Pamela Love's name is inextricably connected to the beautiful baubles she creates — the celebrity-loved necklaces and rings that feature anatomical charms and turquoise stones set against carefully wrought metals. But, we couldn't help but notice — and obsess over — Pamela Love, the person, whose style MO is as much about vintage bell-bottoms and chambray as it is about the perfect pendant.
A former painter's assistant who started making jewelry from her Brooklyn apartment, Love is now a CFDA Award winner releasing five collections a year. Her brand aesthetic marries the visceral and the whimsical, while holding sustainability as a top priority. Yeah, there are tons of copycats out there, but Love's jewelry has an authentic, one-of-a-kind flavor that can't be faked.
And, when it comes to what she wears to make (and show off) her accessories, she believes denim is the perfect canvas. This jewelry designer has been stockpiling Levi's® since her Dead Head days (back when she dreamed of owning a purple VW Beetle), and she wears the stuff 'til it's "basically underwear" — over tights, under flannels, and always heavily accessorized.
For the scoop on everything from her rings to her jeans, we got an exclusive peek into her Lovefest with the brand. Peep some eye candy, and find out why this artist chooses to #LiveInLevis, ahead.
