Native New Yorker Pamela Love began making jewelry in her Brooklyn apartment in 2007. Since then, she has created a full production facility and design studio in Manhattan's garment district. The line is committed to sustainability and localized production. All gemstones and semiprecious stones are ethically sourced and almost all metal used is recycled. The entire jewelry-making process, from design to sampling to full-scale production, is completed domestically with the majority of it done in-house at Love's Manhattan studio. Love has collaborated with a wide range of acclaimed and emerging artists, designers and retail brands, including: Creatures of the Wind, Monique Lhuillier, Zadig and Voltaire, Nine West, Zac Posen, Suno, J Crew, Topshop, Rogan, Opening Ceremony (with director Spike Jonze).
"Pamela Love is one of my favorite jewelry designers. Not just
because her designs are incredible, but because she cares so
much about the sources behind her inspiration and the cultures
connected to them as well. . . From North African patterns and
Mexican folk art to medieval European iconography, Pamela draws
inspiration from a wide range of sources. [Pamela Love: Muses
and Manifestations] showcases those sources, alongside her many
mood boards that she keeps in her NYC studio."
"Today, Love is revealing the process behind her unique creations in a new book from Rizzoli. Titled Muses and Manifestations, it's part visual memoir and part intimate design journal. Yet of more importance to Love, it's a celebration of the near decade that she's been in business and a reflection of her personal journey . . . you'll see the breakdown of some of her most popular pieces, including the hammered arrowhead ring and the much-imitated, but never duplicated five-spike earrings, as well as her design sketches and archival photographs."
