you are able to browse those created by others. Hours can happily slide by as you pin your perfect décor, create details of an event or browse the boards of those that share your interests.
Designers were among the first to find a use for this new phenomenon and jewelry designers were no exception. What better way to convey the inspiration behind their collections, display their mood boards and throw in a little self promotion along the way, although this is openly discouraged. We follow the pins of designers Ruth Bridges and K0kkino. It’s like looking inside the design studios with the hopes to glean a little more behind what moves them.
We also love checking out the pin boards of our favorite stylists. We love the blog posts by Dree Harper of Create That Style, and checking out her pins feels like being in the editing room. Her jewelry pins are also very unique and unusual.
Shreve, Crump and Low is a must follow for jewelry lovers. Their pins range from the educational, to the go to pins for gift inspirations and who’s who in Boston! Jewelry in Art is also a favorite board, very clever!
