Curated Treasury: "Hard to ignore ..."

"It's in my DNA ... this love of color and texture ... and the magic is in the details."
~ Pam Robinson - CoolJewelryDesign

Today's treasury is curated by Pam Robinson, from the Etsy shop CoolJewelryDesign, located in North Atlanta, GA.

Through CoolJewelryDesign, Pam Robinson invites you into her, "[C]ool world of bohemian beaded jewelry ... modern beaded jewelry ... wire wrapped and often organic natural stone jewelry." CoolJewelryDesign features one of a kind, wearable art for "independent thinkers", and designs to fit any lifestyle.

CoolJewelryDesign's goal, as Pam states it, is,

"To be the creator/designer of one of a kind (OOAK) jewelry for you. 98% of my jewelry will fall into that category. No outsourcing of any kind.

"To offer a wide range of products, styles, and prices that will appeal to an audience of women who love a boho/mod look, maybe romantic, simple, etc., AND you will hear me speak of 'crossover' in many design descriptions ... and why? Because one piece of jewelry can overlap into more than one style."

Pam describes herself as a, "Jersey girl who transferred to North Atlanta with a corporate job in 1990 ... looking back (as we tend to do) , leaving a house on the water ... well, no do-overs. Absent minded animal lover who enjoys great food and wine...and jewelry!"

"I was artistic as a child, drawing, painting, designing ... and then as all women do ... morphed into this LOVER of jewelry (as opposed to shoes or handbags, for example). And I know my grandmother, who was a zany creative woman, is at the heart of this.

"When I moved from NJ <sigh> to Atlanta, somehow I discovered Etsy (years ago) ... and mused 'why can't ... I this?' <<and I thought I was so original--making jewelry--as though so few people did that. Oh my gosh, just the reverse.

"So I taught myself and evolved over time, with an end result of absolutely adoring COLOR and texture. Always on the bohemian side, independent, owning my own look, etc., I reach out to kindred souls who can appreciate being a bit different. This is a passion and I am completely grateful to have found this path later in life."

Here is just a small sampling of items you will find when you visit Pam at CoolJewelryDesign.
