Inside Saint Clair Jewelry's Boho Studio

Full disclosure: With D.C. being the insanely small town that it is, we have known Cameron Archer since she was 12 — and, yes, she was stylish then, too. Now, as the creative genius behind Saint Clair Jewelry, the District native has been stealing hearts (and beautifying necks, ears, and wrists) as a full-time jewelry designer.
Her line is chock-full of stunning pieces with a natural, earthy, and understated vibe, always coupled with a subtle edge. Think tough, twisted chains and rough crystals and stones. These are the kind of pieces that work just as well with a sexy LBD as with your most basic jeans-and-tee ensemble, effortlessly elevating your entire wardrobe.
And, judging by the year Archer's had? The masses are equally obsessed. From her popular flea market stall to the counter space she's snagged at Redeem, Trohv, and Salt & Sundry, Archer is poised to be the next big indie jewelry designer. We were lucky enough to get a first look at her brand-new workspace inside the 52 O Street artist studios, where we delved into her inspirations and design process; burned some sage; and swooned over incredible Saint Clair pieces in the flesh. Prepare to be obsessed!
