Designer Spotlight: Emerson Ryder

Emerson Ryder is the new gorgeous jewelry line created by the beautiful and talented Alana Sands! Her handcrafted designs have been seen on the wrists of Hollywood’s elite including Minka Kelly. As you know, a stack of mismatched bracelets is Springs’s hottest accessory trend. These bracelets are a great way to show off your unique style and will give every look a feel-good bohemian spin. Every jewelry collection needs one or two very special signature pieces, and you are sure to find an armful at Emerson Ryder. Currently hanging from my wrist are the Emerson Ryder Rosa Ballerina and A Piu Stelle, my personal favorites!

A Note From The Designer:

“I grew up acting and modeling in La and always LOVED fashion and especially jewelry. After I got married And had a baby I had this extra time and a fire in me to just make some pieces. I had always collected different beads and charms from all around the world and new I would one day make something. My grandma started collecting charms for me as a child and made me beautiful charm bracelets so I knew I would like to make something similar.

The Gun on Turqoouise and the diamond disc on Pyrite were my first obsessions and loves!  I started wearing them and my friends asked me to make some for them and their friends and so on. So I Decided to have my first trunk show and I would call my jewelry Emerson Ryder ( the names of my 2 children who are the loves of my life) I had stayed up every night for 3 weeks making almost 100 pieces and was SHOCKED when I was sold out…
And now I am venturing into necklaces bracelets and earrings.  I truly feel blessed and honored  everyday that I get to make stuff I love and people actually buy it! Its Almost as rewarding as having kids :)”
